alsa work with root or sudo but not user
Running debian 3.1, testing.
Probably has something to do with the screwed-up way alsa mutes everything by default.
as root, this works fine.
# mpg123 audiofile.mp3
or, as user, this works fine,
$ sudo mpg123 audiofile.mp3
but, as user, this does not work,
$ mpg123 audiofile.mp3
I've tried sudo alsamixer, and it looks like practically everything is set to off, but I don't know how to turn it on.
