Creating Audio CD with Gnometoaster


I have Redhat 8.0 and I have a SAMSUNG cd-writer using it with GnomeToaster.Yesterday I tried to create an Audio CD from my mp3 collection....The GnomeToaster needed the mpg123 plugin which I downloaded and installed.

Fine.Then I started the writing process of the Audio compilation...the writing finished and I the tested the cd and I got no sound.

The cd is an AUdio cd but there's no sound....

I thought the problem might be that I am using a module (cs4232) for the crystal Audio card.

Please Help.

Your profile says Red Hat 9.0, your post states Red Hat 8.0

Red Hat doesn't support mp3 out of the box.

Can you get it to work using the command line?
