Thanks everybody for responding (including the person who doesn't know
what "deprecate" means!).
1 - The documentation indicates that using cd- and dvd- roms is a
straightforward process - bring up a player, (xmms or cdplayer) click on
"play" and off you go. Was Fedora 1 released so buggy that something as
basic as this didn't work?
2 - I wasn't clear about something: The problem isn't that the cd or dvd
plays but there's no sound. It's that the cd (dvd) isn't playing at all.
None of the controls on the player respond including eject, and when I
close it, the drive won't eject manually either. I don't think adding a
sound cable will address this.
