HowTO: Save and Restore ALSA settings on Startup/Shutdown

First problem of the day. :-)

Incase you are curious, or you find that everytime you reboot, Ubuntu resets your alsa volume settings back to mute or 100%. You don’t have to resort to custom script or cronjobs. Ubuntu has everything setup already, it is just disabled for what appears to be “speed” reasons.

Run the following in a terminal:

sudo mv /etc/rc0.d/K50alsa-utils /etc/rc0.d/S50alsa-utils
sudo mv /etc/rc6.d/K50alsa-utils /etc/rc6.d/S50alsa-utils

and reboot your workstation. All alsa settings will now be saved/restored for you automatically on startup/shutdown.

    Thanks, but: Ubuntu 9.10, went straight back to 100% after the reboot. Any other ideas?
