There is no file at /dev/dsp
After writing ' chmod 666 /dev/dsp' on terminal
it is giving error as :

[root@localhost ~]# chmod 666 /dev/dsp
chmod: cannot access `/dev/dsp': No such file or directory
[root@localhost ~]#

I am in the root login.
Thank you....

The issue could be permissions in /dev/snd

'No volume control gstreamer plugins and/or devices found...'error when noticing my volume control had the international "no" symbol on it.

This was my first time booting Fedora 8 since installing nearly 200 updates and many new programs, including some media players, so I'm rather sure that I accidentally changed permissions during this process.

To verify this as the problem, I logged into X as root and noticed my volume control did not complain like it did in my normal user mode.

The solution that worked for me was to run this command:
Code:
(sudo/log in as root)
  chmod -R a+rwx /dev/snd/

The above seemed to only work during a single session. From the FedoraForum I learned to:
edit /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms

Add to the top section:

<sound>=/dev/dsp* /dev/snd/*

Then, at the bottom add

<console> 0666 <sound> 0600 root

This fixes the non-root issue if pulseaudio isn't involved.

Cheers,
Jeremy

I usually use some scripts in /etc/rc2.d/S.... that does some jobs, like startup

(by the way : what is the halt/shutdown /etc/rc??.d/ one )
I'll do a log of halt and power on, to put the date time just to know
