Description of problem:
This seems to be a problem with kernel 2.6.8-1.521 and cdrecord 2.01.1.
On machines with 2.6.7, cdrecord dev=ATA:1,0,0 -checkdrive | grep
Supported yeilds the following:
Supported modes: TAO PACKET SAO SAO/R96P SAO/R96R RAW/R16
On 2.6.8, we get
So, no modes supported.
I tried this on a machine running 2.6.7, and cdrecord worked properly.
Then upgraded to 2.6.8 (yum install kernel) and cdrecord stopped
working for users. With 2.6.8, it works properly as root, but not as
users, even when the user owns the device file for the burner.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install kernel
2. cdrecord dev=<appropriate burner device> -checkdrive
