I haven't used xcdroast, so I can't say. Does it work without SCSI
K3b gives me warnings about permissions on the cdrecord binaries, but I've
discovered that I don't need to pay any attention. IIRC, there was some
change in kernel 2.8.1 that caused the K3b developers to add the helpful
warning; I think this was changed back in some subsequent kernel version.

Does xcdroast use cdrecord to actually write the disks? cdrecord has and
still has some useless messages about "unresolved issues" in Linux "2.5",
which now represent nothing more than a bad attitude on the part of its
developer. There were no "issues" and there are no "issues".
To the author's credit, cdrecord is still an excellent program.
