Permissions for burnig cds


So far the only sw I can run as non root is koncd, but I don't like it. When I try to run xcdroast and gnome toaster I have to enter root password. I did a little search here and so I created a new group, changed ownership of cdrecord, cdrdao, mkisofs and readcd to the new group:

chown :new_group cdrecord
(etc)

With ls -l I get
-rws--x--x 1 root new_group

I run both xcdroast and gnome toaster as root and managed some settings (like default speed etc.) But I still can't run them as non root.

I tried to install k3b from rpm and I got error message saying libmad.so.0 is required for k3b. What is this and where do I get this? Search at freshmeat gave me only these 3 results and none of them seems appropriate to me.

Edit: ok, just found out that mad stuff is some mpeg audio decoder. Sicne I never burn audio cds and especially not from crappy mp3s, maybe I don't need that madlib. Do you think it would be ok if I force install without madlib?

you can try editng /etc/fstab
and change
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0
to
/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

try that out

I'm still asked for root password, so I changed back to "owner".

changing fstab won't affect it, you're not mounting the device you're accessing it directly, which has nothign to do with fstab (but putting it as user is probably a good idea anyway)

installing without mad is fine, but you can get it from rpmfind.net no problem

You are taking the second step before the first, at least concerning k3b.

In versions 0.8.x k3b has an assistant, with which you can define groups and users, and generally define who will be allowed to burn, all very comfortable.

(At least in theory. I compiled 0.8.0 and still can't get it to run -- though I have seen the assistant...)
