    Cannot open /var/lib/alsa/asound.state for writing

    Hi, decided to install arch and am stuck at one of the steps detailed in the guide.

    I try to run
    # alsactl -f /var/lib/alsa/asound.state store
    but it gives me the error message

    save_state:1532: Cannot open /var/lib/alsa/asound.state for writing: No such file or directory
