is there an actual answer to this problem? K3b??


Ok, there have been so many posts about K3b acting up, but it seems like no one actually gives a straight answer how to solve this. Every time I try to burn a CD or a DVD in K3b, I get the error "IO error, cannot burn disk" ummm... ok? K3b used to work fine, and then one day POOF, it stopped working. A few posts hinted towards this being a bug in the 2.6.10 kernel, but it used to work, so that can't be right. Besides, I have no clue how to install a patch. Some help would be most appreciated.

if you read the FAQ on the k3b homepage you will see there is a known bug with at least one of the 2.6.x kernels. yes that could be it even if it used to work, other things could of changed.

have you ran an update to see if that might help fix it?

What should I update? I'm pretty sure I have the latest version of K3b (as well as cdrecord and cdrao), and I really don't feel like compiling 2.6.11. How do I install these patches that everyone's been talking about?

if you're referring to a system update, notice that I'm a slackie... we don't have "update" the way that red hat and Debian have it. Altough, I did just download slackpkg, which is supposed to update the system as well. I'll give it a shot.

If you are going to install a patch you need to rebuild the kernel anyway. Why don't you start by making sure you are not using the kernel with the known bug. If you are there is really no option but to use a different kernel if you want to use k3b

Kernal 2.6.8 & 2.6.9 seem to be the ones most commonly associated with that problem

Using 2.6.11 myself with no such problems.

I use 2.6.10, and no one reports bugs like this in 2.6.10 (I googled it)... maybe it's not a bug then?

I made a severe mistake. K3b does not report back IO error (perhaps it was neroLINUX that did this). K3b returns an error that says it is unable to keep the dvd-burner drive shut. The burn works when I run k3b as root. I hear that it has to do with permissions of growisofs...
