This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Okay I have a
Model:Technologies VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller
Module: is snd-via82xx
I play the test sound and it works perfectly but I can't hear any of my Cds play. I ust the generic cd player, whatever came preinstalled with FC3. I donwloaded xmms but i can't figure out how to find the cd to make it play. Anyway what should I do?
I tried Alsamixer in the terminal and turned the volume up on everything and then unmuted everything. Nothing. I don't know if that was good or bad but either way it still doesn't work.
If you do send some help be specfic b/c I am pretty new to this.,
Thank you so much to whoever responds!!
and see what other device its pointing to ( if this is IDE, probably /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd).
if that looks ok, then in a console do:
su -c gnome-cd
and give your root password to run it as root and see if it works. If it works as root, you have a permissions problem that we'll have to fix. If it still will not work then we'll have to look into your /dev folder and dmesg and such but for now try the above method.
ls -l /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Jan 23 14:32 /dev/cdrom -> hdc
seems normal to me
su -c gnome-cd
GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
The cd-rom player popped up and it played but with no sound, still.
hmm, the only thing i can think of is the either the cd audio cable is not connected or the cd channel is muted. Other than that, I think you pretty much have covered everything else ( since it is indeed playing the cd).
