/dev/dsp permissions

Posted 03-30-2009 at 02:54 PM by shannonbay

Fixed sound for my regular users (sound worked fine for root in KDE). Was a simple matter of adding user to group audio, which I did through KUser.

Fixed disappearing eth0... maybe?

Posted 03-30-2009 at 04:43 PM by shannonbay

I added the following lines to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:
Code:
alias eth0 tg3
modprobe tg3
Will see whether that works - eth0 has stayed put through two reboots.

Not much success with the graphics adapter yet. Got it from here:

Things you can do using Linux, but impossible on Windows

Here is a compiled list from a LinuxQuestion posting (will be update accordingly):

6. Surf the internet, download files, pick up email without fear of the computer becoming infected with viruses, malware, etc. Linux - yes. Windows - it is possible to run as limited user which can limit malmare, but from my experience, it is difficult to use a Windows system as a limited user, and most people probably don't.

5. Ressurect old computer and use it as firewall, server, etc....

Thank you, I'll give that a shot and report back
