Question Sond for users


I am having a couple of strange problems. THe one I come here today with is I used alsaconf to setup my sis 7012 (Intel8X0) cound card and it works fine for the user root but for everyone else the sound is distorted and cuts to nothing but static most of the time.

oh yeah, I am running slacckware 9.1, 2.4.22 kernal

chmod 777 /dev/snd* /dev/dsp* /dev/mix*
that shoudl fix, basically you are giving permissions for everyone to use the devices.

nope, basically my user logins get staticy noise mixed with bits of the real sounds.
Not only have I tried the above but I have also tried making them members of the sys group (I have no Audio group)

that sounds like a driver error, are you sure sound works for root?
