Slackware 14.0 sound fails when starting with runlevel 4.
After installing Slackware_14.0 I changed /etc/inittab to boot runlevel 4 and get a gui-based login screen. This works for logging in, but the VIA 8237 sound card then doesn't work. If I log-out to the console and run startx, KDE starts up and the sound works fine.
How can I fix this so sound works from the gui-based login?
The change I made to /etc/inittab is as follows:
# Default runlevel. (Do not set to 0 or 6)
I found that in order to use my sound card in gui I had to add my user account to the "audio" group. Check /dev for your card, it probably has a root:audio ownership.
Hope it helps.
Thanks Thanks! Thanks!
usermod -G audio -a <your_user_account>
