the cd I tried was a burned audio cd. I tried a data cd and it worked!!!!
but why wont audio cds work? I tried to play it in KsCD but it wont play
Hey, uh, well, Linux systems aren't setup to read the regular audio .cda files or
whatever. I think that will work if you go through a dog and pony show, but
I just rip mine to mp3 and play them with xmms. I've been using a program called
Ripper-X (I think that's the name) to do it, but some guys have posted that there
are better apps. Just do some searching on LQ and also Google and you'll find
something. If you want to try Ripper-X, here's the addy -> sorry, I can't get it right
now - Google's down - that's been happening a lot lately. I searched LQ and you
can, too. Trickykid suggests grip, and if it's good enough for Drew, it's good enough
for me. :}

Google is back up and you can get ripper-X from http://ripperx.sourceforge.net/index.html
They also have a Slackware package - these are packages that end with .tgz and can be
installed on a Slack system by issuing, as root ->
bash-2.05b# installpkg <package name>
read man pkgtool and the others suggested at the bottom of it for more info, plus you can
get a lot of info from the Slackware website.

Glad we could help you. In 1999 I tried DeadRat, and quit after about 2 months. If I had
found a site like LQ then, it's no telling where I would be today. Those 4 years would have
be spent learning Linux, and I never would have encountered Windoze eXperiment.

LQ is the main reason that I'm able to use Linux at all today. There are no books in English
where I live, and so I'm totally dependent upon the web and /usr/doc/Linux-HOWTOs/ and
/usr/doc/Linux-FAQs (these are in Slackware, but I don't know about other distros). I've also
started reading some things, and I believe the Rute User's Tutorial and Exposition by Paul Sheer
is a must read for all newbies like myself migrating from Micro$loth Windoze.
