I posted here a couple of weeks ago because I could not get sound to work - I was testing my sound card as the user. I could however play mpeg files and got sound out of all of my games so I didn't worry about it too much
recently I logged in as root to do a few things and lo and behold I had sound. I have since confirmed that .wav files can only be heard using su.
How can I fix this?
I am running RedHat 7.2
