Hello. I have a trouble with playing sound as a normal user. The first time I tried it was a permission problem, so I went to /dev/sound/ and changed all the device permissions there, which did the trick. However, after a reboot, the permissions weren't saved and so I have to do the process after every reboot. Any ideas as to how making it permanent?
Also, I'd like to create a runlevel which will launch gdm for me, I've never edited runlevels before, so can you help me out? I also don't know where to change the default runlevel so help would be appreciated.
this can be found in the forums so many times, and why an extra runlevel just add gdm to your /etc/rc.conf.
Freedom is what i love
Why another runlevel... Because X sometimes gets messed up so a console only runlevel is of need. Also if you wish to update the nVidia drivers, for example.
Is it possible?
EDIT: Thanks a lot for the ALSA tutorial, never realized it's that easy to configure
Main file for runlevels is /etc/inittab
Open it and change the line
I don't know where is the gdm, for kdm I changed it to
Then you define the default runlevel (i.e. 5, obviously) in line
When you install NVidia drivers just boot to runlevel 3.
Oh, didn't know such a runlevel was already there.
Thanks a lot gdm is loacated at /opt/gnome/bin/gdm in case you were wondering.
I just put gdm under deamons in /etc/rc.conf :?
Speaking about gdm... I configured it so that it would auto log in after 10 seconds, but once these 10 seconds are up it prompts for the user password, that makes auto login a bit non automatic.
Any ideas as to how to get rid of that prompt?
