I'm using LFS with package users and having problems setting
I want to play videos in mplayer.
#usermod -G audio,video mplayer
#chmod u+s $(which mplayer)
mplayer belongs to user mplayer and group mplayer
But it's not working.
How ever if I do
#chown :audio $(which mplayer)
it can play songs. It works even if sgid or suid bits are not set. But
this way I have access to only either audio or video. Can't have both.
This is the mess without needing disk user, to access files on mounted
Is there any other way to do this than suid to root?
