Help installing xcdroast


Hullo... i'm trying to install xcdroast for mandrake 9.1. it fails, telling me that it needs cdrecord, mkisofs and cdda2wav... all of which are installed as far as i know. I just finished installing them through the mandrake control center. (is that bad? should i use the rpm command instead??)

I'm a bit of a newb to the linux world so go easy on me. Also, any tips or links to resources on how to use cdrecord on the command line would be appreciated too.

big THANKS to anyone who answers

most probably xcdroast is looking for a different version of cdrecord, mkisofs and cdda2wav?

use the CLI instead. references can be found here:

but of course, http://www.google.com/linux/ knows what you need.

You can query the RPM database to see if cdrecord, mkisofs and cdda2wav are in fact installed.
Use the following command (do it for all three).
Code:
rpm -qa | grep cdrecord
