Summary: Audio CD not detected with KDE4
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: KDE4 Applications
AssignedTo: kde-maintainers@xxxxxxx
ReportedBy: Joseph.Comfort@xxxxxxx

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:
Gecko/2009042700 SUSE/3.0.10-1.1.1 Firefox/3.0.10

I installed the very recent respin of the openSuSE 11.1 KDE4 x86_64 system.
The rpms were fully updated to the latest versions. I get system sounds. I
have good sounds from web videos (e.g., youtube). The configuration seems

However, audio CDs are not detected. I can not play music with KsCD or Amarok.
The CDs have been playable on previous SuSE releases on the same hardware: I'm
certain about 10.3 and 11.0, and pretty sure about a KDE3.5 installation of
11.1. The problem also occurs identically on a laptop, which has different

Other related items: I do not get a 'device plugin' popup when an audio CD is
inserted. MyComputer does not show anything. On the other hand, if a data CD
is inserted, I get a popup and an entry in MyComputer. But the data CD is not
mounted and the MyComputer entry does not provide for a mount. If I mount
manually, I can see the files.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the respin of the openSuSE 11.1 KDE4 live CD on an x86_64 system.
2. The problem shows up whether the rpms are updated or not.
3. Insert an audio CD and try to play the music.
Actual Results:

Expected Results:
Happy music.

The computer is a HP Pavilion a1520n with a AMD Athlon X2 cpu. The graphics
chip is NVidia GEForce 5150 LE, and the PCI system is MCP51. (The choice of nv
or nvidia modules does not matter.) The on-board sound is nVidia MCP51 HDA,
and uses a Realtek ALC883 codec. All sound modules, including snd_hda_intel
are loaded.

The bug is similar to others that are reported. (I don't see any fixes for my
case.) I followed some ideas in bug 428153. dmesg after an audio CD insertion
gives something like:
end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 144
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 36
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 37
end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 144
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 36
end_request: I/O error, dev sr0, sector 148
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 37

The command 'lshal --monitor' gives

17:09:03.394: volume_part_1_size_574130176 removed

Based on the comments in bug 428153, the problem is likely a KDE4 bug.

The command 'cdparanoia -vsQ' gives
