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.
