Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 243635
Mute doesn't work on reboot
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:07 EST
Description of problem:
When the system is rebooted with the volume muted using the volume control
applet, the volume is not muted after the restart.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fresh install of Fedora 7 with latest updates (as of 7:00 PM EST June 10, 2007)
How reproducible: Very reproducable
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mute the sound card using the Gnome Volume Control applet (right click the
applet, and click on "Mute")
2. Reboot the system and log back in
3. Play a sound. (The sound used in my test was in Firefox while navigating
around MySpace. Go to any blog page with music on it.)
The sound will play, while the Volume Control applet still shows the output is
The sound output should be muted, even after a reboot.
This is happening on an HP DV5000T CTO laptop. I have not tried on other
systems as of yet.
This is a problem with ALSA and the ALSA utils not remembering the settings.
gnome-volume-control uses the ALSA mute controls, so it should be remembered
