Sound muted on startup of Mandriva 10 LE 2005

Ok, got a question here, why is the audio at startup of Mandriva LE 2005 muted? I currently have a Sound Blastery Audigy 1 OEM, the soundcard works fine, just the fact that it's muted drives me nuts. I have KMixer set to to restore the audio on startup, but I want the sound to be at normal volume without having to check any option in KMixer.

Edit: it should also be noted that I have ALSA enabled as well, not using OSS.

im not sure if mabndriva uses alsa or oss.... but assuming it uses alsa....

# alsactl store

will store the mixer settings so they stay the way you have set them across reboots.

hope taht helps

got another issue, hopefully you can help me out with this one.
I had to do a re-install of MDK 10.2, things got a bit messed up. I previously had ALSA 1.0.8 prior to the re-install. Immediately after I had it re-installed, the first thing I did was install the following RPM's:

after those were installed, I downloaded and compiled ALSA 1.0.9b for my soundcard, as instructed on their site,
The sound is working great. Except once again, I am presented with the same issue I had before. The volume is set to zero at startup, even after I logged in as root and typed alsactl store at the prompt.
