To make everything work on my system (RH6.2, heavily upgraded), I had to
hit /dev/mixer* /dev/midi* /dev/dsp* and /dev/audio* - the astericks are
there because there were more than one of each of these (ie, /dev/mixer0,
I changed my persmissions to 777 on all of those files - although the RIGHT
way (thinking security) to do it is probably to 'chown' the files to a
group (users, maybe) then make sure that all your non-root users have that
group as part of their supplemental groups (use 'usermod' or 'userconf').
On my single user system, I just got lazy ;-)
