arts Server Problem - only running as root

Hi List,

i got a problem ;-).

After installation of the necessary packages for a soundsystem, logging in
as nonroot user i always get the following error message:

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device: default can't be opened for playback (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

Am I logging in to KDE as root everything works perfectly:

the dev /dev/snd has the following rights set:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     audio          16 Jul 19 00:13 snd ->
crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   6 Jul 19 00:13 sndstat

the nonroot user is in the group audio (linuxconf).

Where is the problem? 

Im running Debian Woody.
