Unhappy Yes Another Question. Sorry :o(


I am running RedHat 6.0 and Kernel 2.2.5
Long story Short I successfully edit my isapnp.conf file and got my sound card to work. As root and as another in the adm group in Xwindows I can play music. Accounts I create in the user group can't play sound files I tried switching one account to the adm group and still won't play files. The message I get is "No Mixer Configured. Make Sure your kernel has sound support enabled"

Now i may be wrong but if I can play the files as root doesn't the kernel have sound support enabled?

So my question is how do I get my other users accounts to play sound files. All users are on the same machine.

TIA

You probably need to adjust the permissons for the devices you creatd for your sound card (/dev/dsp usually).

To easily fix this, as root, go to your /dev directory and type chmod 666 * -v <---You don't need this but it'll show you what it's doing.
I do a wildcard because noone else uses my Linux but you could instead if you want just do your /dev/dsp , /dev/audio , /dev/mixer , /dev/sequencer with the same command eg. chmod 666 dsp since you are alread in the /dev dir.

Thumbs up Audio Listening

Thanks for your replys. After I restarted my Linux System The audio files played for everyone. Wierd any ways every one has read permission so I will change that so every has read and execute. They wouldn't need write permissions would they? any ways I will check that as I said before sorry for all the questions I just don't have my books with me. Thanks for your Time and Patience

Nope, they wouldn't need write permission, you can always use superuser mode for that. chmod 666 only changes it to rw-rw-rw-
chmod 777 is what changes it to rwx-rwx-rwx-
