Hi Paul - I have just been looking at this bug report of yours, which I
assume is the one at

I have followed much of this thread because I use k3b daily to burn DVDs
(and the occasional CD) with no problems at all with it or, presumably,
with its various external applications (wodim etc).  I have been
wondering if I could identify exactly what is 'different' about your
setup  nd causing you these problems.  My Lenny installation is up to
date and everything has been installed with aptitude from Debian and
Debian-multimedia repositories, so of I can help by providing version
numbers or anything then please ask in this list but I suspect they will
be exactly what apt-cache policy for lenny would show.

Anyway, in your bug report you say you "took out" genisoimage, but then
go on to say you were able to successfully use mkisofs.  However, on my
system, mkisofs is just a symlink to genisoimage.   In fact the package
description for mkisofs says "This is a dummy package to ease the
transition to genisoimage, the fork of mkisofs.  It provides a mkisofs
symlink to genisoimage for compatibility purposes.  Please use
genisoimage instead of mkisofs."

I only mention this because it does look a bit confusing but maybe I'm
missing something.  If so, sorry for the noise.
