k3b tells you that it doesn't work anymore and that you should use k3bconfig
to remove the suid bit. But that is actually not true. For me it did not work
without the suid bit set, but it works with suid bit set (just do
dpkg-reconfigure cdrecord and chose yes). I am using kernel 2.6.12 from
Debian. With kernels 2.6.8 and 2.6.9 it seems you really have to be root to
burn cds. You could do the following: install sudo and use visudo to
edit /etc/sudoers and add:
then add in .bashrc
alias cdrecord='sudo cdrecord'
alias cdrdao='sudo cdrdao'
Now all users can burn cds. What actually happens is, that cdrecord and cdrdao
will allways be run as root.
