Unhappy cdrom audio play as user


tried following direxns in other posts but can't get audio cds to play in either cdrom. get error about permissions/ or no disk in drive. Putting disk in either drive and pressing eject gets no axn. Can play audio cds as root. Tried usermod -G cdrom username as su and fstab has ro, user for both cdroms. Should user be users in fstab? Tried both. Reboot 2X -after usermod command-did not alter result. cdplayer and kscd have /dev/cdrom as default player. And Control Panel has autodetect cdrom. Changing that to /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdrom1 makes no diff. Thanx for responses.

/dev/cdrom is a link so the permissions will be meaningless. The permissions you need to be changing are for the actual drive. (/dev/hd?).

If /dev/cdrom is valid then do ls -l on whatever it points to.

hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi was used during install. hdc=dev/cdrom and hdd=dev/cdrom1. Made link from sr0 to dev/ cdrom and from sr1 to dev/cdrom1. ls -L /dev/cdrom gets /dev/cdrom at terminal. etc/group has my name in cdrom group. etc/fstab has noauto,user for cdrom and cdrom1. Tried' users ' in fstab but same breaking-glass sound when start kde as user. Dont recall this problem with 9.1 and 10.. Thanx

Try this:

1. rm /dev/cdrom
2. ln -s /dev/cdrom /dev/hdc
3. chgrp users /dev/cdrom
4. Put in an audio cd and attempt to play with xmms.

If that does not work:

1. vi lilo.conf and remove the hdc=ide-scsi hdd=ide-scsi
2. esc, :wq and then type lilo
3. Put in an audio cd and attempt to play with xmms.

cd audio as user

tried rm /dev/cdrom then ln -s step gives hdc file doesn't exist; and chgrp users /dev/cdrom get no such file error. Reboot gives same "breaking-glass". Commented out hdc=ide-scsi and hdd=ide-scsi. But same "breaking glass" error. Will try reboot 2x.

When you commented out the hdc=ide-scsi, did you remember to re-run lilo?

cd audio problem

I guess I messed something up because received same error as root. Re-installed. Now have cd music as root. Did not put ide-scsi comment in lilo. Then let's see what happens when trying to record! If I get the nerve will try 2.6 kernel. Thanx for assist.

Sounds silly, but just to make sure, did you add yourself to the "cdrom" group?

cd music as audio

yes to cdrom group and to disk,audio,wheel,games,video groups. Think there was a bug in install. After re-install w/o gnome, cd player(from gnome) doesnt show up in kde menu but kscd does. And after some reboots there is cd music as user. Even kde desktop looks different. Seems some parts of gnome desktop were showing up in the previous kde desktops with full install. Very frustrating to say the least. Well now I know what groups to add my user to and to make links and edit fstab Thanx.
