Very Weird Sound Problem....Permissions?
I have a very peculiar sound problem on my machine. Some programs will not work with sound support unless I am root. A few of them are CannonSmash, TuxRacer and KAlarm. If I have a terminal window open in Gnome and I type in csmash, it will work with no sound....however, if I su and then type it in so I am root, the sound works perfectly...Tuxracer, sometimes the sound works but lags 3 seconds behind the video and sometimes it won't come on....if I am root none of that happens, works perfectly....Kalarm, sounds won't work at all unless I run it as root.
I am running a...
3 GHZ P4 with HyperThreading
768 MB RAM
160 GB HD
NVidia GeForce FX 5200
Under Sound Card Detection my sound card comes up as Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller with Module: snd-intel8x0
I don't know what other specs u might need, post if u need more
Oh, almost forgot, I am running Fedora Core 2.
Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated. TTY all L.
