playing music cds

Hello All:

I posted regarding this a while back, but was so busy I couldn't pursue it, even though the moderator gave me a serious "boche".

So, can anyone tell me or direct me to where I can find out how to load a music cdrom. I'm using RH 7.3, and I have a regular cdrom drive recognized by the system.

Looking forward to relevant replies.

Well, the fastest way to get a response would be a search This topic is covered actually very well, quite often, and I think broken down enough for most of the average newbies to comprehend it (although I am very aware there are threads that go way over our heads at times ).

The next fastest way is to keep reading:

Do what it takes (satisfy the dependencies, install from source or whatever) to get Grip installed ( ). Then, ensure you have an actual audio cable running from your CDROM drive to the sound card and that your sound card works in Linux. The audio cable is necessary (for a short while longer and there are currently a few exceptions, however this is the "standard" and we can vary later) as Linux (currently) does not handle DAE (Digital Audio Extraction - The process of transferring audio via the IDE cables) via a standard kernel.

Afterwards, plop in your favorite AudioCD, bring up grip, click play and have fun. Ensure your volumes aren't muted, and that your speakers are on
