Let me add a few comments after Pietro Cerutti's. With the cdcontrol you will determine if your hardware is able to play audio CDs. On (some?) PCs you have to connect the CD-ROM drive to your sound card, I cannot count the number of times I forgetted to reconnect this cable after an in-chassis intervention. If you can play CDs with cdcontrol, it is likely that your preffered CD-player cannot figure where to find the CD-rom device. It is fairly common that CD-player applications expect to find a symbolic link /dev/cdrom pointing to the actual CD-ROM controlling device. If there is no such link on your system, it can easily be added. However, it is not sufficient to # cd /dev; ln -s acd0 cdrom because /dev is not a persistant filesystem (it is reinitialised across reboots, because it is a *virtual* filesystem). To add the symbolic link, you should edit the /etc/devfs.conf file (look at the line with the word `cdrom' in it) and let the system notice your changes: # vi /etc/devfs.conf # /etc/rc.d/devfs restart (If you are not comfortable with vi, try the easy editor `ee' instead: # ee /etc/devfs.conf ) You might prefer trying to tell your preferred CD-player where it can find the CD-ROM device, this can often be done with an `Edit Preferences' dialog. -- Hope this helps, Michaël _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
