    Please, install the package with full kernel sources for your distribution
    or use --with-kernel=dir option to specify another directory with kernel
    sources (default is /usr/src/linux).

    If anyone have an Idea what is the problem, and how to solve, I appreciate.

    That actually might be a hardware problem. Open up your box and make sure that the audio cable is plugged into your CD-ROM, and also to the appropriate slot on your sound card. If that doesn't fix it, then I don't know :-)

    that, or make sure that your cd playing app doesnt use an audio mixer of its own. Also make sure that your desktop manager isnt stealing control of the audio device, even if its just silenc. Generaly each device can only be in use by one user/program at a time. The mixers generaly handle multiple programs audio output.
