Description of problem:
The /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt saves the mixer settings in the
wrong file. The system wide aumix config file is
/etc/aumixrc, not /etc/.aumixrc. (see man aumix(1)).
People who use the aumix command end up not getting the
aumix rc setting saved by the halt initscript.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.grep aumixrc /etc/rc.d/init.d
Actual Results: The man page shows that the system wide default for aumix is
/etc/aumixrc but /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt uses /etc/.aumixrc.
Expected Results: /etc/rc.d/init.d/halt saves the current settings in the
system wide /etc/aumixrc file.
As jmd moted in bug #78785, the halt init command saves
the init script makes use of an uncustomary dot file in /etc.
I agree with his point as well.
Also note that the post-install for the sound-slot-0 should
also use /etc/aumixrc as well. I.e., the /etc/modules.conf line
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
Also has bug #78783 been fixed in RHEL3?
This probably won't be changed, as it's a flag day and breaks users
