CDRom (Let me try again)


I want User to have access to the CDROM, so I put the user in the CDRom group. (is that how it is done?)

But, when User installed from the CDROM, he could not access the directory created during the installation process. The directory has User as the owner, and root as the group.

I apparently did something wrong. Why did User get locked out of the directory that was created? Was I correct to put User in the CDRom group?

This is on a Debian 3.0 system

thank you.

Could you specify what you want to do?
I got debian and can read and write datacd's as user.But there is apparently no way I can read musiccd's with the same drive.
That only applies to certain programs - with xcdroast (cdrecord frontend) everything is working.
With programs that use cdparanoia no go.

What command have you used to add User to cdrom group? It looks there's something wrong (maybe your User is now in root group?)

I used the graphical user manager. I selected the user, and put a checkbox next to CDRom.

I think what happened here was that when I created the User, it was put in main group "root". Next time I create a user, I will either create another group, or place it in another user group. FOr some reason, Debian defaulted to placing the new user in group root...
