Question Why won't Gnomebaker burn?


When I first installed Gnomebaker on Karmic K and burned a data disc all was well.

However, when I edited the device node lines in etc/fstab so that I could append multisession CD's, it all went wobbly.

Now the programs closes unexpectedly OR when I do enter the burn process I get the fail output:

I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.
Run "wodim --devices" for details.
NO Rock Ridge present
Disabling Rock Ridge / XA / AA
genisoimage: No such file or directory. Invalid node - '/media/cdrom1/cdda2wav_2_01_01a01_4ubuntu.deb'.


Can anyone give me a rundown of what these terms mean and what to tweak?

hi as no-one has replied for a day and I do not use gnomebaker...altho I have tried it.....lets start the ball rolling

1) edit your fstab back to original....reboot with no disc in optical drive

2) if you want to append to a disc start your burner app.....and append within there please

3) it appears or I am guessing as you did not post your fstab.....that the sym link between your device and the burner is currently not so good.

run

Code:
ls -al /dev/cdrom
ls -al /dev/dvd
ls -al /dev/sr0

(here is mine to give you an idea if you need re-create sym links using root powers)
ls -al /dev/cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Mar 10 19:44 /dev/cdrom -> sr0
Wodim is not finding your burner at the moment.....and it appears your last mount was /media/cdrom and you had deb file on the burnt disc or were burning it.

Thanks Aus9:- I edited fstab back but it wouldn't read the 2nd drive so I changed 0 to 1 in the device node:-

/dev/sr1 /media/cdrom1 udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

Still NO GO!!!

I got output of:- lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2002-01-01 02:57 /dev/cdrom -> sr1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2002-01-01 02:57 /dev/dvd -> sr1
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 2002-01-01 02:57 /dev/sr0

from the code that you gave me.

AND the original error message from my first post whenever I try to append???

hi

according to my eyesight you have a mismatch of fstab to links

change fstab to
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

use root powers to (probably sudo...command if ubuntu)
Code:
sudo rm /dev/dvd*
sudo rm /dev/cdrom*
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/cdrom
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/cdromrw
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/dvd
sudo ln -s /dev/sr0 /dev/dvdrw
reboot

recheck your ls -al bits


2) BTW I still prefer you have NO fstab entry for cdrom....on my system udev takes of mount issues.

Cool Baking.........It's not even toasting!!!

Here are my new nodes:

/dev/sr1 /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0
/dev/sr0 /media/cdrom udf,iso9660 user,noauto,exec,utf8 0 0

Here's what happened:

I: -input-charset not specified, using utf-8 (detected in locale settings)
WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.
Run "wodim --devices" for details.
Error trying to open /dev/scd1 exclusively (Device or resource busy)... retrying in 1 second.

genisoimage: No such file or directory. Cannot open '/dev/scd255'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
genisoimage: No such file or directory. Unable to open previous session image '1,0,0'.

And next:

WARNING: the deprecated pseudo SCSI syntax found as device specification.
Support for that may cease in the future versions of wodim. For now,
the device will be mapped to a block device file where possible.

And as for my bits:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2002-01-01 02:07 /dev/cdrom -> sr1
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 2002-01-01 02:07 /dev/dvd -> sr1
brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 2002-01-01 02:07 /dev/sr0

I will have to knuckle down and do some reading

please delete line for /dev/sr1 in fstab

2) you do not appear to have corrected the links to /dev/sr0

Lightbulb Tried deleting /dev/sr1 in fstab

That line is for my second drive which I use for burning as it's the best of the two.
Without that line Gnomebaker ignores 2nd drive and only acknowledges the first even when there is no disc.
Does this have anything to do with slave status in Bios???
I have 6 flavours of Linux on my HD and so I have same name Burners on all of them. They all behave differently even though they shouldn't.
The only XCDRoast that runs is a Slack Package I built from source.
Brasero appends great in Xubuntu but nowhere else. K3b is just as taciturn on different flavours.

All I want is a Burner on each OS that Imports and Appends easily - Is that too much to ask?!

Should I try building from source for all flavours and Burners???
Would that make a difference???

Maybe try getting Jörg Schilling's cdrtools, http://cdrecord.berlios.de/private/cdrecord.html . Debian forked it because they considered there to be licensing issues (and a big row resulted), creating cdrkit. Most Linux distributions use cdrkit. The forks have diverged (as forks do), so it's possible one may work where the other does not.
