Sound driver configuration

I am new user of Linux. I have configured my sound drivers many times. After doing this i am able to listen a sound. But after booting there is necessary to configure them again. So is there a any way for permanent configuration.

Typically your last sound configuration will be saved. Unfortunately ‘typically’ does not work for all.

What configuration are you trying to save? Is it necessary to reboot for your sound, or is this just a normal ‘end of the day’ type shutdown/reboot?

If you ‘think’ it is necessary to reboot, what happens if instead you restart your alsa sound driver (and if running KDE select “YES” to permanently forget). You can restart alsa sound driver in a terminal by typing:

su -c 'rcalsasound restart'

and enter root password when prompted for a password, and then restart your mixer (‘kmix’ in KDE and possibly ‘alsamixer’ in Gnome (not sure about gnome))

It used to be that simply typing in a terminal with root permissions

alsactl store 

would save one’s settings/configuration. Unfortunately in this day of pulse audio, I do not think that works so much any more.
