Cannot burn on FC2 with cdrecord:


I recently set up a new HP computer with FC2. Now I'm trying to get everything working properly -- what I have left to do is determine why I don't have sound and why I can't burn CDs. This post is about the problem burning CDs.

I have started a coaster collection. I now have a set of 5 coasters and counting. I've included the rather verbose output of my attempt to burn a cd below. I really appreciate any suggestions! Note: I tried setting the speed to 4, and it didn't work.

First, a little information about my system:
uname -a

Update:
I haven't verified this personally, but I have 2.6.5-1 on FC2 and I am unable to burn more than one track at a time. I turned off the "autoplay" "feature" of gnome (which I believe is implemented via magicdev). No joy. I wonder if the 5-1 kernel has the same problem? Anyone else experience this problem?

Then, I found on another list that kernel 2.6.8.1 is broken and does not allow cdrecord to work in suid root mode according to Jörg Schilling.

I'm considering running up2date and updating my kernel to see if that helps. The fact that I can consistently burn one track leads to conclusion that its a software problem, not hardware.

Seven coasters and counting.

funny that - I had no problem in kernel 2.4, but alot of problems in 2.6 using cdrecord - I also get the cannot fixate disk - my command is something to this effect:

cdrecord dev=/dev/hdd -speed=4 /home/directory/toburn

Regards

Well... I have my trusty Toshiba laptop as backup, running RH8... and it burns great so for now at least that's my workaround. I could burn with FC1. The kernel on my laptop:

Code:
$ uname -a
Linux ***** 2.4.18-14 #1 
Wed Sep 4 13:35:50 EDT 2002 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
I've updated the core twice since I started this thread on the suspect HP computer. I'm gonna go sit down and see if it will now burn a cd.

OK up to eleven coasters from eight. I suppose the folks working on the cdrecord portion of Fedora just don't give a rat's @$$ if we can burn cd's or not. They broke something having to do with sudo-ing to use SCSI devices or something... I found a thread on bugzilla.redhat.com that suggests one can burn cd's if one upgrades to FC3.

See the quote at the top of this page:

funny stuff.
