Might wanna do a "chmod ugo+r /dev/dsp*

The same might hold for the other sound devices. From the print out only the
root and audio groups have read access. Depending on the protocol Cedega
uses, it might help to give the "o" (other) read access. Also check the
dmesg print out after starting Cedega.
