This is a fresh install, not an upgrade.

There is no rc on this system, so normally you would
rc-update add alsasound default
to persist the mixer-settings between reboots but that doesn't work with systemd

On systemd installs, there should be a pair of services called
alsa-store
alsa-restore


To handle the same task, but for some reason they do not exist on my system.

I also looked for references to pulse but there are none either.

Thanks for reading

You need pavucontrol for proper restore of volume level on boot.
Code:
# emerge -av pavucontrol

After emerging the package set desired level in the Output Devices tab.

Hi vasettoo! I read your post after finding a different solution:

I installed alsa-utils and then
Code:
rc-update add alsasound boot
Quote:
* service alsasound added to runlevel boot

I'm not certain that last step was even necessary
Since this system is systemd-only, openrc probably isn't involved anymore.

After reboot, the volume-level is now preserved and the services alsa-restore.service and alsa-state.service are now listed as being static when queried by systemctl list-unit-files

I did not install pavucontrol, it does not seem to be necessary.

Thanks!

Yes, indeed alsa-utils is another option for solving the problem, but I get degraded volume levels with multimedia players when alsa-utils are installed. My solution was the pavucontrol package.

I haven't seen that behaviour yet but I'll keep your advice in mind, thank you, vasettoo!
