drive error

I think this is a permissions problem but i cant seem to fix it.

Here it is.

when i try to run gnome-cd as a normal user i get an error which says drive-error


when i run gnome-cd under root it plays fine.

here is my fstab for the cdrom

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 1 1

also when i start the xterminal i get a weird erro saying with /dev/mixer but as root i can play all the to my hearts content.

any help would be greatly appreaciated

thanx in advance

Well, for your mixer, to solve that problem (as root):

chmod 660 /dev/mixer

and make sure your user is part of the "root" and "users" group. Some find this to be a security risk, but I dont think so.

And on this:

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 1 1

why is that 1 1? I've always used 0 0.

But try changing it to "auto", instead of noauto.

I think i have a bigger problem here is the error that I get when i start up my x server

mixer device /dev/mixer has neither volume nor pcm channels

what does this mean I have the nvidia nforce chipset ive install the drivers and they installed without too much trouble.

Im running slackware 9.0
