I was unable to use the X Multimedia System(CD player) as user. Hence, on the web-site for the player(www.xmms.org
) there is a remedy for this:
Here is their suggestion for this:
10: XMMS works OK as root, but not as a user.
You probably have the wrong permissions on the sound device. As root do this:
chmod 622 /dev/dsp and chmod 666 /dev/mixer
I did what was suggested above. Still I am unable to change the permissions for
the files mentioned above. I am not sure why I am unable to change permissions
as root. Please help.Thanks.
