Hello,

I've installed Gentoo and am now trying to set up various bits of hardware and get the system configured. After solving a problem with Gnome system sounds, the next thing on the list is CD Audio. If I insert an audio CD, it is recognised and a shortcut added to the desktop. If I try and open that shortcut, I get an error saying that it doesn't know how to open cdda:////dev/hdc. I have no problem mounting data CDs. I'm guessing that there's some kind of CD audio/cdda package that I need to emerge, but I've searched and the best thing I came up with was libcdaudio - this didn't help though. If I try and play the CD with the Gnome CD player, it reports a drive error. If I try and open Totem through Gnome, it crashes - with the very helpful error "No reason". If i try Totem through the command line, I get the following errors, and then the "no reason" message box:

Code:

(totem:7439): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Cannot load module `/usr/lib64/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libcdda.so' (/usr/lib64/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libcdda.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

(totem:7439): libgnomevfs-WARNING **: Cannot load module `/usr/lib64/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libcdda.so' (/usr/lib64/gnome-vfs-2.0/modules/libcdda.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory)

** (totem:7439): CRITICAL **: egg_recent_view_gtk_create_tooltip: assertion `GTK_IS_WIDGET (menu_item)' failed

** (totem:7439): WARNING **: No GConf default audio sink key and osssink doesn't work
** Message: failed to render default audio sink from gconf


It's complaining about libcdda so I guess it's problems are linked with the CD audio problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated. If you need any more system info, just ask.

Cheers,

Ben

yeah compact disk digital audio (cdda) needs a shared library but i'm surprised it wasn't brought in with nautilus. libcdda.so is the one you want and anything like xine, alsaplayer or xmms/beep-media-player should bring in the shared libs

Hi, thanks for replying. I've tried emerging xine, rhythmbox and alsaplayer. Xine and alsaplayer can play audio CDs no problem. Rhythmbox and the gnome cd player cannot. However, the gnome cd player now says that I need to install a GStreamer plugin for my soundcard, which is an ATI IXP SB400 AC97. I've emerged gstreamer. Rhythm box recognises the CD and retrieves track info from cddb, but when I try and play says that it couldn't create audio output.

After reading some threads on the forums I have tried chmoding /dev/cdrom, /dev/hdc and /dev/dsp to 777. This didn't seem to make any difference.

Gnome doesn't seem able to recognise an audio CD anymore ... it doesn't add the shortcut to the desktop like it used to.

Also, i unmerged totem and remerged it again - it now no longer crashes on startup but I get the same output when running it from the console, without the final warning.

Any advice greatly appreciated!

Cheers, Ben

I might be of no help at all, but I know that in XMMS CD audio depends on whether you have the analog line connected from drive to your sound card or not. In the options, there's a toggle for either analog playback (connected) or digital feed (not connected). Might look for something like that. Otherwise, someone else probably knows something about the dependencies that I wouldn't. Good luck, tho!

it sounds like you have a gnome monting problem seeing as it is just the gnome player really. Have a search around the forums for an answer to that.

Moved from Multimedia to Duplicate Threads in favour of "No GConf default audio sink key and osssink doesn't work"

Edit: I suck, I linked to this thread instead of the one I was supposed to link to...
