User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701

Description of problem:
I have a user who's using WindowMaker, and have found that
gnome-session, instead of gdm, is doing some hardware (soundcard,
specifically) initialization, so I need to do a root login before
the user logs in locally in order for sound to work properly.
gdm should be doing this, so the user can choose their window

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot up
2.Login with a nonprovided window manager
3.See things not work
4.Get frustrated

Actual Results:  Sound did not work

I don't know of any sound card setup in gnome-session. 
Can you give details on how you are testing sound and what 
error messages you see if any?
Comment 2 Pat Gunn 2003-08-29 10:35:51 EDT
I'm sorry -- with additional testing, it turns out to be unrelated to
the root login -- it's just that the driver for my sound card sometimes
doesn't initialize things correctly.

OK, thanks. Sounds like a kernel issue.
