Re: KDSC/noatun work only when run by root
On my debian Etch system with Gnome desktop, when run by a user kdsc doesn't
play a cd, and noatun crashes, but both work when run by root. The user ID is
in the audio group and all gnome audio applications work correctly. Previously
kscd worked correctly, and the problems seem to have started when I killed
artsd. I have tried logging out and rebooting. Any help is appreciated.
Sorry, that should be kscd.
Update: I don't know if this is related to the problem, but I get this error
repeated on the command line when I alternately click on the play and start
buttons in kscd:
alsa_write failed: File descriptor in bad state
Alsa seems to be working fine. No new entries appear in .gnome-errors,
.kde2-errors, or .xsession-errors
