Sound problem - /dev/dsp: Permission denied
I finally managed to get some sound working on my computer, however, I can only seem to get WAV files to play. When I try opening up XMMS, I get an error telling me to check my sound card configuration. When I try to play MP3s under Gqmpeg (I think that's what it's called, standard Gnome MPEG player), it says it can't access /dev/dsp.
However, I'm logged into root. I tried to chmod to 777 to see if that might fix the problem, but to know avail, I still get errors. If I try to run /dev/dsp at command prompt, I get a permission denied error there also.
Anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance.
*Edit: I forgot to add the card is an ESS1869.
