Sound issues

Hello.  I'm running Arch .4 on a PIII 833 with 192 megs of RAM.  My sound card is a SB Live.

PROBLEM: I can't get sound to work for regular users.

I put "alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1" in modules.conf.

I put "modprobe emu10k1" in rc.local.

If I log in as root, all is well, but if, for instance, I try to play a video in mplayer as a normal user, I'm notified of a permissions error on /dev/rtc and /dev/sound/dsp.

I tried (as root):

chmod 660 /dev/sound/dsp
chmod 660 /dev/rtc

Still no luck.

What newbie mistake am I making?

(Sorry for any mistakes in my post, I'm doing this from memory, but I tried to get all the paths and stuff correct.)

Thanks in advance for any bit o' help.

And thanks to ody for the new forum.  I hope to put it to EXTENSIVE use.  LOL

Re: Sound issues

real time clock does not relate to soud i think
try add rc.local
chmod 666 /dev/sound/dsp
chmod 666 /dev/sound/mixer
a lsmod and see if emu10k1 is there if not insmod emu10k1
it worked for me but i have seen something in the forun like
the ( correct way to resolve that something related to the dev fs
and if im not correct im sorry for my reply
