I'm following the Arch Beginner's Guide.
I have Arch running. Now I'm working on the post-installation instructions, one of the first parts of which is to unmute the speakers. This is where my problem is.
First, I installed alsamixer
pacman -S alsa-utils
amixer sset Master unmute
I get this error:
amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Master',0
I don't know how to proceed.
