"linux burning software open source" what's the best out there


I do not run kde or gnome on my system, I run fluxbox, and am trying to keep my system small, and clean for a graphical desktop. Does anyone have any opinion on what the best graphical cd burning frontend is.

without KDE K3B is out for you, the only thing that comes to mind is xCDroast

thanx for the reply. The problem I have with xcdroast is that you can't drag an mp3 drop it, and burn an audio cd. You have to convert them into wave files first. So I'd prefer something a little more developed than xcdroast. Is xcdroast even being developed anymore?

Thanks I'll try graveman, and it looks just like k3b in terms of all the functions it can perform. Good to know there is a lightweight frontend
