    Is there any way to change the mixer vol permanently? The default mixer vol is 75 which is too low for me. I use
    mixer vol 100
    which give me good volume. However, once I reboot the computer the mixer vol is set to default 75 again. I'm wondering if there is any configuration file for mixer.

    There most certainly is, and it comes in the form of /etc/rc.d/mixer.

    First set the volume to your likings with mixer(8), run # sh /etc/rc.d/mixer stop, this will save the current mixer state in /var/db/mixern-state
    running # sh /etc/rc.d/mixer start will restore the mixer state from /var/db/mixern-state

    By default mixer_enabled="YES" is set /etc/defaults/rc.conf

    [option] tune the mixer as root

    change it as root, the changed value will remain.
    at least this works on my box.

    When using KDE, kmix will restore settings by default, so the last settings your user used as it logged out are restored, independent of /etc/rc.d/mixer.
