Question Sound in Slack for users


Hi Guys!

I got my third box up & running with slack, sound, network
and all .... BUT only root gets sound?

What am I doing wrong?

Cheers,
Tink

Slack and sound permissions.

you have to either make your dsp and mixer devices world writable..
chmod o+rw /dev/mixer
chmod o+rw /dev/dsp

Or, make the users you want to have sound members of the sys group.

Actually, what would be really neat, would be if someone who knows how to get a hold of Patrick kindly suggest he adds this one to the Slackware FAQ, since it's a Slackware specific issue. (Well, ok, feature. It's probably not a good idea to give remote users write permission to sound devices, which is the more comon default)

Chuckle :}

Imagine someone using Netscape on your machine from a remote terminal
and you get the noises of the shockwave plugin, not knowing what's going

Cheers,

You don't have to make dsp writable to all. Tom, Tom2, and root are the only ones that can use it on my system. Its easy, don't let the guy running netscape have access. Many normal people (like me) also don't have people logging in and using their system. I use it as my normal OS and the only person who would ever telnet (well ssh) to my system would be my other boxes on the family network.
