Doesn't make a difference.

The output file does not mention the "Invalid argument" message
or, as far as I can understand, any other fatal stuff.

``xine cdda://dev/acd0/n'' works fine despite of six lines
``Cannot find address for OpenGl extension function ...
which should be available according to extension specs.''.
But the GUI does not work properly. For example, the CD button generates
``CDIOCREADAUDIO: Invalid argument'' messages.
No wonder that gxine and kaffeine which use the xine engine don't work either.

Disappointing, but better than nothing.
Thank you again for your comments.
