Gnome errors


I have just finished building Gnome from blfs and most of it seems to work fine. However, when I log out I see these errors on the screen -

(nautilus:3224): Eel-Critical **: preferences_entry_remove_callback: assertion 'entry->callback_list != NULL' failed

**(nautilus:3224): WARNING **: destroyed file still being monitored

(gnome-panel:3226): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_unref: assertion 'object->ref_count > 0' failed

Can anyone enlighten me a little please. It seems my gnome is a little sick and I would like to try and restore him to full health.

Thanks

Well, unless things inside Gnome are crashing on you, I think those errors are fairly safe to ignore.

When I start Gnome I get the message
'no volume control elements and/or devices found.

I have gnome-media installed so I don't understand this at the moment. What is Gnome looking for?

Do you have your soundcard configured correctly?

When I log in as root I don't get this message so I guess it is a permissions problem. Can you give me an idea which files I need to give access to the user in order to run the sound volume control.

Thanks

When I try and run alsamixer as a user I get -

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: Permission denied

So I guess this is the source of the problem. Could you tell me how I give a user access to this function?

Thanks

I fixed the problem. There was no world read access for the files in /dev/snd.

I did chmod 666 /dev/snd/*

and now I can change the volume control and run alsamixer.
