Could part of YOUR problem be YOUR atitude?

BYA, It never hurts to cross post to a mailing list devoted
to the Distro you use. And of course read the user manuals
on the Distros web site.

Actually if you do a search on Ac97, it turns up many results here as this is asked all the time. If you haven't done so already, might want to browse thru these and see if it answers any of your questions you may have.

Lets be nice pickledbeans.

ok then, what errors do you get and are you root or regular user trying to play cd's ??

Also you can possibly try doing this:

chmod 666 /dev/dsp
chmod 666 /dev/mixer

Can't think of any others that might need changing as well, this should change the default permissions so all users have read and execute permissions.
