Description tkilicli 2000-01-04 12:34:34 UTC
When i try to play a sound in RH6.1, the sound device belongs to mine and other users cannot use the device. This is true for other devices also (e.g. the floppy). I tried with MAKEDEV to create the devices from the beginning but it was only to the other user to log on... it was all over. Sound device is now his OWN device!

This is by design. By default, permissions are set up so that only users logged in at the console can use audio devices (otherwise, remote users could eavesdrop on workstations with microphones attached). To allow users to use the audio devices, find the line in /etc/security/console.perms that reads: <console> 0600 <sound> 0644 root.sys and change it to: <console> 0666 <sound> 0644 root.sys Similarly, modify the line that corresponds to the floppy disk devices to allow remote users to access it. Please let us know if this solves your problem.

I worked on that a bit, but i realised that the first user who logs on to the computer gets the permissions of all devices lik sound, floppy... but when he logs off the devices are not taken from him. He still owns the permission to read and write but no others. I tried the console.perm file but it did not work?
