I am having a strange problem with playing music cds. The cd seems to play, cddb does the lookup and recognizes the tracks, but no sound comes out. It worked with Winblows but not after installing Suse so I know the hardware is Ok.
First, I figured out that Suse 10 was using /dev/sr1 for media. That was linked to my DVDRW, which I didn't like, so I relinked it to my DVD Rom.
ln -s /dev/sr0 cdrom
Installed all the Packman packages for multimedia, (xine, lame, libdvdcss, kaffeine, etc...etc...)
I configured GRip and I can convert my music cds to mp3 and play them from my hard drive with no problem.
Kscd acts like it's playing the tracks, cddb lookup works and soforth, but there is no sound.
Xmms, real player 10, and amarok react the same way.
Another strange thing is that there are no CD devices when looking at Kmix, AlsaMix, or any other mixer.
When I try to adjust the sound settings for my card with Yast, it says there are no configurable modules for this device with the exception of master volume. ??? weird!
Chances are that you will need to enable 'cd audio extraction' in kscd/xmms etc. I mention those two apps because I know that both can do this. Other than that add an analog cable from the back of the drive to the mobo/sound card.
