Fedora 8 - No sound from music CDs


When I recently installed some updates to my Fedora 8 installation I was no longer able to play music CDs. I get sounds from music and videos played on the web, and all normal computer sounds such as "you have mail", etc, but nothing from music CDs. When I tried to play a CD the player gave me mount and permissions error. I serched this and other forums and was led to make some additions to /etc/fstab and change the permissions for my CD-RW drive (/dev/scd0) and my DVD-RW drive (/dev/scd1) to 777. Now KsCD plays the tracks and picks up all the CDDB info from the CDs but there is no sound.

Here's my /etc/fstab:

LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults 1 2
devpts /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620 0 0
tmpfs /dev/shm tmpfs defaults 0 0
proc /proc proc defaults 0 0
sysfs /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
/dev/sda7 /mnt/win vfat uid=500 0 0
/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol01 swap swap defaults 0 0
/dev/scd0 /media/cdrom auto noauto,user,exec,rw 0 0
/dev/scd1 /media/cdrom auto noauto,user,exec,rw 0 0

Any help and/or suggestions would be appreciated.

just curious, did you open up your box and see the cord that connects the CD-ROM Drive and motherboard (sound card) still connected? If it is still connected, what software are you using to place CD music? Are you using optical sound?

Sorry, I should have mentioned that I dual boot with XP. Both the CDRW and DVDRW drives are working just fine under XP.

Fedora 8 is using a whole new audio mixer, probably you hear that before, but what can happen is that this mixer is closing input channels. So was my mic in closed and needed to be opened. It is possible that for some reason your audio input was closed if that is for some reason a channel on your audio card.

I wasn't aware of the new mixer. Can you tell me how to check to see if a channel is closed?

In Fedora 8, the sound is normally controlled by PulseAudio. The following link is about how to setup the PulseAudio. It also includes links about some graphical interface, if you did not install them.

Hope this helps you.
