Description Mary Ellen Foster 2007-12-05 09:35:25 UTC
Description of problem:
On Fedora, cdparanoia has been compiled with O_EXCL since, it seems, 2003. This
causes problems when ripping CDs in KDE: when you put in a CD, a kio_audiocd
process is started, which means cdparanoia can't access the drive until you kill
the kio_audiocd. The full details are described upstream at

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a music CD
2. Open kaudiocreator
3. Try to rip the tracks
Actual results:
A message about how cdparanoia can't access the tracks

Expected results:
Ripping the tracks

Additional info:
Running "killall kio_audiocd" after inserting the CD makes things work.

This seems to be related to bug 206847 -- it's a different thing that O_EXCL
breaks. Feel free to close this as a duplicate of the other one, but please look
into fixing this somehow.
