Sound Problem

As root, my sound works fine. When I log into a user account, sound doesn't work. I'm using RH7.2.
Does anyone know what I can do to fix this problem.

Thanks,

    I *guess* you might not have set up write permissions for the users. Try this: 'chmod a+rwx /dev/dsp', then with /dev/mixer, /dev/sequencer and anything else that is related. I guess you've got the idea. Playing sound writes to /dev/dsp and related things, and they usually does not have worldwritable permissions.
