funny. my RH80 based machine does NOT restore the saved mixer
settings at the moment. (i use the latest cdrom images; with the
previous cdrom images i am sure it worked!)

after startup/login, all sound channels are muted. after executing
'alsactl restore' as root i get immediately my previously saved
settings (because i did follow the instructions with the 'alsactl
save' step, heh  =)

any clues as to where to look to fix it?

thanks, ALEX
