Alsa will not save sound level

Postby brechtvb » Fri Jul 11, 2008 3:09 pm

Linux is still not saving my alsa-settings, including the sound level. I tried reïnstalling, recompiling Alsa and many other things

/etc/asound.state
/etc/asound.names

do exist and are chmodded 777

aplay-l

It is still the "alsactl store" command that fails. But every sollution that i found for it also fails.

Code: Select all

brecht@brecht-laptop ~ $ sudo alsactl store
[sudo] password for brecht:
alsactl: get_control:209: Cannot read control info '2,0,0,Master Playback Volume,0': No such file or directory
