cdrom reads: cannot fine file or folder not on konsole.
First off I am not technical at all so the conversation will have to be very basic.
The cdrom and burn had been working fine until about a a week or two ago. Now there is a system error cdrom/mnt cannot find file or folder. I went onto the konsole and there didn't seem to be anything there either. So wondering what I need to do to get things going again with the cd.
Secondly we are also having trouble with our sound system. It worked only briefly. I can't give anymore info than that because I am don't sure of the problem. As I said not very computer savvy.
Our system is Kanotics 32 bit edition.

Reason: miss spelled
I think we are near capacity on memory so I am in the process of off loading some of my photo files
and I have had some error messages lately so wondering if that could be part of the problem low memory and errors -these errors include
dynamic Mmap ran out of room
error o while processing python-libuser new version
problem with merge list
the package lists or status file could not be passes or opened
error occured while loading could not read/audiocd:/
sorry it sounds like a lot of things to deal with. The fella who set us up with the system has moved away and I am not sure who else in town knows the linux system.
So any advise would be great and I will continue to try to make room on the computer by downloading folders on to the memory stick.
Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on
/dev/hda1 5763616 5359536 111300 98% /
tmpfs 127564 0 127564 0% /dev/shm
/dev/hda2 2084356 1527720 556636 74% /mnt/hda2
Yes, it seems your filesystem is nearly full! your / (root partition) is 98% full, /dev/shm is a "pseudo" filesystem and doesn't matter, /mnt/hda2 is 74% full. /dev/hda2 is separate from your root partition and you can safely move files from /home/rutherford into /mnt/hda2 by using the "mv" command or by using a filemanager (like windows explorer). This *might* also cure the mmap problem, but I think mmap stands for "memory map" or something... not too sure... try moving some files and freeing up some space and see what happens!
It looks like you have an Ensoniq 5880 AudioPCI sound card. I have one too, they are very common. Try running "alsamixer", if you can see some sliders, move them with your arrow keys, use "m" key to mute/unmute a channel, see if you can get any sound to play. If not, could you post the output of this command for me:
lsmod | grep snd
This should tell me if you have your sound drivers loaded. "lsmod" on it's own gives you a list of all the "kernel modules" loaded, most of these are drivers for your hardware. I just need the ones with "snd" in them, hence "grep snd" and the "|" pipes the result of "lsmod" through to the "grep snd" command.

Hmmmmm.... not familiar with kanotix, sorry! But, hey! Linux is Linux! it's all the same things arranged differently.
Once you have safely backed up all your stuff you might want to try another distro, ubuntu is great for people who just want to use their computer without knowing EVERYTHING!
I have cleared some space off the computer and the cdrom will work for a cd of photos but will not read a music cd.
Good news then. If you can read data off it then all is okay. The music cd part is done in hardware by your cd drive, it probably will play music cd's in xine or any cd player program. The only reason it might not is if you have the sound turned down on the volume control for cd's, check your mixer settings. If it worked before I'm sure it's okay, try all the sliders while a cd is playing. A music cd is different from all other data formats, the cd drive usually has an audio lead connected directly from the cd drive to an input on your sound card.
You cannot mount an audio cd, it will be read directly by a cd player program so the /mnt/cdrom thing is not important here.
I need more information on the keyboard issue, could you post the output of this command please:
dmesg | less
'dmesg' prints out any boot-time messages, the 'less' command allows you to use the up/down arrow keys to scroll through the messages. I don't need all of it, just the error messages. If it looks too confusing and you are not sure what is an error and what is not then just post the whole output.
