    Can you run ''ls -l /dev/dsp' and put the results here. I'm betting that the permission isn't set correctly. You'll either need to give the permissions for OTHERS or put yourself into the group that this device belongs to. Eitherway will work but the first method might involve security threats.

    It isn't a permissive error. pam_console has chowned the file to you. Can you post the output of "cat /dev/dsp" and "lsmod"?

    Dolda,

    What is pam_console. Is this a better method than setting the appropriate permissions?

    You can configure certain devices in /etc/security/console.perms, and pam_console will chown them to whoever logs in at the physical console (ie. not over the network or any serial console or anything).
