Description of problem: Alsamixer doesnt store the volume settings, even if the
settings are set and save with alsactl store ( from the alsa-utils package)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.18.0

How reproducible: 
Seems to ne be reproducible by everyone, but there are some people encountering
this " bug " if it is.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open alsamixergui
2.Set the volume setting you want for PCM for example
4.Re-open alsamixergui, The settings were not saved
Actual results:
The settings must be saved and applied at every boot 

Expected results:
The settings aren't saved and we need to open alsamixergui at everyboot to set
the volume

I found an issue about the fact that " they are not saved "
NO, in fact they are saved when entering in runlevel 0 or 6, but there is
apparently with some people, NO "restore" ( salsa restore or alsactl restore )
at boot ( rc.sysinit )

Workaround :
This can be solved by writing in a console under root " salsa restore " or "
alsactl restore " under normal user 
Comment 5 Overflow 2007-07-14 08:23:03 EDT
Little error :

it's salsa -l and not salsa restore

anyway, you can put " /sbin/alsactrl restore " or " /sbin/salsa -l " in
gnome-session-properties ( I don't know for KDE )
Comment 6 Tom "spot" Callaway 2007-09-17 15:39:18 EDT
Neither alsamixer nor alsamixergui (two separate applications) seem to support
saving mixer state to the /etc/asound.conf file. As this would be a significant
amount of new code (and alsamixergui is no longer maintained upstream), I have
no intent to add it to alsamixergui. If you'd like to make your case to the
alsa-utils maintainer, feel free to open a bug against that component.

Using alsactl or salsa is the correct solution here.
