Hi Robert!

I've been thinking about some posts mentioning troubles with playing cdroms with xmms. I suspected that it was something with the menu file and really it was. As of now the files of the cdrom doesn't load automatically as they used to when choosing "Xmmms Play CD". The only thing that has to be done is to delete the /dev before /cdrom. The correct line would be like this   [exec] (Xmms Play CD) {xmms /cdrom}   in the .fluxbox/menu file. Thanks for a very promising new version of DSL.

As always have fun with DSL,

Wow...quite a few additions. But I have a long way to catch up with you guys. I wish someone can keep adding materials to the wiki for linux noobs like me to make use of all the new additions. For example, I dont know why and how to use Cron as cheatcode and how will the updated busybox with >2GB file support help me in my day-to-day work.

Thanks to Robert and others who contributed.

bokaroseani: You can use them by passing them onto the kernel with your bootloader ie by modifying lilo/grub config. See wiki page on cheatcodes for more info.

Also, if you use large files that are 2gb+, and you use busybox (ie if you don't load gnu-utils) you will now have no problems.

That may work in some situations, but in a typical setup (liveCD, frugal, maybe embedded?) /cdrom is the KNOPPIX filesystem mountpoint, and I think in a traditional harddrive install it may be just an empty directory.  I'm not sure how it is pointing to a device on your system...maybe it's a symlink?
In any case, when playing a standard audio cd (not mp3/ogg) the device is read directly, which means it's a file in /dev rather than a mountpoint
