btw, why do you do this as root?
Comment 2 Justin Conover 2004-12-20 07:47:44 EST
I said that it does it as root "too" ;)  As in user doesn' work, root
doesn't work.  Just eliminating as many things as I could for you.
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-12-20 08:14:23 EST
ok :)
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2005-01-31 08:19:48 EST
very strange... worksforme... is the "search path" correctly set in
the third tab??
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-16 10:03:01 EDT
CANTFIX without more information, closed due to inactivity.
Comment 6 Ben Gaskin 2005-09-22 22:46:14 EDT
I had the same problem...
k3b 0.11.20
growisofs 5.21
debian 2.6.8

The search path includes /usr/bin (which is where growisofs is installed).
growisofs has executable permissions set (owned by root, permissions 755).

This happened when I was running as root.  OK, I know I shouldn't have been.

The problem disappeared when I ran as a regular user.
