a question regarding permissions with my sound. I've searched for this and haven't found anything specific to my problem. Whenever I try to play mp3 files with XMMS, I get the "Couldn't open audio" dialogue box. Similarly, with mplayer or mpg123 from the console, I get a "/dev/dsp: Permission denied" error message.
If I su and do a "chmod 660 /dev/dsp*" and then exit, all sound playback works fine. However, if I then logout and login again as a "normal" (i.e. non-root) user, the errors are back. Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way I can make the 660 permission on /dev/dsp permanent so I don't have to issue the chmod every time I want to listen to my music?
Oh, I'm running Mandrake Official 10.0 with KDE as my gui. Can anyone help me?
