I"ve got the CD you refer to, but I ferget how to mount the player. I
know I must be root (su -). My computer is a Sony VAIO with 2 players
and I can use either one. ;)
If you are running Slackware you most likely do not need to be root to
mount a CD or a USB drive. Usually all you need to do is some point-and-
click in your graphical desktop environment (like KDE or XFCE) to mount
and umount removable media.
Back in the days before Slackware had this udev (or before that hotplug)
configurations which allowes normal users to mount removable media a line
in /etc/fstab was usually used instead looking something like this:
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom auto noauto,user,ro,comment=x-gvfs-show 0 0
The "user" option at the line above allows a normal user to do
from the command line without relying on any point-and-click interface
with d-bus support.
