I just install Slackware to give it a try. I face this problem, after get the sound working i login as USER, i needed to adjust the volume as it is too loud but i try to open kmix to help me to do that but there is no tuner nothing for me to adjust!!!?? Its just a blank pop up window. But if i log in as root I am able to see all the tuners and was able to adjust it. Any ideas why??

Change permissions for everyone.
Youi need to chmod as root
/dev/mixer
/dev/dsp
/dev/sequencer
with chmod +rwx <filename>
And then it should work

hi Sifvion

I have the same problem with kmail with debian, kd3 3.1.2 and kmail 3.1.2. I also cant save my addressbook, if i try to save it it says "Unable to Save - KAddressBook" "There was an error while attempting to save the address book. Please check that some other application is not using it."

I wanted to ask if you found out how to correct the error and if yes if you could post the answer here.

thx, eli

Hi, eli.

The fix for me was to delete the files in

~/.kde/share/apps/kabc/lock/
