Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I am having troubles burning with a newly installed eroaster 2.1.0. I checked the permission on /dev/sg and /dev/sg0 and the file to which both of those point (/dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target2/lun0/generic) is crw-rw-rw-. Any ideas why I'm still getting errors? Looks a little something like this:
An error occurred while decoding "BLAH"
Playing MPEG stream from "BLAH"
well that doesn't look like it has anything at all to do with the device itself. probably an error from a program eroaster is shelling out to to convert whatever it is you are doing... and you've not told us what that is...
I'm trying to burn an audio cd with eroaster. I got the above error after adding mp3s to the list of files to burn, and attempting to do so under normal user priveliges. At one point, when logged in as root from a shell prompt, for some reason it still seemed to think I was a normal user, but eroaster proceeded further in the process (which is why I was originally posting about the permissions on /dev/sg and /dev/sg0) and converted the mp3s to wav, but then would not complete the process giving the output below...
cdrecord: Drive does not support SAO recording
cdrecord: Try -raw option
cdrecord: Illegal write mode for this drive
I'm not sure what to do about this output as I have not found any options about SAO recording (there is one for DAO although) and I have no idea how I would use the -raw option
"Playing MPEG stream from /mnt/windows/My Music/Temporary/(pink_floyd)-dark_side_o_the_moon-01-speak_to_me_(breate).mp3"
But it doesn't play anything! If I play the same file through XMMS it works. I'm sure it isn't a corrupt mp3 as I've tried it with mp3s that I have ripped. I'm sure it isn't permissions as I can burn data CDs.
Freshmeat shows LAME as a recommended under dependencies, I don't have LAME installed could this be the problem?
anjo, that is presumably a problem with your choice of burner. You might want to consider contacting the author and asking him about it, as it's going to be using standard options for cdrecord which will not work with your drive.
dizzy... please do not tag questions on to others in future, it gets confusing. either way, how did you install eroaster without one of the dependencies? either way, you should normally *need* lame, i think it's only used to convert mp3 to wav IF you choose to do it that way. normally it uses a combination of Sox and mpg123 so make sute they work. and are you running this from a terminal or just a silly little icon on a desktop? If it hangs you're probably missing out on a lot of information that would be present in a terminal.
"dizzy... please do not tag questions on to others in future"
My problem was the same as the problem which started this thread, I hoped to help by providing more information, and I believe that I have!
"how did you install eroaster without one of the dependencies?"
Lame is not required but it is recommended.
If Eroaster will convert mp3s to wav for recording to cd as root but not as user then maybe lame is not in your users path or you don't have the right permissions for lame. This probably won't make any difference though as the cd writer doesn't support the right format.
I've got the same problem as you again Eroaser tells me to use -raw but I can't find an option to do that. Back to the command line and a little perl scripting I guess.

Thats the output from the command line. I apparentlye am lacking lame, but there is no problem with it converting mp3s to wav. It also looks like there's a problem with the Python code or something
i think that's probably an error from the version of cdrecord you have installed... you do have it installed i take it...? that error pops up when it is trying to work out the version you have, run "cdrecord -version", and see if it matches enough to mine:
