[MPlayer-users] Trouble running mplayer as user

I am very persistent in using linux but have run into a brick
wall trying to figure out what is wrong with how I installed
Mplayer. I use Fedora Core1 in combination with Mozilla 1.4.1,
and installed the latest rpms for mplayer:


As well as the plugin:

I installed mencoder, mplayer-common and mplayer-gui using
rpm-Uvh with root privileges

The problems I'm having are :
1) Cannot run gmplayer as a user.
2) I can run it as root but with no sound at all

Below I included the log results:

Thank you for any help that you can provide me.
