     Workbone is a text-based utility that plays audio cd's.  For it to
function, your computer will need a sound card that is configured in the
kernel or as a module (review compiling kernel tutorial).  If you don't
know whether or not your sound card is properly configured in the
original install of Monkey then place your favorite cd in the CD-ROM
drive and try running Workbone.  You're also going to need to know which
device name is associated with your CD-ROM (review CD-ROM tutorial).
Follow these steps to see if it works:

     1. Link /dev/cdrom to the correct device.  If you have an IDE/ATAPI
        CD-ROM like I do, then you'd do something similar to this:

          cd /dev             CHANGE TO /dev DIRECTORY
          ls -l cdrom         LIST WHICH DEVICE cdrom IS LINKED TO
          rm cdrom            DELETE INCORRECT cdrom LINK
          ln -s hdc cdrom     CREATE NEW cdrom LINK

     2. Change ownership of the CD-ROM, so users (other than root) can
        use Workbone, with the following command:

          chmod 666 /dev/cdrom

     3. Place an audio cd in the CD-ROM tray and start Workbone.

          workbone

     If you correctly completed step 1 then Workbone will initialize
itself and a text console will appear on the screen.  The control

               +---| number pad |---+
               |                    |
               |   []    ||    =>   |
               |                    |
               |   <     ^^     >   |
               |                    |
               |   <<    ..    >>   |
               |                    |
               |   quit         ?   |
               +--------------------+

functions on the screen correspond with your keyboard's number pad.  The
'Num Lock' key must be activated for the controls to work.  Here's a
break down of the controls:

               +---+---+---+---+	.  help
               | N | / | * | - |	0  exit menu with music
               +---+---+---+---+	1  rewind 15 seconds
               | 7 | 8 | 9 |   |	2  quit/disc eject

               | 4 | 5 | 6 |   |	4  previous track

               |   0   | . |   |	8  pause/play
               +-------+---+---+ 	9  play

                                                                    [ top ]
