Greetings all;

I have been forced to open a terminal and do an "alsactl restore" after 
every login despite scattering such around in the rc.local and Xsession 

A misscue with htop killed tdm yesterday, and when it had reinited to the 
login screen, and I had restarted everything that killed, I had no 
sound, indicating the sound killer was maybe part of the stuff that runs 
as root before I login.

So, since its working ATM, I just did a "sudo alsactl store", which if 
its root related, should fix it.  We'll see on the next x restart, 
whether its a reboot or ??  And when I have had to restart, if I then 
have sound, I'll report back.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
