Description of problem:
xcdroast fails to access cdrecord
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install xcdroast
2. Run it at the command line
** (xcdroast:9473): WARNING **: Failed to access cdrecord. Please check the
permissions and ownership of /usr/bin/cdrecord
(same result as root user)
$ ls -l /usr/bin/cdrecord
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 5 2007-05-03 10:21 /usr/bin/cdrecord -> wodim

Well, it seems that at least some code modification
releated to check_binaries() in src/init.c is required.
Especially in src/init.c and src/io.c, xcdroast tries
to check the existence of the binaries in what was in
cdrecord by calling the binary with -version for example,
and xcdroast expects that the output message (i.e.
cdrecord -version, now wodim -version) follows the format what

you can get xcdroast working in fedora 7 by installing cdrecord from an older fc
release. here's what I did:
$ sudo mv /usr/bin/cdrecord /usr/bin/cdrecord.f7
$ sudo mv /usr/bin/dvdrecord /usr/bin/dvdrecord.f7
$ sudo mv /usr/bin/devdump /usr/bin/devdump.f7
$ sudo rpm -ivh --force cdrecord-2.01.01.0.a03-3.i386.rpm
after that, you'll want to patch xcdroast in the gnome toolbar to start xcdroast
with the -n option, since mkisofs has a conflict as well.

Of course it may work, however this must not be our solution..
