k3b


Okay, I open up K3b and this is what it says:

cdrdao does not run with root privileges
cdrdao needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices and use real time scheduling.This is also true when using SuSE's resmgr.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.

readcd does not run with root privileges
Readcd needs to run with root privileges to be able to access the cd devices unless using SuSE's resmgr with a patched readcd.
Solution: Use K3bSetup to solve this problem.

No support for ATAPI with cdrdao
You will not be able to use all your reading devices as copy sources since there is at least one not configured to use SCSI emulation and your system does not support ATAPI with cdrdao.
Solution: The best and recommended solution is to enable ide-scsi (SCSI emulation) for all devices. This way you won't have any problems.

So.... How do i fix this exactly?

Go to Settings and Settings K3B. It will ask for your root password. Check the settings. (Default is usually good.) Click OK and you're done.

Um, there is no Settings K3B. There's K3B configure... That was a bit confusing.

The last panel under Settings. Did it ask for your root password? K3B Setup

See if you can run it in a term. "k3bsetup". Check to see that you have /opt/kde/bin/k3bsetup.

No. If you can't see K3b settings then you have an earlier version of K3b. As for your problem - other than installing the new version of K3b - you will have to manually change the permission's by actually logging in as root in the X-server and changing the permissions using "right-click" or through the command prompt using "chmod 666". Again, the ATAPI problem is a different problem and K3b (cdrdao) will not work unless you can pass the string "hdc=ide-scsi" to the kernel (i.e. in lilo/grub or in the command prompt when you boot). I should also explain my meaning of "work". I haven't had K3b working with cdrdao and the "ATAPI" setting yet. In other words, maybe someone could enlighten us to a solution to the problem if they know how.

I never did get K3B to work with Suse 9, even though it's part of the installation. Many other users have the same problem. There's an incompatibility with the system, it might even be Suse's kernel.

For this and other reasons, I've switched to Mandrake 9.2. Stuff that I never got running under Suse just seems to work out of the box.

The way I got around this problem running Slackware was set up my user with all root permission in the sudoers file. Then just ran k3b - " sudo k3b " from the command line. All was fine after that.

I didn't want to get to deep into the sudoers file, so I just edited the examples.

My /etc/sudoers
Code:
# User privilege specification
root    ALL=(ALL) ALL

# Uncomment to allow people in group wheel to run all commands
%users  ALL=(ALL)       ALL

# Same thing without a password
%users  ALL=(ALL)       NOPASSWD: ALL
I don't know how safe that is, but it seemed to work for me. Just aslong as your users belongs to the users group, which it most likely will, you should be fine.

To fix you ATAPI problem, just enable scsi-emulation for you burner/cdrom. I have only done this with lilo and not sure how to do it with grub.

Edit your lilo.conf with should be /etc/lilo.conf and add an append line.

append="hdc=ide-scsi"
(note: replace hdc with with your burning or reding device)

If you need to do mulitple drivers, then;

append="hdc=ide-scsi hdb=ide-scsi"
(This is taken from my lilo.conf)

Once that is done, reboot and run k3b again. It shouldn't complain about any errors.

Once in k3b, goto 'Settings > Configure k3b...' Then select 'Devices' down the left hand side. Take note that your device's have now changed from /dev/hdb or /dev/hdc to /dev/sr0 or sr1 etc...

If you use the /dev/cdrom symlink, this will need to be changed. As root, cd to your /dev and do a 'ls -l cdrom'

You should see something along the lines of;

root@localhost:/dev# ls -l cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 8 Feb 16 00:00 cdrom -> /dev/hdb

Now all you have to do is;
rm cdrom
ln -s /dev/sr0 cdrom
(note: Change sr0 to you cdrom)

Good Luck
Kristijan

The scsi emulation is set a utomatically by Suse, but it doesn't always work. That was my problem, and it might be this user's. (I have no way of knowing for sure.)
