Question help, kernel update to 2.4.26-1-k7, now no sound


hi everybody,

i just updated my kernel from 2.4.26-1-386 to 2.4.26-1-k7 using "apt-get install kernel-image-2.4.26-1-k7" (i'm using an AMD Athlon system). upon booting the new kernel, i can't get sound to work. i am using OSS as the sound system (it worked perfectly) with the old *-386 kernel. i can boot to the old kernel and still have sound, but not with the new *-k7 kernel.

i did an "lsmod" to make sure my sound driver is loaded. "via82cxxx" is in there (on-board sound), so the sound driver is being loaded.

i may just jump off the 2.4 bandwagon and install 2.6.7-1-k7 along with alsa and go from there. but i want to see if there is something simple i'm missing here first. thanks.

ok, i found the error in my ways.

i checked out "/etc/group" and my user account had somehow been removed from audio, cdrom, video, etc. i dunno how that happened...if it was during the new kernel install or what? another user account that i rarely use was left untouched. all i had to do to get sound and standard functionality back was

Code:
su -c "usermod -G audio,video,cdrom,floppy <username>"
are there any groups that i left out here that most people put their default user account in? thanks again.

If you want to compile kernels and use fakeroot instead of compiling the bad way as root then add your user to the src group and you may want lp if you have a printer here is what I have I did not have to add the adm, lp, dailout, or dip they were there when I installed a couple of years ago.

Code:
>$ groups
stephen adm lp dialout cdrom floppy audio dip src video
