DSP Permissions Reset Themselves in RH9


After applying

[root@P4-2000 root]# chmod 777 /dev/dsp

yesterday, I found upon boot today

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

and

[root@P4-2000 root]# ls -l /dev/dsp
crw------- 1 root root 14, 3 Jan 30 2003 /dev/dsp

i) Why do permissions not stay the way I set them?

ii) Why does the above message say 'No such device' when /dev/dsp clearly exists?

iii) What is the name of the sound server?

Talking not sure...

i found another post on this subject telling to modify a line in /etc/security/console.perms.
the line is:
<console> 0600 <sound> 0600 root.audio
to be changed to:
<console> 0660 <sound> 0660 root.audio
not sure it works...i'll see tomorrow cos i don't feel like rebooting now
tell you if it works

Cool (almost) definitely

seems to work...even if console.perms should set owner to root and my actual owner is set to the first user logging into kde
secondary problem as the important part is the group...
