X-CD-Roast 0.98alpha14: on RH9


I am very sorry to bother you
I'm having some difficulty with the non-root-user mode

I logged in first as root
then changed to non-root mode
placed myself and the other users in the "allow list"
clikd> save configuration
got the pop-up " configuration saved"
clikd> ok
clikd> exit

clikd> icon on menu ( also put in "$ xcdroast" on CLI)
same message "Access Denied : ask superuser to put you on the allowed list "

oh yea the message comes up and the hour glass never stops

Hi,

If you are logging in as root, then changing to a non root user and doing your config changes wouldn't that mean you aren't adding the users as a super user.

What happens in your log in as root and do all of your xcdroast config changes? Does it still give you the same problem?

I had heaps of problems with xcdroast, that's why i changed to the command line. If you haven't tried it, it takes about 15 mins to learn and it is SO much better : )

Good luck anyway.

Well the Manual on the webpage sid the first time to start it as root then change to no-root mode
set up user lists for permissions
save configuration
and it would allow use as non-root
in fact this is the only reason i upgraded from the previous version

inconvenient
but it works

Question Maybe its this

What might be the problem is this:

if you've created the directory for the iso's as root, then you will not be able to read & write to it as a user. The solution, if this is the problem, is to make sure the directory's ownership is correct. If it belongs to root, then it won't work when you are using X-CDROAST as a user. If the directory is owned by 'yourusername', then it will work when you are logged in either as root or as that user.

If you don't want to try changing attributes and permissions, the easiest way to do it is like so:

as a user, (not as root) create a directory. (maybe call it /home/'yourusername'/BURNER or something)

Then go back to root and start up X-CDROAST and select it when you are configuring the program.

Hope this helps,

Harry

ok I found what I did wrong

I set the users up in the left hand screen on the menu
on the right hand screen was " hosts allow " it was blank and had the "only allow hosts on the list option " checked
works fine now

thanks all
