Description of problem:
Pretty much the summary
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to that kernel
2. try either application as per summary
Both apps complain about 'no cd burner'
Happily burned cd.
will try on i386 platform too.
The problem is due to changes in the kernel interface - you can work
around it by running the cd recording software as root (via sudo, for
example) - simply setting the cdrecord binary suid is insufficient.
Also, beware that there's a bug in the kernel that causes out of
memory conditions while burning audio cds (see bug 132180), and that
even if your burn manages to complete, the resulting cd is corrupt
In short, 2.6.8 is a nightmare with respect to CD burning.
oh, and this is a dup of bug 130576
