Making sound work for users
I just managed to make me system play mp3's - I know that I still have the permission problem - I just would like to know how I could do it.
One way would be giving everybody the right to /dev/dsp and /dev/mixer but I sort of dislike this - I have added a group called audio and all users belong to this one, root as well. So is there another way instead using chmod 666?

well if only audio group needs access then you could use 660

as long as the dev files are owned by the audio group

chown owner:group /dev/???
or chown :group /dev/???

chown :audio /dev/dsp
chmod 660 /dev/dsp
