xmms doesn 't start

I got the same problem.
When I want to start xmms from the commandline ("xmms -p file.mp3") it
doesn't work.
When I switch to the visual mode, start a mp3-file with xmms (and stop
it again), it works.
Now, when I go back to the text-mode, and do the same thing again
("xmms -p file.mp3"), it works (only for "root")!
How can I start a mp3-file after a reboot without going to the visual

I also want to run xmms by the web.
I have a play.php with a line "exec("xmms -p file.mp3")". When I run
it trough php, on the commandline, ("php play.php") it works. When I
switch to another user it doesn't work. It also doesn't work through
the internet.
Someone has an idea?

I run Suse 9.0 Pro (php, mysql, apache)

Thanks in advance,
