Problem with sound
I am running Slackware 9.1, kernel 2.4.22. I would like to listen to CDs on linux rather than connecting my speakers up to my CD player. I don't know what sound card I have. In Eterm, when I press backspace and there is nothing to delete, it sends a beep to the speakers when I have them plugged in. Is there a way that I could have XMMS do the same with MP3s/CDs?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
If you are playing an audio CD, then you could just do the following:
That should work for CDs with just one format. If it's mixed:
mount /mnt/cdrom #or wherever your cd drive is;
cd /mnt/cdrom #same as above;
xmms *.mp3 #or *.wav, *.ogg, whatever the audio format is;
xmms *.mp3 *.wav somesong.ogg
P.S. Where in Florida? I'm from St Pete :wink:
Actually, if you're listening to an audio CD, you're not supposed to mount it at all. Audio CDs are treated very specially by the hardware - they don't go through the processor at all. The program simply sends a command to the CD-ROM to start playing the CD, and the CD-ROM will play it autonomously over a dedicated audio cable directly connected to the sound card.
Adrohak, I don't really understood your problem to begin with. Have you tried just hooking the speakers up to the computer and started playing a file with XMMS?
Oh, and btw. lakerdonald, I thought you were from Russia (St. Petersburg). =D
Sorry. I suggested that because it sounded to me like his setup was prohibiting him from doing that very thing you just said, dolda. I did realize that audio cds are treated differently, but that's probably good that that bit of information is now on the forum for fellow n00bz to see ;)
P.S. maybe i should add USA to my location instead of St Petersburg, FL :roll:
