Tuesday 8 July
I got back from kempo (a form of karate) this evening, feeling quite depressed. I wanted music. Lots of music. I had a choice, download some mp3's which I beleive is technically illegal, or play a cd. So.. I set about working out why xmms wouldnt play my cd's.

All the appropriate plugins were installed. It wouldnt list the contents of my CD. Finally, I found a posting on a newsgroup.. "Play Location", so I hit [CTRL]+[L] and entered /mnt/cdrom, and... it started playing. Its not very clear you have to "Play Location" and not just "Add Directory" (not very clear to me anyway, but then I suck at reading documentation), but still, its working now. Note: This is using the cd plugin shipped as standard with Mandrake 9.1.
