ioctl cdrommsf


I first made sure that I had the latest cdtool from debian. I tried cdplay and got "ioctl cdrommsf". Reading the man page on ioctl didn't help. What does this error mean?

i think that's just a basic Input/output error
first always have to tell people to make sure the external source cd playback device in alsa is not muted
and the volume is up on that device
for me the command to look at it would be
amixer get CD
see man amixer
as a diagnostic thing
try xmms with the cd audio player input plugin and see if it works and post back results

ioctl cdrommsf (follow-up)

I didn't find a man page or info on amixer.
However:
epjh@EMH:~$ amixer get CD
Simple mixer control 'CD',0
Capabilities: pvolume pswitch pswitch-joined cswitch cswitch-joined cswitch-exclusive
Capture exclusive group: 0
Playback channels: Front Left - Front Right
Capture channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 31
Front Left: Playback 0 [0%] [off] Capture [off]
Front Right: Playback 0 [0%] [off] Capture [off]

For xmms:
epjh@EMH:~$ xmms

** CRITICAL **: Unable to open display
Message: device: default
