Description of problem:
When using k3b as a normal user, you can't burn a CD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. login as a normal user
2. run k3b
3. the cd burner seems unable to burn CDs
Actual Results: You can't burn a CD
Expected Results: You can burn the CD
If you do the same procedure as root, you can do what you want.
Changing permissions on /dev/cdrom (or /dev/hdc in my case) doesn't
change a thing.
For information, I'm running a 2.6.8-1.521 kernel.
where did you get that kernel??
From fedora, it's kernel package kernel-2.6.8-1.521.i686.rpm released
in the updates directory on August,19.
great! :( then I have to release fixed xcdroast/k3b/cdrtools/cdrdao
I'd be very thankful when you do ;)
I upgraded to the new versions of
xcdroast/k3b/cdrtools/cdrdao/dvd+rw... and the problem is still there
: as root I have access to my burner (pioneer 105 dvd burner) but not
as a normal user.
For information, I have reset the k3brc files to be sure there's
nothing left around.
Any idea ?
be sure to have /dev/cdrom symlinks

I have just tried to use k3b-0.11.14-0.FC2.2 under kernel-2.6.8-1.521
to burn a DVD-R as a non-root user. It failed. I saw Harald's comment
about having /dev/cdrom symlinks. What exactly does that mean? I have
the following on my system:
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Aug 5 00:19 /dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Oct 23 21:02 /dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/hdd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Oct 22 12:32 /dev/cdwriter -> /dev/hdd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Aug 5 01:13 /dev/dvd -> /dev/hdc
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Aug 5 01:13 /dev/dvdwriter -> /dev/hdd
Has my blank DVD-R been damaged, or can I still use it?
Anand Buddhdev: this problem can only be fixed with a new kernel
