I also noticed this problem, using FC3 and X-CD-Roast version 0.98alpha15.

Comment 3 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:34:49 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 4 Andrew Schultz 2005-08-21 01:35:54 EDT
It is still a problem (with FC4).  There's a workaround in bug 147560

*** Bug 147560 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Comment 6 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:47:45 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 7 John Gotts 2007-01-28 19:44:52 EST
This bug still exists in Fedora Core 6.
Comment 8 Toshio Kuratomi 2007-01-29 11:27:04 EST

> This bug still exists in Fedora Core 6.

Moving bug forward to target FC6
Comment 9 Leonard A. Hickey 2007-08-06 02:03:20 EDT
I also noticed this bug in FC6, I've provided a kludge in
the xcdroast spec file for a workaround allowing cdrecord
to burn the DVD's.  This allows xcdroast to own the file
/usr/bin/cdrecord.prodvd, since xcdroast is the only program
calling for this particular file name that I have noticed.
my current versions of xcdroast and cdrtools are:
cdrtools-2.01.01-33.src.rpm and
The new cdrtools provides support for blu-ray disks, but I
haven't tested this feature personally

Three lines added to xcdroast.spec after line #: 61
# the following kludge was added to allow DVD writing by Len Hickey
%{__ln_s} %{_bindir}/cdrecord %{buildroot}%{_bindir}/cdrecord.prodvd
