1. Do you have the Redbook Audio Cable installed from said CDROM device
to said Sound card CD-IN input?
2. If not, did you remove it during the installation of alsa (wink
wink... joking here, unless you did remove it)
3. Have you tried Digital Audio Extraction, this is what "ripping" a CD
does. I know XMMS and Rhythmbox (only music stuff I use) does both.
4. Make sure you have "unmuted" the CD-Audio.
