I only came around today to test this. I have Cynthiune from CVS, same with 
gnustep core libraries are the latest releases.
But I did not had much luck. CDPlayer compiled fine, but then the player window 
stays white. I cannot do anything with it, and also in the menu, I cannot click 

Then, I set the default:
CDPlayer Device /dev/cd0c
On startup, I hear the CD in the drive doing a bit, but still, the CDPlayer 
window stays white.
