sound problems on fedora core 2
[I][SIZE=3][FONT=times new roman][COLOR=blue]
iam new to linux
i have installed fedora core 2.
i was not able to hear any sound,but the soundcard detection was proper.
so i used aumix and maxed the master and all other volumes.then the sound came back.
but when i reboot the sound volume again goes to minimum and when i play xmms iam not able to hear any sound.

so anyone help me.iam new to linux.

If the sound works as root the following may help.


Sound works for user 'root' but not for others

This is to do with the fact that the audio device (/dev/dsp) is group owned by 'audio', but none of the users are part of that group. To correct this, run:

adduser <username> audio

Ensuring that if the users you are adding; are logged in at the time you ran the above command, that they logout and log back in again for it to work.
