Sound Card won't play cd's


Ok, this is the output from /sbin/lspci for the audio card.....
00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801BA/BAM AC'97 Audio (rev 04)

Just installed redhat 9, kernel 2.4.20-8
I've tried going to system settings --> sound card detection (type in root password), click to test sound and i can hear it on my speakers.
After that i put in the cd and it recognizes the cd, i see the clock run but no sound.
I've also tried aumix -v100,100
aumix -c100,100
for the volume and nothing.
Also tried chmod 777 /dev/cdrom and still no luck.

/var/log/messages has:

Aug 18 13:24:41 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-service-1-0
Aug 18 13:27:46 localhost modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module sound-slot-1

I'm new at this, thanks......

For cd-playing to work using the traditional playing interface, audio output has to be connected to your soundcard's cd in (with a cable, regulary delivered with your cd drive).

Alternatively you can use something like xmms-cdread to read cd music as data and play it.

Ok, i installed the rpm for the xmms-cdread and now i get this error when i try to play the cd:
Please check that:
1. You have the correct output plugin selected
2. No other programs is blocking the soundcard
3. Your soundcard is configured properly

Thanks for your help.....

Can you play anything with your soundcard?
eg. does the command
Code:
cat /boot/vmlinuz-`uname -r` > /dev/dsp
give you some noise out?
(any file would do, but playing out the kernel is just fun)

I get some static, is that it?
I hit ctrl + z cause it wouldn't stop.
I also played files from /usr/share/sounds

Thanks

ok. And you get the sound out as same user as you tried to run xmms?

If so, check the output plugin of xmms. OSS should be a safe bet. Also if there are some esd or arts running, you could try to kill them first.

I can listen to the kernel with my user.
I can't run xmms with my user, only with root

That mcop seems to be related to arts. Drop arts and try again.

killall arts
or killall artsd
or killall whatever is the name of the process running there (I don't remember, because I don't use). "ps -fA" gives a full listing of processes running.
