Re: [Thinkpad] System Freeze w/audio CDs

What CD player program are you using? Does it freeze as soon as you stick the disk in? If so, what desktop are you using? KDE? Gnome? XFCE? Can you play other sounds/music files? Can you rip audio with CDParanoia? Which optical drive do you have?

I installed "etch" on a Z60t Thinkpad a few days ago.  Now, the entire
system freezes when I attempt to play an audio CD.  Although I'm new to
Linux, this sounds major; as in, I'll likely need to reinstall it.  Of
course, the experience, which leads me to this assessment comes from working
with Apple OS/X and Windows.  Is this assessment correct?  If not, where
should I begin looking to ID and correct the problem?
