When using pulse as an ordinary user on FreeBSD, I get an shm_open() error:
$ ogg123 file.ogg
shm.c: shm_open() failed: Permission denied
Assertion failed: (pool), function pa_pstream_new, file
pulsecore/pstream.c, line 221.
Abort trap: 6 (core dumped)
However, when running as root, I get no such problems:
# ogg123 file.ogg
Audio Device: PulseAudio Output
This goes whether or not I run pulseaudio in system-mode or not. And
regardless of the --disable-shm option on pulseaudio (the daemon). Also,
I get the same behaviour on paplay, so this has got nothing to do with
the libao abstracion in ogg123.
Does anyone know how I could fix this? It says permission denied, so
presumably there's some access control mechanism that I could alter?
