<div dir="ltr"><div>Yeah this is probably not exactly a linux audio problem<br></div>Just thought someone here may have a clue...<br><div><div><br><br><br>I have a couple of linuxes on my box:
<br>/dev/sda6 (LABEL=DebOld) is 32 bit debian
<br>/dev/sda7 (LABEL=Deb64) is a recently installed 64 bit debian
<br>Both these work ok. Both use xfce. Now I want to share the home and I am having issues...
<br>On DebOld home is separately mounted from /dev/sda3
<br>On Deb64 home is part of the root fs and I want to move to using the old
<br>separately mounted home where all my stuff is
<br>The problem is that the numerical id of the (my) username is different in the
two systems. In DebOld the id is 1001 in Deb64 it is 1000.
<br>So I did:
<br>In new (Deb64) change 1000 to 1001 in /etc/passwd and /etc/group against my
username. Knock off the password in /etc/shadow and regenerate.
<br>To some extent this has worked. However now I am beginning to see problems
suggesting this was not such a neat hack!
<br>So parole - the xfce media player - is refusing to play sound files from the old
(and renamed) home but is playing it from the new.
<br>I am guessing this is a user perms and not really a parole issue since parole
plays ok if started as root
<br>So I have basically one specific and one general question:
<br>Specific: Any ideas about how to make parole (gstreamer) work?
<br>General: There may be more such issues in other (sub)systems/apps.
<br>Whats the general way to solve it?
