Configure requred settings persistently

By default alsamixer does not store configuration persistently and it will be reset after reboot.

In order to avoid this, execute the following steps:

  • Run alsamixer and set required configuration (press Esc when finished):
  • Save current driver state into configuration file:
sudo alsactl store
  • Add the following command to one of the startup scripts:
sudo alsactl restore
