Preserving Permissions

This is probably a real basic question but for some reason /dev/dsp and anything in either /dev/snd or /dev/sound have their permissions change and a normal user cannot use them. How can I change them to 0666 at boot?

Add them to your rc.local script or any other startup script to include the chmod changes you'd like..

Actually if i remeber correctly thoes devices get added to the audio group and you can just add your user to that group.

or maybe i have something on my system that i added so that udev does that ?
