no music :-(

RedHat detected my soundcard as a:
Vendor: Ensonique
Model: ES1371 [AudioPCI-97]
Module: es1371

It plays the test sound perfectly, and even Gaim default sounds work perfectly.

But, when I try to play an audio CD via xmms, grip, gnome-cd and probably any other audio doesn't play any sounds at all. I have not the slightest idea of what could be a n3wb and ive only been usin linux for about 2 week's worth of experience.

(sorry i posted this under general too...but its really a software problem)

check inside your case and make sure there is a CD-audio cable running from your cd drive to your soundcard (or motherboard if its on-board sound)

If not, install one and all will be well.

yes definately check that. there's some other things to check also that i posted on your other same post.

yeah, it's generally a good idea to not double post the same topic. just request a mod to move your post to the right forum.

Or, if you want to listen to CDs with XMMS, you can download a plugin that allows you to extract the audio data through the IDE/SCSI cable. Just have a look around at at their input plugins.
