Unhappy SuSe 9.2 sound doesn't work unless Root


After a long hiatus I decided to try out SuSE 9.2.

The only problem I have is with sound. I can't get any sound unless I am logged in as root. I've checked sound settings using YaST and kcontrol both, and everything seems to be okay for the normal user. This smells like a permissions problem but I don't know where to start. Can anyone help me out? I'm in newbie mode so I apologize in advance.

The soundcard is an i810 (detected fine).

Thanks!

Check the permissions on /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer. They should both be 666, if not
Code:
chmod 666 /dev/dsp
chmod 666 /dev/mixer
That may not be the source of the problem but it's one thing to check -- J.W.
