Hi

Normally, when you start X and login, the system should chown the mixer 
devices for you.  For some reason it doesn't.

A workaround is to log on as root, then type the following instructions:

cd /dev
chown user:user -R audio mixer snd adsp amidi dmmidi dsp midi 

And then login as the user.

Replace user with your username
