[vox-tech] strange problems with cdplay


i have used cdplay on my pc running debian linux without any problems....
however when i try it on an older mac (7100/80) running the same version of
debian i get these kind of errors:

dylan@surf:~$ cdplay
cdplay: ioctl cdrommsf

dylan@surf:~$ cdvolume 128
cdvolume: CDROMVOLCTRL ioctl failed

however: cdown, and cdir (cd track lookup functions) work just fine.

dylan@surf:~$ cdown
