Heh.. I should have explored more before asking. It all comes down to /etc/rc.d/mixer. This script resets all the volume levels from a saved state. The way to change it, (with persistence) is to set the mixer levels manually, then run '/etc/rc.d/mixer stop' which saves the current state. Fortunately I named my unnecessary script 'volume' so that it hasn't overwritten the canonical /etc/rc.d/mixer script. :) David -- Sure God created the world in only six days, but He didn't have an established user-base. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
