I think what was asked for was a solution, not an explanation why it
can't be done.
It seems that the best is to avoid a 2.6 kernel if possible.
Works fine for me on SuSE 9.2 (and on 9.1), 2.6 kernel, running cdrecord
as $USER (and /dev/hdX device addressing).
Have you tried multisession as a user? What I see is that I can write
the first session just fine, but that the -msinfo option is not
available as a user. When I asked about this on the kernel mailing list
I was told I didn't have permissions on the drive, although the problem
really is that even with read and write you must be root to use the SCSI
command needed for -msinfo.
There seem to be three cases with the 2.6 kernel, assume the burner is
- no command line options
I'm not sure that the 1st and 3rd are identical in behaviour, and I'm
not at a good place to reboot right now to see. I hope to try this in
the next few hours.
