Note: it's easy to turn MDM on and off with "$ rcconf" proggy.
Off = get command line login prompt;
On = X and window manager start automagically.
This fixed the audio when using xinit rather than mdm/autologin (MD off):
# usermod -G audio username (edit: SEE BELOW)
Edit: the above removed "username" from sudoers ... big fat WINDOWS-STYLE SIGH.
It's easy to fix tho, login as root and add this line to /etc/sudoers:
"username ALL=(ALL) ALL"
IT SHOULD BE:
- Code: Select all
# usermod -a -G audio username
with the "-a"
