cd burning


I'm trying to burn a music cd but everytime i tried to use a graphical cd burning client,it gives me an error.So i checked the book my redhat came with.In the book,it says i have to load some modules and something about the kernel which is very confusing and hard to understand.If someone here burnt a cd with redhat and can help me,please reply.Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Think you are talking about the scsi emulation module (scsi-ide). You can edit the lilo or grub conf file, whichever is appropriate, and add append="hdx=ide-scsi" to enable the emulation at the boot time.

Cheers,
Senthil

maybe a permissions problem. see if cdrecord has read permissions for other.

The excellent k3b burning software seems to only run with root permissions.

You may try opening a terminal window and doing su -m follwed by whatever command you use to start the CD program. This'll run it as root with the current logged in environment preserved.

i'm not sure how to get koncd working. i myself haven't gotten it to work. i'm using xcdroast right now which requires cdrecord, cdda2wav, and mkisofs. xcdroast takes care of setting up permissions for you and all you need to do is add your user to the group, xcdwrite. run it the first time as root and set it to run in non-root mode. save the configuration file and then run it in your user account. save a configuration file for your user and you're good to go. i've tried k3b myself and successfully compiled and installed it, but i fall into the minority group where running it causes a complete machine freeze. i don't know how many people here use koncd, but you may want to try some other cd burning (front ends) programs out there.

Is /usr/bin in your PATH? It usually installs there.

If not, give the full path to lame

/usr/bin/lame <rest of command flags, etc>
