    Customize with Scrpits


    A few weeks ago, I made a post about a problem I was having with the speakers on my Insprion laptop.

    Since then, I still have to use aumix to turn up PCM to get sound after turning on the computer. Well, I was thinking about this today and was wondering if this is possible: to create a file or script to run on boot to change the sound level for me? How would one go about doing this?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not familiar with how Redhat/Fedora handles initscripts, but this would be your solution. I'd say try a:
    man init
    on your system, that might give you some OS-specific help, not quite sure, but the general premise would be to put either a call to your script in /etc/init.d/rc5.d/functions or place your script in that directory, replacing rc5.d with your default runlevel, and /etc/init.d/rc5.d with where fedora/redhat places the init scripts.
