I think Slackware ships with "workbone" a console based CD player. I am sure there are others but I can't remember the names. You may have to install them from the net or your installation CD's if you hadn't installled them during the intitial installation.

Workbone is fine, i like the fact that the cd won't stop playing if you quit the program, so there is no need to dedicate a tty for listening to a cd. I also found this page, if anyone cares:
http://linux.tucows.iranscience.net/...s_default.html

What do you think of the GUI players. KsCD is awful, gnomes cd player is better, but i haven't installed gnome, so I use xmms. I used to use workman, but nowdays it is abandoned. I had to alter some things in the source to be able to compile it in fedora Core 2.

If workbone doesn't display properly start it like this
Code:
workbone -a
. I have workbone running on an ancient laptop with external speakers that's become my CD and ogg player (ogg123). Works well!

For a GUI player try gxine, it looks promising.

I have never had a problem with KsCD or GNOME CD player, so I use them quite a lot depending on which distro I am using.
