I'm running Slackware 10.0 and can't get it to recognize music CDs. I've tried using cdplay as suggested in Rute, but that's not a recognized command. I've also tried going into KDE and using that CD player (don't remember the name) and it just reports an error with the drive. I can use the drive for data CDs, and the music CDs play fine in Win98, that tells me that the drive itself is not the issue.
Any suggestions as to what to look for? Since I'm using this mainly as a training system, I want to use CLI as much as possible, so any suggestions for command line CD players?
you don't mount Music cds like data cds, just run your preferred cd player app. Also you need the audio cable that plugs into your cd drive and into your sound card, this is easier than to set up software to route the data to the sound card, without more info I can't tell you much else
Unfortunately, the KDE player just says "drive error" nothing else. I initially tried mounting the CD, but when it errored out with a file system error, I figured it wouldn't be mounted. I don't know if the internal audio cable is connected or not, I put this system together at least 5 years ago and it's only been open to put in new hard drives. I didn't notice if it was there or not, I'll check that out.
I'll grab madplayer and see if that gives me a better error message. I also pulled up the KsCD documentation to see if anything there helps.
