I am having some trouble with audio with PCLinux system (pclinuxos-openbox-bonsai-2010.11.iso). After installation I noticed that I did not have audio so I installed some alsa packages (alsaconf, alsa-utils,alsamixer). Checked that the snd_hda_intel was the selected one in the "Control Center", and also checked that the volume was not muted. Still I cannot hear a sound.
The only way I find to enable audio is run "alsactl init", but I got to do it every time I start the computer and the sound (even with the volume control at 100% and the mixer bars at top) is a tad low. Any ideas of how I could get the sound to work properly?
Some notes about the audio card:
>lspcidrake -v | fgrep -i AUDIO

>/sbin/chkconfig --list alsa
alsa 0:off 1:off 2:on 3:on 4:on 5:on 6:off 7:off
It looks to me as the drivers are present and loaded, so I cannot figure out what I am doing wrong. Or why the audio settings do not stick between reboots.
Thanks for your help.
