making kscd make some noise


i really like linux+kde combo for one reason is that the kscd player which autoruns when loading an audio cd reads the cd text even for my own custom compilation cd's but so far i have only seen the counter increase but no sound from it. everything else makes noise. i don't see any preferences to see if some plugins are being used or something, i guess thats bcoz kscd's s'posed to be playing cd's only. since mp3 support in rh9 is missing i atleast want to hear my CD's. each and every program thats there in my linux box is from the installer cd's . i chose "everything" and installed all the 5gb worth of programs that were there on the 3 CD's.

i also wud like to get sound in tuxracer game. the data directory setting and turn sounds on options are correctly set.

finally, it's fun but strange to notice that gnome games are silent in kde but have sounds in gnome and vice versa.

Thanks for all the anticipated help

do you have a sound cable connecting the cdrom to the sound card, or mother board? as far as mp3 support, you can install it for redhat, have a look here

http://rpm.livna.org/

good luck.

Well i clearly remember i had opted not to connect the cdrom to the soundcard via the extra cable that was given so whatever else is usually the norm is what exists in my system...i guess it's the other option which you have mentioned.

I already have downloaded one rpm for xmms from freshrpms.net but thru windows which as per an earlier post was supposed to bring back mp3 support. but i don't know how to install rpms, except those that were already installed via the anaconda installer during the os installation.
but i'll still check out the site.

btw it's nice to see the same person answering every query of mine. thanks PEACEDOG.

you'll need to connect that cable from the cdrom to the sound card or motherboard, whichever option applies. the only package i'm aware of that uses digital audio extraction is the latest xmms. w/that said, to get kcsd to work you'll need the cable connected.

sorry i misunderstood your previous post. so we know the cable is connected, are you trying to play an audio cd or a data cd w/music files on it? if it's a data cd you'll have to mount it first. if it has mp3 files on it, you'll have to install mp3 support as mentioned earlier. if it's just an audio disc w/no mp3 files, then let's have a look at /etc/fstab.

U were asking whether it was an audio cd or a data cd like a mp3 cd. What if it's a Mixed Mode or an Enhanced CD. Something like St. Anger which is an audio CD as well as u can watch a quicktime trailer of the upcoming video game. Or Audio CD's with mp3's also?

i don't know how u do that quote thingy like quoting some lines from my post, that actually makes it easier and faster to refer.

i believe for anything other than an audio cd you'll need to mount it first, the play the mounted directory. for the "quote thingy" you just add
Quote:
in capitol letters, then enter your text, then
also in caps to close the quote. here this will explain it better

i believe changing these

/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,owner,kudzu,ro 0 0

to this

/dev/scd0 /mnt/cdrom udf,iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 0 0
/dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 noauto,user,kudzu,ro 0 0

would allow you to mount them.

changing owner to user in the fstab doesn't help either. It might be helpful if u say what that owner or user refers to?

the owner or user refers to who has permissions on the device. my thought was if you don't have rights to mount the device, then kscd wouldn't play. so by changing the owner(root) to your user, you should now have permissions. in any event lets look at /etc/group.
