I've got my FreeBSD system setup with KDE and sound. I have 2 questions: 1. I got sound to work simply by doing "kldload snd" but then I did kldstat and saw that all available sound modules had been loaded. I thought that was unnecessary - is there any way (besides inserting each module one at a time) that I can determine which exact module is providing the driver for my sound card?
2. I can play a music CD just fine as root, using cdcontrol, as described in the handbook. But under KDE, running as a non-root user, I cannot play music CDs. I looked at the permissions on /dev/acd0c, and they are 0640, root.operator, so an ordinary user cannot read the CD. I changed the permissions to 0644, and I could play the CD. However, there must be a good reason for the permisisons to be 0640, and I don't want to mess up the permissions just to get the CD player to work. What is the "official" way to get this to work? The handbook didn't mention it. -- Anand Buddhdev http://anand.org To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-questions" in the body of the message
