No sound in user accounts

Post by darkroxy » Fri Feb 01, 2008 22:19

Hi.

I have just installed Sabayon Professional 1.1 on a machine that was running Sabayon 3.4.

On sign in, it gives me the following message:

Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (Permission denied)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.

I have tried su - ing to root and running

gpasswd -a your_user_name audio

with no luck.

Any ideas?
