Re: sound



I had the same problem and so I set these permissions as per the XMMS FAQ 
(www.xmms.org)

$ ls -l /dev/dsp /dev/mixer
crw--w--w-    1 root     audio     14,   3 Apr  4 16:46 /dev/dsp
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     audio     14,   0 Apr  4 16:46 /dev/mixer

That solved my audio problems. Hopefully it will solve yours.
