    Menus closing, sound driver

    Well, I've had Linux for about a week now. I actually didn't have too many troubles at first, but now something very strange has come up. (I'm using KDE, just to clear that up before I begin)

    Now, I used to use the File Manager quite a bit (K-Menu -> System -> More Program -> File Manager - Super User Mode) to get into my Windows drive. However, a couple days ago it began closing less than a second after opening it, thus making it impossible to use. It was really weird, considering I didn't change a single thing on the system. I decided I'd just re-install Slackware because one, a friend of mine walked me through it last time and I wanted to know the installation process better, and two, I hoped that problem would be fixed.

    So, I reinstall Linux, doing a complete re-format of the partition and everything. As odd as it seems, the problem is still there...

    The other problem is that unlike last time, KDE can't seem to find the sound driver. Upon initiation I get the following error:

    device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such device)

    This is a stange problem since it worked just fine the last time I installed Slackware (But not as strange as the first, in my opinion). If anyone has any information on these two problems, it would be much appreciated.

    Before when you were using superuser mode, were you logged in as the root user? This might be why your sound was working as well.

    If you created a new user with this new install, instead of using the root user, then your sound shouldn't work because only root has access to /dev/dsp*. Log in as the root user to see if your sound is working.

    A quick way to fix your sound so that all users can use it should be to do a: chmod ugo+rwx /dev/dsp* Must be root or su to do this. There is a better way such as employing a group called audio, and putting audio devices in this group, and allowing certain users access to this group. If you want to find out how to do this, then search this forum, I've mentioned this before, several times I think.

    I'm not familiar with KDE at all, so I'm not going to be able to help with the superuser mode.
