No sound anymore after some changes
I did some changes to my system.
First off all I hadn't any login manager at startup, so I activated it by changing /etc/inittab
Then I had the problem, that my user was not listed in /etc/shells.
So I modified my /etc/passwd and added /bin/bash/ to my user account.
Everything worked except the sound.
My xfce4-mixer gave me the error below:
If I login with my user account, I get the error and don't have any sound
I'm always using xfce4 as window manager, but if I login with kde4, I also have sound.
Before the systemchanges, I had no problems with my soundsystem.
Does someone know how to solve this issue?
try add your user name to /etc/group
I'm having a bad experience using Pulse Audio because Dropline Gnome install. I got some tips here, then check if your user account is part of the audio group or only root.
Suggested groups after pressing up arrow;
As to editing the '/etc/inittab', that's fine. But you could have just used 'startx' to test things out.
Just a few links to aid you to gaining some understanding. Sure some may seem beyond a newbie but you must start somewhere;

@onebuck, many thanks for the links. I didn't add my username to /etc/shells, I just added /bin/bash to my user account in /etc/passwd.
After that I got some permission problems with some tools, like GStreamer and NetworkManager.
I was just aiming to get the login manager work, but it prompted me that my username was not listed in the shells.
root@slackware ~> adduser
Login name for new user : user
User ID ('UID') [ defaults to next available ]: 500
after that hit enter and change password and when new user complete add it in /etc/group
I would do the same thing that Rody suggested. If one or two things on the user account are off, there could be more. Best just to add a new user and set all the permissions that way.
