OS is Fedora Core 1
Hardware is ATI TV Wonder VE
Software is tvtime 0.9.12
The Goal: To allow all the users of the machine (myself and two other members of the household) to watch tv without having to a) be root, or b) execute a separate command after tvtime exits to kill the audio.
(Snipped) Contents of /etc/modules.conf:
options bttv card=64
options tuner type=2
post-install bttv insmod tuner
post-remove bttv /sbin/rmmod -r bttv
And have implemented a similar fix. This is the contents of the /usr/bin/run-tvtime file:
/sbin/modprobe -r bttv
The problem is that I dont want to run the tvtime app as root, and when I run it as a regular user, I get issues with modprobe. The run-tvtime script outputs on exit:
Thank you for using tvtime.
bttv: Operation not permitted
bttv: Device or resource busy
So the question is: how do I kill the audio as a non-root user?
