okay elsewhere in the board people were making suggestions about burning cd's in the CLI and just skipping the front-ends, whoever mentioned this THANK YOU! its a lot easier in the CLI and i have my aliases set up just how i like em ^_^. anyway my problem is this, cdrecord only works with root, no problem, i just chmod the sucker and WHAM my normal users can use it no problem, however cdrecord uses some other apps (setpriority() and RR-Scheduler) which sometimes causes my CDs to play back a little odd. Like one time, I burned a cd not in root and the first 3 tracks played fine, however the next 2 would occasionally speed up for about half a second and then go back to normal speed (also my anti-shock stopped working around here), after the first 5 the songs wouldn't play anymore :-\. I have burned CDs succefully under a normal user but im not a fan of coasters so id like to get this all straightened out ^_~.
this is the message its showing as I am about to burn a CD as non-root.
Blocks total: 359848 Blocks current: 359848 Blocks remaining: 115752
cdrecord: Operation not permitted. WARNING: Cannot set RR-scheduler
cdrecord: Permission denied. WARNING: Cannot set priority using setpriority().
cdrecord: WARNING: This causes a high risk for buffer underruns.
So how can I make it so the additional apps or whatever can be run by non-root? i tried locate to find them but nothing came up... so im at a loss. any help would be greatly appreciated
