    Permissions in Slackware


    OK, Slackware 9.1/KDE is installed yet again. I'm determined to give this a go.

    1. Audio - arts server running and alsa selected from kde control centre. Sounds fine, allows 2 apps to use the sound card at the same time. However, UT2003 and et now have no sound. Get sound by turning off the arts server. Looking for perfection here so would want also to be running and eveything to work Onboard i810 chip.

    2. Mounting - still only root can mount cds. Any idea how to get user to be able to mount?

    3. Samba running, Cups running. Yet there is no option in the Cups page at port 631 to use a smb queue for my remote printer on a windows box. Any ideas?

    Ta. (for now)

    2. Can you post your fstab?

    Hiya Sarumont, fstab below

    /dev/hdb1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdb5 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,owner 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    And while I'm here I have a cd-rw which hasn't been detected. How'd I go about adding that?

    Code:
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 user,noauto,owner,ro 0 0
    And for the cd-rw, just locate where it is, with dmesg, and just make the symlinks and scsi-emulation (if required) and the fstab listing..

    Really need help with this.

    fstab as below.


    /dev/hdb1 swap swap defaults 0 0
    /dev/hdb5 / reiserfs defaults 1 1
    /dev/hda1 /mnt/windows ntfs users,noauto,ro 0 0
    /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,users,ro,uid=1000 0 0
    /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,users 0 0
    devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
    proc /proc proc defaults 0 0

    I've managed to get audio working as user by making myself a member of every group listed in KUser. However, cdrom and windows won't let me mount or view contents unless I log in as root. Always get permission probs. Permissions are set to User:root and Group:root. Even though I've made myself a member of group root it still won' let me in.



    Anyone?

    Perhaps if anyone has slackware and can access devices as user? Maybe post your fstab, also what groups your user belongs to and the permissions on the /mnt directory?

    Ta.

    OK...for the fstab line, you don't need the umask. Just these options:

    Code:
    user,noauto,ro
    Also...what kernel version are you running?

    Ta for that sarumon.

    Kernel is 2.4.22, Slack 9.1.

    Confession time. Plonker here had been trying to

    # mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

    from a terminal window. I was trying to mount the dev to a directory, which was already done in fstab.

    I should have used

    # mount /mnt/cdrom



    Both cdrom and windows partition are working fine now.
