Description Andrea Sterbini 2000-04-12 17:06:49 EDT
I like to have all sound devices belonging to the group "sound" with RW
This way I can enable who I want to use the sound devices.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-04-13 10:57:59 EDT
If you change the line in /etc/security/console.perms that reads:
<console>  0600 <sound>     0640 root.sys
<console>  0660 <sound>     0640 root.sound
This will solve your problem.  Users logged in at the console will always have
permission to access the sound devices, and when no one's logged in (other than
root, of course), the sound group will have read/write permission.
