Funny, the CD/DVD drive icon isn't there. It was earlier.

beekster,

What Puppy is this? There's a bug in some of the recent ones, the CD drive icon doesn't appear if you load an audio CD.

01micko posted a .pet which fixes it in a thread somewhere but not sure where (I have a copy stored locally) and not sure if this is your problem.

EDIT:- see this thread http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=679757#679757

A friend gave me this old XP Pentium 4 PC with 512Mb RAM. I've since found out that there are so many old PCs out there which can be had for next to nothing! I ran across an article by Howard Fosdick "Smart Reuse with Open Source: Linux Goes Green", and that's how I ran across Puppy, and, evidently, a community of like minded people. My background is not in IT, but, as a problem solver and fixologist the idea of getting some real value out of these things, rather than sending them to the scrap heaps of China, is something I couldn't pass up.

I've installed 2 gigs of RAM which is a noticeable improvement, and before Puppy I was able to get the DVD drive working (Good thing!) I downloaded a video decoder, opened it up and cleaned it and updated the firmware. I still haven't been able to get it to see a CD. My bet is it's some problem with the registry (Windows terminology?) That's not a deal breaker, but it's an interesting challenge. I look forward to moving on and discovering more about my Wary Puppy, and finding out about some of the other breeds too. Very Happy

Subject description: audacious and…
 

@beekster - audacious is a rather nice audio/CD-player, but you may need to check for dependencies in the particular version you dl'd and installed ~or~ go with an older version. Try starting it from the console (audacious at the #, then enter/return<key>) and it will likely have some info as to what's needed to get it running.. if that gets messy, uninstall via the ppm (Puppy Package Manager) and try another version - not all dotpets will work with all pups.

Starting 'fresh' is an option - type the bootcode "puppy pfix=ram" (you'll see it at the # prompt under the bootsplash graphic, which also shows the version number of your wary) and do some light setting work (again Wink ), then reboot and make a new savefile (name it a bit differently, the save dialogue will guide you). Choose your new savefile when asked during the reboot.

Keep your savefile slim and healthy has some good tips.

hth & keep'em flying Smile

As regards the cdrom issue:
#: dmsg.txt: command not found
gzip: dmsg.txt: no such file or directory

then

dd: opening /dev/cdrom: no medium found

So, I guess that confirms what's not happening with the cdrom!
