Mpg321 "unable to create IPC Semaphore" when not root

Hi, I get this error when I try playing Mp3s without root priviliges in Mpg321

@Linux:/user/media/music> mpg321 * -z
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:789snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to create IPC semaphore
No default libao driver available.

Anyone have a resolution for this?

suse 9.3 had two versions-- you know, one fixed alota sound problems with first release..

It sort of fixed itself! I don't know if it crapped out because I was logged in as root earlier, when I used it. Now it works fine.

Thanks a lot though
