dcd is a Linux CD player made by a slacker, for slackers. dcd was started because I got tired of having to dedicate a whole console to workbone, and the CD players available for X were, at the time, universally lacking in features. They're a bit better now, though.dcd plays CDs, lets you set up CD playlists, and does most of what a conventional CD player does, in a (hopefully) intuitive manner.

For installation follow these steps:
Look at the Makefile.
There are a few things you might want to change:
If /dev/cdrom isn't a symlink to your "real" CD-ROM device, either edit the Makefile or create the symlink as appropriate.
You might want to enable the debugging flags. But probably not.
Various other configuration options which are explained much better in the Makefile.

Type `make'. Then type `make install' or just copy the binary (dcd) and manual page (dcd.1) somewhere useful.

What's New in This Release:
Removed network support (it's in the Makefile) for Thinstation
