eroaster preferences problem


Following the advice on this board, I installed eroaster on my RH9 box. The program looks nice, but I can't figure out the preferences. Specifically, the reader and recorder will not auto-detect and I'm not sure what settings to put in. I can't find any man entry or readme or any good info on the site. I guess the auto-detect is just supposed to work.

If you have red hat 9, and want to burn a CD, just put the blank CD in the drive. If things are set up right, and you're using GNOME, nautilus should open with a "Burn CD" button on the toolbar. Just drop the files and directories you'd like to burn in, then hit "Burn CD".

Nothing to it

If your burning needs are more advanced then yeah, you might need a separate program...... if you can't figure out eroaster then just use something else, the world is flooded with linux cd burners

I understand the simple data cd burning process (which is very nice), but I'm looking for a good way to take mp3s, convert them to wav files and burn them on an audio cd that can be played in my truck. It looks like eroaster has those capabilities, but I'm stuck trying to configure it.

Well, I'm hoping to learn how to configure one program instead of installing several and hoping one of them automagically configures itself. That's too much like Windows.

Well, I figured it out myself. I was suffering serious cranial-rectal syndrome and was trying to set my preferences in the wrong place. You have to use the button on the side, rather the the one on the top. Cool program.
