Audio in Slackware
I want to know why I can't play any cd when I am using Slackware, I also want to know what kind of program can I use to download mp3 in Linux, such as Kazaa

First of all, what apps are you using to try to play CDs? Second, do you have an audio cable running from the back of the CD-ROM to the audio input on your soundcard?

mP3 and Cds don't play
I want to know how to make my music Cds play on Slackware

OK, well I can't help you unless you answer my questions. I'm not psychic, so just repeating that you want to be able to play the CDs isn't going to help any.

There are plenty of programs that can play cds and mp3s. Does your sound work? Find a sound file and try it.

try to see if you can play sounds while root... if you can, you have to set write permissions on /dev/dsp so that normal users can use it as well... (man chmod)
if you can.t, then maybe your kernel doesn.t support your soundcard yet; compile a new kernal (there.s a good guide for that somewhere here)

and maybe you can google for linux filesharing programs (d.uh...)

Ok: :scratch:
Try this:
1- Logon as root
2- from the command line enter the following:
$chmod 666 /dev/dsp* /dev/mixer*

If this doesn't help, then you'll need to recompile the kernel with the modules for your sound card

Hope this helps.:study:
