[ezsurf@NECNote ~]$ N: main.c: Called SUID root and real-time/high-priority scheduling was requested in the configuration. However, we lack the necessary priviliges:
N: main.c: We are not in group 'pulse-rt' and PolicyKit refuse to grant us priviliges. Dropping SUID again.
N: main.c: For enabling real-time scheduling please acquire the appropriate PolicyKit priviliges, or become a member of 'pulse-rt', or increase the RLIMIT_NICE/RLIMIT_RTPRIO resource limits for this user.

Is the user a member of the 'Audio' group? Have you checked with a mixer to make sure the volume is turned up? Have you tried changing from ICH8 HD Audio to alsa or OSS to see if it makes a difference? Just some thoughts!
