    Hey folks.

    Under Mandrake 9.2 I have been without sound since day one. I logged on as root today to check this out (machine said run artswrapper as root, it already was) and the root user has sound. My question is this, how do I mirror those settings to the user to give sound to my day-to-day use?

    The errors it gives are:
    1: Sound disabled ...
    2: Sound server warning message:
    Can't set real-time scheduling priority.
    You need to run artswrapper as root or
    setuid root. This means that you will
    likely not be able to produce acceptable
    sound (i.e. without clicks and breaks).

    Thanks, please answer as simply as possible, I'm still new to this!! (y)

    check the permissions of /dev/dsp or create a group that has access to /dev/dsp and join that group..

    The group audio is sometimes used.
