How are you logging in?
gdm and kdm use ConsoleKit to properly set /dev/* permissions. If you're using
some other method, that's it.
Else, ConsoleKit isn't properly doing its thing, for some reason.
Plain console login (runlevel 3) is also supposed to work with ConsoleKit.
really? coulda sworn I've seen a few reports of "console login + startkde" not
working for precisely this reason. ??
"supposed to" doesn't necessarily mean it actually works. ;-)
AFAIK, the PAM setup to register runlevel 3 sessions with ConsoleKit is there,
it might not be working though.
i use kdm and kde 3.5.9-5. i've console-kit running in runlevel 3 & 5, but
/dev/dsp & /dev/mixer has permision denied for other users. i've tried to change
permision and restart sound system but again i found /dev/* with permissions
denied. I've also tried to modify /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-defult with
<console> 0666 <sound> 0600 root
and it didn't work.
i've changed permission to /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer and without restart sound
sytem icould play amarok but i hadn't sound in firefox
i've just discover that i can't either access to /dev/sr0 (my burning dvd) with
K3b, i've changed permissions and i can. So i think that is a problem of
consolekit. ¿How can i fix this bug? I've read the consolekit.conf and i cant
Let see if the kind ConsoleKit folks can help diagnose why this isn't working
properly for you.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '8'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 8's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 8 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
