Can't save mixer changes between reboots
« on: November 18, 2008, 10:34:16 pm »
My title says it all.  How do I save the changes I make in the kmix console?  It always resets after a reboot.

Rather than use kmixer, use the CLI bits for alsa. Open up a term via ssh or locally with 'CTRL' 'ALT' "F2" (get back by doing 'CTRL' 'ALT' 'F7')
Run:
Code: [Select]
alsamixerWill give you the sliders to set your outputs. Once happy, hit 'ESC' key to exit application. Then to save it do a:
Run:
Code: [Select]
alsactl store
This will make your settings stick on a reboot. Keep in mind, that if you use the "Rebuild Image" option from the web admin, your settings will have changed again.

Instead of futzing around like this. Let's work together to get some templates made for these configurations so that none of this is needed.

Thom, I'd be glad to.  How do I go about making a template?

By the way, aslactl store does not save settings.  They revert back after normal reboot.

But AFAIK you can put command line to restore them in /etc/rc.local...
