"A few users reported that after upgrading from Fedora 16 their /etc/pam.d/* configuration files did not reference the module. As a result, the user login sessions are not properly tracked by the systemd-logind daemon and the users are not granted access to sound and other devices. It is unclear what the exact conditions for the wrong PAM configuration to occur are. The problem does not seem to be easily reproduced. To fix the problem, run authconfig --updateall which will correct the PAM configuration files."

If you didn't upgrade from a previous version of Fedora, please explain. And please list your complete system specs. BTW, you'd probably get a more complete answer in the Linux forum.

Are these speakers USB speakers (do they show up in lsusb) or do they use a 3.5mm jack to your sound card?

They use a 3.5mm jack to the sound card. I don't see any mention of them in lsusb.
