Sound Configuration Problems
I'm running Slackware 9.1 on a Dell Inspiron 1000. I set up the sound card using alsaconf and chose the 8x10 sound card. I have two problems, neither of which I understand.
1. I can play mp3's from both cd-rom and disk using both xmms and mpg321. However, I cannot play audio cd's. Both the gnome cd player and xmms act as if they are playing the cd (displaying the elapsed and total time, etc.), but there is no sound.
2. I set systems sounds to play - they did not. Then, remembering a problem I had earlier with permissions on my cd-rom drive, I set systems sounds to play under root also. Now, I get system sounds under root, but not under user. Is there a permissions file I don't know about?
