to get my sound working under gnome i just added myself to the audio group and now the sound works.
but everytime i restart gnome the volume control isn't stored but is set to 0 instead (same for xmms).
how can i get them to store the volumes?
add alsa to your daemons() array in /etc/rc.conf. That will save/restore volume levels during power down/reboot.
Take a look at the Wiki
Arch GNU/Linux 0.7.1 (Noodle)
Easyest way is:
*put your volumes in*
# alsactl store
then put alsa in the daemons array in rc.conf
that should do the trick
