what sound server are you using? gnome=esd kde=arts also could be alsa (think that does servery stuff as well as drivers) or flat oss or similar. if it's esd or such then it should have a helper app tyo control access to it, eg. esdctl
Note: This is much easier if you're using devfs for you /dev since you won't get inundated with thousands of entries for devices that don't exists... you'll only get the ones that do (hopefully). Eg: /dev/hd* would normally show all the possible combinations (hdaX hdbX hdcX, etc), whereas with devfs you'll only be given the ones that are actually on your system!
Ok This is Weird but when i set the perms g+rw and o+rw on /dev/audio*, /dev/dsp*, /dev/mixer* and /dev/sequencer* and i take the machine down for reboot the permissions are lost and i have to reset them.
Theres obvisiously a way to have them set on boot??
