Is it possible to burn a music cd in Slackware 9.1?

Or you could try k3b. Thats the one that I use, but both are equally good from what I've heard. Good luck!

k3b is a little more user friendly than xcdroast. either of the two work fine.

It's hard to beat the command line tools. The gui front ends just get in the way of all the available options of the tools of the command line. Plus, you get to see all the error messages and post them if something doesn't work like you think it should.

How about CD copying, ripping and burning? I can't figure it out.
# CD burning copying ripping info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:
cdrecord -scanbus

k3b can do mp3 to audio CD on the fly, plus it's a bit easier to drag and drop if you have hundreds of files to pick from.
