I didn't resolve the problem- I did something else instead. I will have to come back to this when I have time. I will try to remember to update this thread if I have any news. Thanks again to all.

I have noticed your post in the past! Several people have asked you to not use t
he aol speak. I now am asking you to not use it.

Just a note, a lot of people from foreign countries (myself included) som
etimes don't speak English so well. It's easy to think someone is aol-speaking w
hen maybe their English isn't so good. We should all try to write clearly but no
t everyone can write on the same level.
ok if lq people are not satisfied with that(either it is aol or yahoo), then i w
ill.
then you have to forget about the grammer, spelling etc...
earlier i thought some are also using the same language, shortwords.

this lq(linuxqu..) is also a short form

not many, that was not the way to correct a guy, now i
can understand i will change my language

for me posting in lq was somewhat similar to a chatting(i rarely use yahoo-messen
ger, but these shortcuts i learned from lq only ). i thought in lq community, the only language is linux. we are not following any rule.

If spelling is the problem, then use the spell check feature of LQ during the reply session.
i use the quick reply mode only (that was a great idea)
Quote:
To use the aol speak makes the reading for understanding difficult.
i dont think that "Randux" had some problem in understanding my post. also in that post i only used "u" insteas of "you" and "tht" for "that". these makes things easy.
also if u can understand the bash scripts why problem in reading this??

Note: i dont know what an aol means(america online) and what it is using for?
i dont want to know that, also i learned this language from typing in lq

i am stopping the discussion on this issue here(i dont want it to be a junk thread)anyway i will consider that and in my future threads you can see that.

I didn't resolve the problem-
are you getting error message when you run #cdrecord -scanbus? if so append lilo.
after appending lilo( it is a 2min job) and rebooting check wether u can "read" cds, if not, "you haev to create a simlink" (that we will discuss if you get problem)
Note: dont go for compiling 2.6 for resolving this issu

best of luck

For anybody who is having problems, I installed the xcdroast package from the extras directory in the Slackware installation. It seems to be a nice app and seems to be working ok.

I'd also suggest you to take a look at bashburn.

Thanks, I looked at that and it couldn't discover my cd drive. I gave up after playing around with it for an hour or so. I had better luck with xcdroast.

Well, unlike spoken language, these forums are all text so it's not that difficult to actually learn the language as you go along. Sloth is practically the only reason for screwing up such basic parts of the English language. If someone is smart enough to figure out that they need to use a second-person pronoun, then they're smart enough to know how to spell it. Additionally, the more people take the lazy way out and type in 'idjit', the harder it becomes for non-native speakers to learn the language. Gods forbid they actually attempt to get a job somewhere using structures like that.
