I have had to fix such problems with sound by hand editing:
If this is the problem, this is the fix:
Make a group (if you don't already have one): "camera", give it a 3
digit group number, and make all users that are allowed to use the
camera a member of that group. You can use: "KUser" to do this.
Edit this line of the file:
<console> 0600 <camera> 0600 root
Change it to:
<console> 0660 <camera> 0660 root.camera
hope this works.
