I did that as well as making every device read/write by the user (bad policy
but...) and I still get a permission denied error from alsamixer and amixer.
Of course they don't say what permission is denied on. Correction I just
looked and alsamixer says "function snd_ctl_open failed on default.
permission denied". It is debian.
