K3B crashes!


I was using succesfully K3b with Mdk 9.2 until I upgraded it to 10.1.

I can open the software, choose the files to burn but when I want to burn the application crashed and the console shuts with the signal 1.

I tried several times to uninstall and install again k3b but the problem remain the same even with older versions of k3b

Please, HELP!!

K3B 0.11.16
KDE 3.2.3

Thanks in advance

i don't know if this will help
i'm using the same kernel
tried using the ide cdrom interface to burn cd's the way the kernel developers say
it sucked big time and i mean big time.
got wrong configuration info from the drive (thought it was a dvd drive when it's not)
crashed by running out of memory (bad buffer overflow ?)
got it to write audio cd dao once without crashing (quite a triumph) and the disk was half speed on playback.
switched to the old scsi emulation layer and the thing works perfectly..
so i say switch to the ide-scsi interface (boot parameter hdc=ide-scsi )
i wish those kernel developer guys would get their heads out of their egos and realize the
Solaris guy (Shilling i think his name is ) the creator of cdrtools is right about this stuff.
i keep seeing this message on boot
"ide-scsi is deprecated for cd burning! Use ide-cd and give dev=/dev/hdX as device...."
why don't those guys give us all a break on this one ?
they say scsi emulation is ugly cause Shilling doesn't kiss their a$$ and thinks Linux sucks.
but what could be more ugly than what they have created in it's place ?
sorry -- rant over now
