Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Alot of my device files (/dev) have my main user as owner (instead of root) and permissions are set to everything for the owner, nothing for group or other people. I noticed this when my dad's account couldn't acces my sound device. I have never done a chown or whatever on that folder, how is this possible? Did slackware set those permissions?
My questions is: is there a way to set default permissions and ownership in /dev, because setting them all by hand is going to take forever. Any help is appreciated.
I mean, only root can still login. Other users can't even do that. After many hours of googling i've found out about MAKEDEV in /dev that can remake the devices. But it doesn't remake all of them so I still have to chmod 777 for users to be able to even login.
