If I remember RedHat 7.3 came with a version of XCDRoast that didn't work very well.

Download the newest version from their homepage and you can get one that works in non-root mode.

i did download it i had 7.2 and downloaded it from the homepage and then i upgraded to 7.3 and it fux0red things all around i actually posted about this before and i searched for it and couldn't find it so i posted it again then i searched again and found the old posting which has "xhost +localhost" and that works but it is only a temporary solution because the next time i go to use xcdroast it doesn't work and i have to do it all over again and its been so long this time i just plain forgot that command heh

Put this in your user's .xinitrc file
Code:
# Allow root to use X
xhost +local:

There is a brand new version - alpha 14. I would strongly suggest getting it. A big improvement over previous versions.

I dl'd the alpha version and it keeps telling me I must run xcdroast as root to first configure it.

So I get the xhost +local: going and run as root (via console; cant get it to run as GUI app)
It says:

** WARNING **: No /usr/local/bin/cdrecord installed

** WARNING **: (Invalid lib-directory? Check -l option)

I ran with the -l option

says:

-c (config directory) (currently: ~/.xcdroast)
-l (lib directory) (currently: /usr/local/lib/xcdroast-0.98)

i can run cdrecord --help and it lists all the help functions. So I have cdrecord installed, it just isn't linked correctly I guess.

Anyhow, I dl'd the new cdrtools (latest) and was wondering what would be the best method of installation?
compile as user and make install as root?
or do complete compile and install as root?

Tnx

p.s.
Running Slack9 latest.

I usually don't bother using the gui as the command line is so handy.

If you use kde, open a console, and type kdesu xcdroast
xcdroast will open up. You then need to activate the non-root mode, which involves clicking the button to change non-root mode. Then save configuration. Then open as a regular user. Should be straightforward.

kdesu xcdroast doesn't open up xcdroast.
I has a popup saying to type in the root pw and such... do so and hit ok popup goes away, and... nothing else happens.

This is ridiculous. I've tried Xcdroast, k3b, and just plain cdrecord from the console.

ALL of these are freakishly coarse. Why isn't there a plain 'ol burning utility that doesn't require soo much freaking work?
I've put more time into finddling with burning programs than I have with building an entire embedded system. That's just not right.

XCDROAST requires you to run it via root initially to set its settings... only it doesn't let you run it as root. So I tried the kdesu xcdroast and nothing happend after I entered the root pw.

K3B allows you to fully setup everything really easy like.. however when you try to burn, it can't find the drive. But it finds it in the setup. Go figure.

cdrecord at the prompt is nice and plentiful when all you need to do is type for 1 or maybe 3 filenames, but if I want to sift through a butt load of schematics that I'm working on, I don't want to have to do all of that by hand and console.

Somethings just need a click for ease of use. I like the K3B setup as far as its GUI interface. Nice, simple, and a clean file browser that allows you to search for what you want. But it will not hold the settings for the burner.

hey uh DaFrEQ dood try typing this into your shell "xhost +localhost" minus the quotations of course it works for me the only problem is if you reboot you have to do it again which i find pretty stupid i'm looking for a way to just totally ignore the root thing altogether and i'm not SO stupid i don't know how to click the non root mode and add myself as the user and click save configuration or settings or whatever it says.. that just simply doesn't work i think my problem is with the upgrade from redhat 7.2 to redhat 7.3 because when i use other things like ark it asks me for the root pass immediately which it never used to do with 7.2 .. but really give the "xhost +localhost" a try and lemme know if it works.. if it doesn't then i don't know what to tell you

ok.
What i did was
in usr consolexhost +localhost
then:
kdesu xcdroast
popup window asking for su pw. once pw is entered, program shuts down and nothing else happens.

I also tried:
same as above except instead of kdesu xcdroast
in root console
xcdroast
but that returns same thing. acts like it's trying to start up then... nothing. drive activity stops after about 5 to 10 seconds.

samething with the k3b proggie.
