Heh that's exactly what I experienced, only, I worded it incorrectly because... I wasn't thinking straight ;D When I confirmed/closed the error dialog, it disappeared, and the pSX window showed up a short bit later, which is why I got the impression that it "restarted" when, in fact, it was simply re-displaying the main window
- Any way to load the CD drive directly via commandline?
To answer my own question (in case anyone else is wondering)... using ./pSX /dev/cdrom works -- I forgot to test that before (I think) and only tried ./pSX /media/cdrom (which didn't/doesn't work).
Aha! I certainly was wondering - you must be soooo surprised! I also couldn't get /media/cdrom to work - it kept saying it couldn't find the correct format and going to what looks like a copy protection screen - until I realised it did this whether or not a CD was in the drive...
At first I couldn't get /dev/cdrom to work either; then, I remembered that if I do this with the Insert CDROM command in pSX, it always shows my DVD-RW as default, and I have to change to my DVD-ROM, which I usually run CDs/DVDs from. I put the CD in my DVD-RW - and it worked! Ta, Ultima, that's some more text files I can set up to run pSX from...
Any thoughts on how I can get it to run from my DVD-ROM?

Oddly, Ubuntu seems to have decided today that my DVD-ROM is the drive it'll read from /dev/cdrom. pSX Author, you've got a method of identifying and selecting the available optical drives in pSX; is there a simple way we can do this in a terminal command?
