Re: audio cd


Well, here's what I have so far.
<file/dir>             <group>
/cdrom                root
/dev/cdrom         root
/dev/hdc             disk

I took the liberty to add myself to group disk. In KDE control center, the CD device is listed as /dev/cdrom. I can mount data cds just fine so I don't think the group is so much the problem here. What else could be holding me back from accessing my audio cd?

You can do ls -l /dev/hdc /dev/cdrom to see what the groups are... then
add yourself to that group (assuming the devices have permissions on
adduser username groupname          (done as root)
then you have to log out and back in...
You might also try installing a simple cd player such as cdcd and try
playing from there; or if using xmms start it from an x terminal window
so you can see error messages.
