Hello List

   My 'mplayer' can't open the audio (or/and dsp) device when I run it like
user.  I added the user in the audio group (in file /etc/group), also the
'xmms' and other audio applications haven't problem with audio devices
like simple user. But 'mplayer' only can open this device like root.
  Any idea why it is happen??
 By the way, I'm using Debian woody and the device intel i810 together
with the NAS audio server.
   Thank you.
