what kernel are you guys using? 2.4.26, i think that may be the reason why, try using a newer kernel to see if it works...

Nope. I'm using 2.4.26 and have none of the OP's problems. That's because I know how to configure my system. If I were setting at the OP's keyboard, I could have the optical drives working the way they should in less than 5 minutes. I've given him all the info I can and still no joy. It's kind of difficult to configure a system from 1500 miles away when someone else keeps confusing the situation.

I've tried the newer kernel, I've tried reinstall, I've tried other distros (which work) That's not it. I am using the 2.4.26.
Also I had Slackware 9.1 on this computer some months back with CD player working. I have added a second hard drive with spare windows: maybe I should pull it out.
I appreciate all the help you have given me. I like slackware very much. And more than SUSE. which is pathetically slow.

I will try unmounting some devices first. I f not then I will go back to 9.1 and do an upgrade somehow.
What other configuration files are there? kuser? what's that? I'll try another gui, what's the point.

I think my issue is hardware detection of some sorts.
Here's what I get as root:
root@tendata:/home/thom# umount /mnt/cdrom
umount: /mnt/cdrom: not mounted
root@tendata:/home/thom# mount /mnt/cdrom
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cdrom,
or too many mounted file systems
root@tendata:/home/thom#

maybe you should try deleting the block dev. and make a new block device... or try this...
if you still have suse or another distro on you system, copy the block device from the slack10 and keep that as a backup...
copy the block device from the suse or slack 9.1 to slack10 and try mounting it that way hey its a long shot but it may work... if it doesnt just cp the backup block dev..

Unhappy

I've still got no luck. I pulled my second hard drive out just in case:
I can of course add my self to root group, but what's the point.

Thumbs up Success!

Success. I had to add "user" not "users". Well that only took me a week.
Now how do I change my cdrom to the dvd that it really is and add my cdrw.
Both detected on boot.
