Account and sound configuration

hallo all,

after installing bebian, i got no sound on my laptop. Thanks to googling, the following scenario was found and works as root.

1.) apt-get install esound-clients
2.) mv /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base /root <-- i did that because i felt that this file disturbed me from getting sound out of my tecra 8000. if denyerecs way is better, than pls tell me.
3.) vi /etc/modprobe.d/tecra_sound
# ALSA Configuration.
alias snd-card-0 snd-opl3sa2

# some stuff for the OSS drivers
alias char-major-14 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# aliases for sound card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
4.) vi /etc/modules
snd-opl3sa2 dma1=1 dma2=0 fm_port=0x388 irq=5 isapnp=0 midi_port=0x330
port=0x538 sb_port=0x220 wss_port=0x530 <--- its one long row!
5.) apt-get install libesd-alsa0

However when I enter the box as a user, the notebook becomes mute. Why does this configuration only work for root, since the configuration files in /etc apply to all the users?

Thanks in advance.

Did you remember to add yourself to the "audio" group?

is it legitimate and allowed and can be done to make another user account set uid and gid to null 0 to make another root account with different name and possibly not damage the debian system creating and using that new account BenJoBoy Linux - Newbie 12 01-29-2006 10:02 AM
