dvd recorder doesn't work with kernel 2.6.8.1


Hi. I have recently upgraded to kernel 2.6.8.1. Everything has worked so far except that I am no longer able to make CDs. Here is the output of eroaster when I erase a CD when I was still
using kernel 2.6.8-rc3-mm1 (and probably even earlier with kernel 2.6.7)

I'm pretty sure I've kept the same kernel configuration in both cases.
I have the following turned on in the ATAPI and SCSI sections:

enhanced IDE/MFM/RLL support
IDE/ATA-2 support
use multi-mode as default
IDE/ATAPI CDROM support
IDE/ATAPI FLOPPY support
generic/default IDE support
PCI IDE support
sharing PCI IDE interrupts
generic PCI IDE
(the rest are more or less machine specific)
(nothing is turned on in the SCSI section)


I don't think this will help much, but here's the output of lspci:

Any ideas on what the problem is? I tried checking the change log for the kernel and
couldn't find anything that might have changed since when it was working.

Thanks for any help,
Yale

There's a problem with the kernel where you can't burn cds if you're not root. (at least according to the k3b website which was not fixed in 2.6.8.1, so maybe you can use your old 2.6.7 kernel for now)

Yes, it finally works. I never thought about using cdrecord as root since I always tried avoiding to login as root. I guess I'll have to live with it for now.
Thanks for the info.

using CD-record

hi,

Some distro's (e.g. SuSE) tampered with the code of cdrecord to make it suitable for DVD. As I see your output it seems this is also the case with your version :

Cdrecord-Clone 2.01a34 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 Jörg Schilling
NOTE: this version of cdrecord is an inofficial (modified) release of cdrecord
and thus may have bugs that are not present in the original version.
Please send bug reports and support requests to <cdrtools@packages.debian.org>.
The original author should not be bothered with problems of this version.

I suggest you download the source-code (e.g. from ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub) and recompile it.
You can also use cdrdao but it's more complicated to use. You can also replace mkisofs : the source-code is in the same package.

Greetings,

Ronald
