What I meant is that I have the same problem (but different sound chip)
since BETA3, with all mixer's volumes 0 after a reboot. And it doesn't
seems to be a driver problem, since all the sound components seem to be
detected right and the current states are saved  to /var/db/mixer0-state
/ restored when I start or stop by hand /etc/rc.d/mixer

Only on boot the volumes are set to 0, no matter what it is in

Maybe there has been a change in the rc subsystem and the keywords are
now wrong ? I didn't found any.
