k3b debug output
Description of problem:
When attempting to burn a DVD project, K3B reports an error
"Unable to determine size of resulting image file"
Works if one logs in as root.
Doesn't work if one sudos k3b ( kde permissions )
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create DVD project
2. Add some files
3. Select Burn
4. Select Burn
Error as above
DVD iso should be created and burned to device
I can't reproduce it.
Can you please attach k3b debug output when logged as root?
And what says this command: ls -lH `which mkisofs`
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 541364 2008-05-28 02:08 /usr/bin/mkisofs*
I am not currently at the machine that has the issue, will run as root tonight.
NB: Googling indicates this is not an isolated instance, Ubuntu users are having the same issue. I am guesisng it is permissions related but on what, I don't know.
Opps, Attempting to create CDs also results in the same error.
How are you logging in?
If using kdm/gdm, these use ConsoleKit to grant the correct privledges to local devices, like burners.

Sorry for the delay. This output shows the same action, creat a CD image performed as a std user, which fails, and as root which succeeds.
Hmmm...I don't know why root uses different version...
I have been unable to reproduce this on my systems. Can anyone else reproduce?
I can not work out why two different versions are reported. I can not even find a mkisofs 2.1
This was a vanilla F10 install from scratch selecting KDE and removing Gnome from the packages during the install.
(agree-6)geustace: echo $PATH
(agree-6)geustace: which mkisofs
(agree-6)geustace: which genisoimage
[root@agree-6 ~]# echo $PATH
[root@agree-6 ~]# which mkisofs
[root@agree-6 ~]# which genisoimage
In both cases /usr/bin/mkisofs is a symlink to /etc/alternatives/mkisofs, which is also a symlink to the same binary
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 2008-12-31 16:53 mkisofs -> /usr/bin/genisoimage*
OK, progress. My home directory was restored from my earlier fc8 install. I found the following in the .kde/share/config/k3brc file
cdrdao last seen newest version=1.2.2
cdrdao user parameters=
cdrecord last seen newest version=1.1.8
cdrecord user parameters=
dvd+rw-format last seen newest version=7.1
dvd+rw-format user parameters=
eMovix user parameters=
growisofs last seen newest version=7.1
growisofs user parameters=
mkisofs last seen newest version=2.1
mkisofs user parameters=
I will rm this file and see if that changes anything.
Removing .kde/share/config/k3brc seems to have resolved the issue. There must have been some artifact in the file carried forward from Fedora 8.
