Alsamixer not remembering settings?
Due to a hard drive failure, I recently had to re-install F23, KDE spin on my desktop. In doing so I've been tripping over the same problem with Alsamixer that I had initially - I have no sound through my headphones after a reboot.
So I go to Alsamixer, use the good ol' F6 key to make sure the right sound device (the motherboard's built in sound and not the camera I have (had) mounted on my monitor), then F5 to find the sound to my headphones is muted at boot. So I un-mute it, enjoy my music, powerdown for the evening, rinse and repeat.
Originally, back in Nov. when F23 was first introduced, I noticed the same thing. But then it stopped happening (sound came up with me headphones un-muted) after, oh, about 3 days. Don't know why. Thought it might be some other update I hadn't noticed, but it was nothing intentional on my part.
But this time, after 5 days I'm still finding Alsamixer has forgotten the settings. I've always brought down Alsamixer using the escape key, so I'm I terminating it improperly? Is there some other magic incantation that I'm missing? Is it the devil-demon-dogs in my computer?
