libcdaudio1 - library for controlling a CD-ROM when playing audio CDs…  more info»


General Information

libcdaudio is a library designed to provide functions to control
operation of a CD-ROM when playing audio CDs.  It also contains
functions for CDDB and CD Index lookup.


libcdaudio will compile under the following platforms.  Listed
underneath them are any functions that will not work on that platform.

Linux 1.2: CD-ROM changer functions will not work at all.

Linux 2.0: You may select discs using the cd_changer_select_disc()
function, but the cd_changer_slots() function will not work at all,
and consequently, the cd_changer_stat() function will not work as

Linux 2.1 and later: All functions should work correctly.

OpenBSD 2.3: The tray open/close functions may not work correctly.
CD-ROM changer functions will not work at all.

FreeBSD 3.2: A kernel bug prevents you from ejecting the tray when
there is no disc present.  CD-ROM changer functions will not work at

NetBSD: Might work (never tested).  Please tell me if you can test
libcdaudio on NetBSD.

Solaris 2.5, 2.6: The tray open/close functions may not work
correctly.  CD-ROM changer functions will not work at all.
cd_get_volume() will always return 0 for the volumes.

Irix: As far as I know all function work within Irix.

BeOS: A user contributed the file beos_cdaudio.c; it seems to work,
except for CD changers.

OSF/1: libcdaudio has limited and untested support for OSF/1.
Although it may be able to list the tracks and read the CDDB/CD Index
information, playing will probably fail and stopping will not work at
all.  If you are willing to test this on OSF/1, please e-mail me at

XBox: Most functions should work correctly.  The XBox seems to lack
the direct CDdrive->soundcard cable that is necessary to hear
anything, though.


If you have received libcdaudio as part of another package, read the
documentation in the top level source directory first to see if you
need to compile libcdaudio separately.

For help with installation, please see the file INSTALL.

All bugs reports should be sent to

If you do experience any problems compiling, please send me:

* The version of libcdaudio
* Your platform type and release
* the arguments and output of the configure script
* A complete list of errors that occurred during the compile
(e.g. make >& errors) and the configuration.
* The CD-ROM header file for your platform so I can modify libcdaudio
* Any other information you believe is relevant

If you experience problems during the operation of programs compiled
with this library, be sure to send:

* The version of libcdaudio
* The name and version of the program with which the error occurred
* Your platform type and release
* Any other information you believe is relevant


Send all patches to:

Be sure to include your name so I can give credit where it is due.  If
the patch fixes a bug, it would be nice if you could send the patch
along with the bug report.
