In the 'nonroot' mode of X-CD-Roast 0.96e the child processes called by
X-CD-Roast are running as the calling user and not as 'root'. So most
operations end up in 'Permission denied' (for example when one reads a CD
in 'Copy Data CD' one gets 'Permission denied' when 99% of the CD are
read). This problem appeared probably with the change von bash 1.x to bash
2.x (see 'man 3 system'). I developed the 'nonroot' mode under an old
Linux distribution (SuSE 5.x) and there the problem didn't appear. In
newer distributions (SuSE 6.x, Mandrake 6.1, RedHat 6.x) it appeared.
This problem I have addressed with a new version (0.96ex2) which one can
download the source tarball at
Note that the correct version is stored as xcdroast-0.96ex2.tar.gz.
xcdroast-0.96ex.tar.gz (without the '2' after 'ex') is an older version
which still has bugs.
Also all binary and '.rpm' packages still have bugs.
In this version I have also fixed the problem of the not working progress
bar when using CD-Paranoia. This should work with CD-Paranoia III Alpha
9.5 or newer. I tested with 9.7.
