    Red face how 2 play cds on mepis??


    I've managed to install mepis 6 ok but cannot get cds to play. the system sound effects work fine but the media players either error on me or appear to play the cd but with no sound. This is probably due to missing codecs or related problems but cuz i'm new to simplymepis i've no idea how to go about downloading them or updateing the system in general
    Help!

    make sure cd part of the audio mixer is not muted. Either use the graphic mixer of your choice or run from the command line alsamixer
