Hi there.

I am running Ubuntu 8.10 - and latest ALSA.

After restart amixer defaults to default settings.

I am not really sure if this is Ubuntu/Debian specific or an
Alsa issue.

It seems that either a link  /var/lib/alsa/asound.state to /etc/asound.state
is needed
or that /etc/init.d/alsa-utils needs to be updated within the restore
section accordingly.

With the link workaround I managed to get it working.
