Description Orcan Ogetbil 2012-07-27 00:34:57 UTC
Due to changes in udev on F-17, /dev/snd/seq does not have proper ACL for the logged in user. As a result, any user ((e.g. audio production users) trying to access the Alsa sequencer device gets denied. Please see bug #827655 for background. F-16 does not have this issue.

The solution to the problem is to include a file 
   $ echo snd_seq > /etc/modules-load.d/seq.conf

We thought that this file might be suitable for the alsa-lib package. Could you please include such a file in the alsa-lib package?


Comment 1 Brendan Jones 2012-08-13 22:11:14 UTC
I was wondering if there was any update on this? This bug is of keen interest to the Fedora Audio spin team.


Comment 2 Orcan Ogetbil 2012-08-26 14:09:50 UTC
Brendan, Fernando,
Could you try adding yourself to the "audio" usergroup, logoff/login, and see if you still have the errors?

Comment 3 Jaroslav Kysela 2012-09-06 13:20:13 UTC
I backported the f18 changes (added back the /lib/modprobe.d/dist-alsa.conf file) to alsa-lib- .
