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):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Login with a nonprovided window manager
3.See things not work
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?
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.
