Re: /dev/mixer's permissions changed?



The problem I'm having is I'm not logged on locally.  The computer is just
hooked up to the network and I have it starting VNC when it boots.  The
part of PAM that is supposed to give ownership of the devices doesn't seem
to count this as a local login, which is why I gave the devices 666
permissions.

I also didn't log in when it broke.  I left VNC connected when I went to
be and the next morning when I tried to play it wouldn't work...
