Description David Bentley 2004-10-23 14:35:27 UTC

Description of problem:
Just tried the CD burning application K3b and on doing
a system check you get the following error message :-

Unable to find cdrdao executable
K3b uses cdrdao to actually write CDs.
Solution: Install the cdrdao package.

so i checked and it is not installed and can't be via
Add/Remove Applications so I uninstalled K3b and
re-installed it and then went and got the offered
update from Rawhide which went OK and it still
complains so I checked Rawhide and cdrdao is there to
install so this would appear to be a package that
needs to be added to the intall by default in the

I have just checked FC3T3 and found the package on

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
instal using GNOME as the desktop and on FC3T3 with K3b selected

Actual Results:  installs OK and you can copy CD's but system check

Unable to find cdrdao executable
K3b uses cdrdao to actually write CDs.
Solution: Install the cdrdao package.

at this point no further testing of functionality has been done.

Expected Results:  If cdrdao is not required don't raise this as a
problem but if it is required for full functionality cdrdao needs to
be installed by default and moved from CD#4 to CD#3 in CORE 3  final

Not checked the status of this in FC3-rc1 as the required CD's won't
be available for install till about lunch time on the 24th of October.

Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-25 10:46:33 UTC
please include cdrdao in the default install set

Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2005-03-03 10:34:35 UTC
ok, bad suggestion.. what was I thinking?

Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2005-03-03 10:37:37 UTC
k3b can burn CD fine with cdrecord and growisofs. cdrdao is only needed for,
hmm... exact CD copies. Ok, I will add a requires, though it does not "really"
require it.

I agree so I will close this bug report.
