    Default IBM600E Unstable Gnome 2.2 gnome-cd : invalid cd device


    Selecting CD player from Gnome 2.2. get error message "Invalid CD
    Device". By starting a VMWare guest(W2k), connecting then
    disconnecting the CD in VMWare, the "CD Player" will start
    working.

    Is there a way to coax the CD player into working without the
    need to start a VMWare guest os?

    Kernel 2.4.21
    OSS sound.
    CD device /dev/hdc

    Thank you,

    Please check:

    That /dev/hdc is symbolically linked from /dev/cdrom;
    That /cdrom is the mount point for /dev/hdc, at /etc/fstab;
    That the CD player is configured to either /dev/hdc or /dev/cdrom;
    That you computer has og audio from the CD.

    If your system has only digital audio, you have to use a CDDA (Compact
    Disk Digital Audio) player, like XMMS (kinda clunky for this use) or Totem
    (upgrade to the latest version before trying to use).

    Recent notebooks, like the Apple iBooks, tend to have only CDDA to cut
    costs associated with og CD audio. Because GNU is not nearly as
    common in portables as in desktops, this tends to be overlooked by
    developers.
