Description of problem:
Why is it gtoaster requires the root password, whereas other
cd-writing software just works since the user on the console is owner
of the various devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gtoaster as a normal user
2. get all puzzled when a prompt for the root password appears
Note: running gtoaster-root as a normal user seems to work! At least
in my setup it is not necessary to go through consolehelper here!
The "gtoaster" package has been removed from Fedora Core 2 (and upwards).
Gnome Toaster wasn't really getting updated upstream anymore, see the website :
Newer Fedora Core releases (FC4) have "k3b" and/or the CD burning capabilities
