Just installed Slackware 12.1. All is well. Er, well, most is well.
Can't play a music CD.
+ Sound card, speakers, head phones work because I can play a .wav
or .au file.
+ Mixer works because I can vary volume with aumix when playing a
+ Software to play CDs (Szijarto Szabolcs' cdp or Max Vozeler's
cdtool) appears to work: The drive spins up, pauses, resumes,
stops and ejects in response to corresponding commands from the
software. But no sound.
This is a Dell Dimension 3000 w/ Intel P4 CPU and (according to lspci)
Intel 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) Audio Controller.
There are two drives: One CD and one CD/RW. The above problem occurs
whether I point /dev/cdrom to /dev/hdd or /dev/hdc (with a CD in the
appropriate drive, of course.)
I've run alsaconf. No better.
It's probably something stupid and obvious but I'm dull and lert.
Something about udev that I don't know? Perms on /usr/weird_file?
Have to depress the blue thing twice? Duh.
