First off I'm using a thinkpad 600E. I did get the sound to work properly but I'm pretty sure the permissions are hosed for my normal user. As root zsnes, xmms and everything else sees alsa just fine, as my normal user it's flat out says permission denied.
I've looked and my regular user is a part of the "sound" group. I followed a guide that someone linked here and I've been unable to find the post. here's what the group entry looks like in /etc/group
I'm unaware how to look at the permissions for the device itself. Also my regular user is a member of wheel as well. In th interim I can just su and run my emu's but I'd prefer not too for obvious reasons, any advice?
what did you add to the /etc/devfsd.conf ?
Freedom is what i love
REGISTER sound/.* PERMISSIONS root.sound 660
REGISTER snd/.* PERMISSIONS root.sound 660 <--Sound was mispelled in this line....
Spelling sound right fixed the problem...I totally forgot I had to add that stuff to devfsd.conf or I would have checked prior to posting sorry for wasting everyon'es time
posts like this don't really waste anyones time. typos/fat finger typing actually cause more problems than most will admit :oops:
if anything, some will probably revisit their own configs and discover a typo that fixes their problem.
