Re: cdrecord & cdwriter
P.S. I use the kernel 2.6.8-1-386 version 2.6.8-4
There is some issue with the 18.104.22.168 kernel and cdwriting. The only
infromation I have about this is from k3b.org (in the news section):
"Do not use Kernel 2.6.8
A patch that was introduced into the kernel shortly before the 2.6.8
release makes K3b and also the dvd+rw-tools unusable on Linux (unless
run as root but that is not recommended). The very important GET
CONFIGURATION MMC command is rejected by the kernel for reasons I
cannot see and writing commands like MODE SELECT also fail (K3b cannot
detect CD writers without it) even when the device is opened O_RDWR.
Until this issue has been solved I strongly recommend to stick to
kernel version 2.6.7.
Update: The kernel guys are currently fixing the problem so the next
kernel release should work again. :)
Update 2: The problem is NOT fixed in 22.214.171.124
Update 3: Be aware that kernel 2.6.8 also contains the memory leak
which makes it impossible to write audio cds, even as root."
I myself had no problem using k3b with 2.6.9 and 2.6.7 kernels (and k3b
uses cdrecord to burn CDs).
