[pulseaudio-discuss] permanent microphone boost

I spent a bit of time on this issue, the ephemeral mic boost. I found out a way to consistently reproduce it: by rebooting. 

In other words, if I enable mic boost with the Alsa mixer and reboot, the tick box is not checked anymore after booting. And this is true using both the gnome-alsamixer, as well as alsamixer, that comes in the Fedora alsa-utils package.

So the question remains, does anybody know if there any way to enable mic boost "permanently" in PulseAudio, or at least so that it survives a reboot?

If there is no way, it is not the end of the world. Today I found out that there is a command line tool, amixer, that also comes in the alsa-utils package. So if the issue cannot be solved in PulseAudio what I will probably do is attempt to call amixer in my login script.

Thanks in advance.
