Am a limux newbie. using slackware. just got gnome running few days back(had problems running x). however there seems to be a problem with the sound though. some audio error message comes up in the startup screen and it doesnt load the audio. also cannot play audio CDs(ofcourse!!)
If you want to be able to hear audio as a user you need to be in the audio group. You can use kuser in kde or gnomes graphical user tool to put yourself in the audio group. Also put youself in these groups video,floppy,mem,kmem,cdrom.disk. That will make some things easier to access as a user.
You do not need to mount audio CDs. As for "mp3 CDs", I assume you mean you just have .mp3 files on a normal CD-R/CD-RW as a data disk? What kind of errors are you getting when you try to mount one of those?
