** WARNING **: No /usr/bin/readcd installed


umm when root tries to bring it up it says a file is missing

readcd

are you saying that by simply removing the config file from my home directory
the file will no longer be important?

I'm trying to figure out where the file comes from
if I can find it i can put it back in

at the terminal, type
which readcd
readcd is part of the cdrtools package with cdrecord.
it is probably on your system, but the path is perhaps
incorrect in the xcdroast config.
on my system.
ls -l /usr/bin/readcd
0 lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 22 Mar 13 2003 /usr/bin/readcd -> /opt/schily/bin/readcd

that means that readcd really exists in /opt/schily/bin/
and /usr/bin/readcd is a symlink to that file.
you could create one with
ln -s /opt/schily/bin/readcd /usr/bin/readcd
assuming your file is in the same place.

or start xcdroast and change the path setting to readcd.

$ which readcd
/usr/bin/which: no readcd in (/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/home/warren/bin)


its just not there

any where

no sym link
no broken sym link
nothing

guess one of those other packages I installed removed it

which just checks the path.
find / -type f -name readcd -print
will search your whole system for it.

'which' will find all files in your $PATH. So if you can try the name of the command, you can use which too to locate it.

'whereis' looks a little deeper in case you need to find a command.

If you install your software somewhere else then /usr/local/, or /opt/kde/ (though I would recommend installing things in those folders), you should either:
- create links to make them appear somewhere else too
- extend your $PATH. Every shell will look in $PATH to find the paths. I've written an shell-script to add all /opt/*/bin folders to my path, and it's called automatically at login.

seams like that has created an sub-hierarchy... Does a src-rpm require any parameters to install the program in the /usr/ or /usr/local/ hierarchy?

cp it to the place Xcdroast was looking for it at

and I explore my box a lot !!!

installed and works - but sloooooooow!!!

i installed now the recent version on a suse 8.2 machine. this works really fine. But i tried now copying a cd....and i wondered.
how can take a 60min audio-cd 20 minutes for 47% of READING???
My burner reads 24x and burns 8x. What did i do false???

btw EXCELLENT TOOL!!! EXACTLY WHAT I WAS SEARCHING!!!
and for the rights: login as root and run the install-program after doing rpm -i for having the right rights

whansard is correct - keep in mind these are hidden pref files so -
ls -la
and you should be able to see it then.
[edit]
hmm he remove his post - disregard ls -la
