sound permission question

on a standalone machine, can't i just add my user account to the sys group?

usermod -G sys username

is there any advantage to creating a separate audio group or registering sound to the users group?

by the way, i'm new to arch and loving it!

Re: sound permission question

from my point of view i wouldn't say that this akes problems....

The only one is that ur user is now not a non-priviledged users, so that a eventual virus or a trojan could access important system files and change/read/delete them.
In fact this would make a big security hole, but if this box is really standalone and does not have any dangerous files on it i see no problem with that

maybe I have a perfect signature _someday_
