Description of problem:
I have configured alsa sound and can hear audio from other sources
(test, mp3, realplayer, etc).
I cannot hear audio from a audio cd.
CDP gives "Wait... Reading CD Status..."
I have /dev/cdrom linked to /dev/hda
I can mount data disks on that drive and read/write them.
It worked with alsa under 2.4 kernels.
It works with M$.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Insert audio cd
Actual Results: CDO hangs on the message Wait... Reading CD Status ...
Expected Results: I expect to hear audio
Gnome's CD Player says "Invalid CD Device"
title Fedora Core (2.6.1-1.65smp)
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.1-1.65smp ro root=LABEL=/ hda=ide-scsi rhgb
This isn't a bug in cdp.
is wrong. Very wrong.
Please try without that.
cdp and Sound and Video->CD Player now find the device properly. Only
getting a "popping" noise from speaker (yes, I have changed mixer
settings with alsamixer). But I can work on that myself.
ide-scsi is being added to grub.conf by either grub or kernel.rpm as I
am not setting it. So should I file a bug against one of them?
File a bug at 8:00PM on Sunday and get a fix by 4:00AM Monday. Who
says there is no support? :-)
Did you do an upgrade with yum/up2date, or a fresh install?
The original install was FC1 from CDROM using the 2.4 kernels.
Subsequently, all updates have been done via YUM. Shortly before
test1 was made available, I switched to 2.6 kernels (yum install
kernel-2.6,,,,). Since then I have used yum to install all subsequent
Each kernel that gets installed via yum, gets ids-scsi=/dev/hda in the
boot stanza in grub.conf.
Hope this answers your question.
Removing the ids-scsi=/dev/hda solved the problem.
