After having run arch-chroot /mnt /usr/bin/bash one of the things I do is 
to run alsactl store.
alsactl store returns error 125 /var/lib/alsa/asound.state no such file or 
directory.  Certainly there's no such file since when alsa was run before 
arch-chroot got run on system boot /mnt/var/lib/alsa directory was empty 
having just run pacstrap on /mnt.  So since this is supposed to work, 
could it be arch-chroot script fails to collect and pass along enough of 
the right environment information to its chrooted environment for alsactl 
store to run?  Details are available at:
