RE: Cdrecord and linux 2.6.12
Lucky you. I did not even get so far to spoil the CD. K3b permanently fails to burn any data CD for me with 2.6 kernel.
It keeps reporting something about failing mkisofs or cdrecord, operation not permitted or so.
The same setup did work fine in the past with 2.6 kernels. Now, with fully up-to-date SID K3b is unusable.
I tried ETCH with 2.6.12 with similar result. I think cdrecord and/or mkisofs are terribly broken now.
I am slowly getting fed up with the current quality of the SID/2.6 thing. As far as I remember it has never been so bad as it is now.
