I don't know. It thinks it is playing, but I'm not hearing anything. gnome-cd yeilds audio, KsCD doesnt. Here is what mixer reports: p1 13:58 <tao2>  mixer Mixer vol is currently set to 77:77 Mixer pcm is currently set to 86:86 Mixer speaker is currently set to 75:75 Mixer line is currently set to 75:75 Mixer mic is currently set to 50:50 Mixer cd is currently set to 75:75 Mixer rec is currently set to 50:50 Mixer igain is currently set to 49:49 Mixer ogain is currently set to 50:50 Mixer line1 is currently set to 75:75 Mixer phin is currently set to 50:50 Mixer phout is currently set to 50:50 Mixer video is currently set to 75:75 > There are two ways of playing CDs.

I havve tried /dev/acd0 and /dev/cdrom (they are links); no difference. Maybe this one requires the SCSI work-aroumd. Whatever I do in the configuration, lsof tells me that kscd is looking at the real /dev, /dev/acd0. One thing that may be a clue is that the "Select audio backend" string is greyed out. gary > > > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" -- Gary Kline [EMAIL PROTECTED] www.thought.org Public Service Unix http://jottings.thought.org http://transfinite.thought.org _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
