Linux?? you're playing ePSXe on linux... you have to compile plugins or sth? just as in windows copy all files to proper directories?

I think I've done anything right. since I can run the Bios with sound the sound and graphic plugin should be ok. So it has to be something else maybe Dvd drive or something is there a file where i can read whats going when the game is starting ?

In my linux experience, cd reading can be a bit difficult. You should try imaging it and playing as an iso.

* ePSXe: PSX BIOS loaded [/home/dirk/epsxe160lin/bios/SCPH1001.BIN].
* Init internal cdrom ... ok
CD read toc header failed (25)

It can't read the cd. It's trying to use an ioctl interface, and failing to do that. I'll try to test a little my linux ePSXe when i get home, but as of now, don't know how to deal with this :/ .

You'll probably have to recompile or find another CDVD plugin specifically for linux otherwise change the plugin options cause it obviously says. "CD read toc header failed (25)" which means it can't read the cd-rom. If you have a dual-boot system just run the game in windows. I'm sure it will run fine there.

RE3 is copy protected
Use subchannel reading ir your drive supports it, or download a PPF for your version of the game
on a site (the only site I know is on the NGEmu blacklist)

Subchannel datas is a feature on the a disc that can be used to store fake datas
that are normally corrected by the drive. On PSX games, such datas are used
as copy protection thus preventing the game to load if the drive corrects those fakes errors. Drives that supports subchannel reading are able to detect those data as s.c
so they don't correct them, making the game like an original...
Anyways, if the ISO works it's fine :)
