k3b won't burn cd's


Hi,I have SuSE 10 and can not get K3b to burn a cd. I have 2 drives a DVD rom and a CD burner. on starting I get a message saying: Disable automounting and replace /etc/fstab entries with old fashioned ones. I tried a live cd of Linspire and it burned no bother so the hardware is ok. can someone tell me how to go about replacing the /etc/fstab entries and how exactly to add burn privileges. I logged in as root and still could not burn. I have uninstalled the version that came on the Installation cd as set-up was missing and downloaded the latest version. after attempting to burn a cd you can not close the program down it locks up and stays until I restart the PC, It says "writing" or "preparing to write" but does neither. thanks Adrian

Is the temp folder it is set to use big enough?
Maybe it runs out of space and locks up.

I guess you have to stop your autofs daemon from running (i.e. stop automount), so your burner can be used by K3b.

Hi, I checked the system services runlevel and its set to "no" I unchecked the boxes 3,5 in expert mode (not sure if that was right?) tried to burn again but just the same, below is the debug output. how do I check if the temp folder is big enough? the file I tried to burn was only 380k.

Download the source for the latest version of cdrdao and compile it. Make sure your permissions for your burner are enabling a user to burn.

Then use cdrdao with k3b. I use Mandriva 2006 and this worked for me. I can't get cdrecord to work though.

thanks Jon, having tried and failed to get the burner working for weeks I have just replaced suse with pclinuxOS as I need the cd burner, hope it works there. It actually worked ok with a Linspire live cd. will let you know what happens. Adrian

I think the problem is with the kernel, not the distro. Sebastien Trueg pointed me to the new version of cdrdao.
