Start k3b from the command line. When it hangs, post what output you are getting on the command line.

i find it funny that you posted and asked that...why don't you type that in the terminal, cause 1 of 2 things will happen
1) it will say bad command
2) k3b will run..

Yes I meant just typing "k3b" in the terminal. That way you get a lot of info on the terminal where you start the program.
Any way, what's the output when "k3b" has frozen?
You can also subscribe to the k3b mailing list. They have more info on this sort of thing.

If I am understanding right, the k3bsetup is hanging on step 5, adding users, did you add any users? Is there a group defined in CD Writing Group (in my case it the group name is cdrecording)? Do you have the checkbox checked to have K3B make the changes to cdrecord and cdrdao? Another thought, try running setup as root, maybe the user ID you are using does not have permissions to modify permissions ;-) Hope that helps....

You are running k3bsetup under gnome, aren't you? There's a known (and not very well publicised) bug in k3bsetup - it freezes under gnome exactly as you are describing.

k3b itself runs fine under gnome.

k3b setup will run under KDE, and possibly other managers.
