Check to see if the "normal" user is in the SOUND group. Or just do with SU:

usermod "name of user" -A sound (without quotes )

I actually manually did that in the /etc/group file and i added the user to the audio group, but the user still can't get sound!Anything else?

Check with "ls" if you have read and write permissions on /dev/dsp , /dev/adsp and /dev/mixer. "should be 660". If you don't ..Do su and

chmod 660 /dev/dsp
chmod 660 /dev/adsp
chmod 660 /dev/mixer
