hello, i have installed slackware 9.0 a few days ago, and don't really understand how a few things work. I may have read something about this but missed the point, or not have understood.
I have a ricoh ide cdrw, which I read in the HOWTO is supported with scsi emulation, I appened hde=ide-scsi during the slackware install to /etc/lilo.conf, and from looking at other posts in this forum my /etc/fstab is correct also.
the problem is, to access this drive now it is device sr0 I must su to root.
example: for playing audio cds, xmms won't play at all - even when I tell it to use device /dev/sr0. However gnome-cd will, if im loged in as root. I can mount data-cd's fine also.
any help is appreciated
