Hi,

I go through the FAQ about powerppc support, realize that failure to play audio cd is because of the lack of connection between cd player and sound card, is there any way to make it work without resolve to xmms and alsa?

I found some porting suggest the use of cdparanoia and a patch for gnome-media:

Anyone try this way? any other less hassle way to solve it?

thank

In my powerbook I used this: http://packages.gentoo.org/search/?sstring=cdread

or just:

Code:

emerge xmms-cdread


And when you are in xmms you have to "play a location" and than type /dev/cdroms/cdrom0

Have fun!
