xmms




guys I've just been through the whole thing, the mounting, the agony. anyway, the only thing I had to do was go to xmms options -> preferences -> chose cd audio player -> configure -> mine was setup incorrectly and read /dev/cdrom as the device directory when it should have been /dev/hdc.

anyway I hope this helps.

I have a Compaq Presario 5000 series and mine also has some issues with the CDROM reading, ejecting, music playing. I can easily play mp3s from my hard drive but my CDROM keeps having access errors and such. How can this be fixed? This has been a real pain since my linux upgrades and extra apps are on a CD (which cannot be read).

I have mandrake 8.1 and this is what my fstab file looks like for the cdrom.

/dev/hdc /mnt/cdrom auto user,iocharset=iso8859-1,umask=0,exec,codepage=850,ro,noauto 0 0

I hope this helps.

same here... 5304 (bargin basement compaq), My CDROM (Drive D under Win98, /dev/hdb1 under slack) won't mount. I get door open errors, and my cd burner isn't ever recgonized. Once in a great while, 1 in 15 boots my cdrom will mount. and let me tell you that's a glorious time indeed. But the audio doesn't work, and well, it's a general pain in the rear. So, does anyone have ANY ideas to fix any of our CD problems, besides from getting a different computer...

Talking CD Music Problems

I finally figured out my music problems so I thought I'd go ahead and post the reply for all. I'm using Mandrake 8.1 KDE desktop on an IBM a21e Thinkpad. I had a problem playing music CD's using the CDPlayer in KDE. The CD Player still crashes and won't configure properly but I did find a solution using XMMS. To configure XMMS properly I first had to open my /etc/fstab file to find out what my cdrom was mounted to, what I pretty much got was:

[snip]
dev/hdb /mnt/cdrom
[end snip]

So armed with this information I started XMMS and went to Options->Preferences -> CD Audio -> Configure and set the device to /dev/hdb (as is specified in the fstab file) and the Directory to /mnt/cdrom/. Then I went to Play -> Directory -> /mnt/cdrom and I saw all the tracks on my music CD. Hope this helps some. Pls note that I had to alter my /etc/modules.conf file to update the alsa settings to:

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias char-major-14 soundcore
alias snd-card-0 snd-card-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

Good luck all.
