Exclamation ALSA question - please help!


Ok I've done searches and came up with nothing. Here's my problem:
My sound works, but for some reason, "alsactl store" isn't storing! I even deleted the /etc/asound.state file, and re-saved the mixer settings, but every time I restart, it is back to how I saved it the very first time. Any ideas?

EDIT: Apparently alsactl store works, because if I do an alsactl restore, it loads my values. I thought it did this during boot??

check the rc.alsa and whether it is executable and not uncommented in the rc.M

Ok I think KDE might be the problem...when I tried FluxBox, the sound remembered what it was supposed to. So that means that KDE is restoring some other file, and I can't tell what.

maybe arts (KDE's sound server) just doesn't know which sound drivers it's supposed to take.

Go into KDE's control center -> Sound & Multimedia -> Sound System -> Sound I/O -> Sound I/O method = Autodetect or Advanced Linux Sound Architecture.

Or set it up manually below that dropdown box. I believe my alsa has always been behind /dev/sound. Not sure about that though.

I already have it set to "auto" there...when I had it on ALSA, it gave errors when it booted up. Hmm...maybe I'll just learn how to use FluxBox.....
