X-CD-Roast + cdrecord

I just installed X-CD-Roast, and it said that I didn't have cdrecord installed in /usr/local/bin, so I went and installed cdrecord, and it still gives me the same error message.

The way I installed Roast:
make install

The way I installed cdrecord:
gmake install

not really sure, but xcdroast does have more dependancies than just cdrecord.
cdda2wave, cdrecord, and mkisofs. there's also the xcdroast-devel, but i don't think that's required. anyway, maybe order of install matters or something. try installing the dependancies first and then recompile/reinstall xcdroast.

is cdrecord in /usr/local/bin? See where is it using
which cdrecord
(you might have to do this as root; not sure) If it is installed somewhere else, just create a symlink:
ln -s {whereever cdrecord is} /usr/local/cdrecord
and Roast should stop complaining.

The question is where cdrecord installs by default (it used to be /opt/Schilly), and is it in the PATH. If you read the docs, it says the way to install is ----
1. Gmake
2. Gmake INS_BASE=/usr/local install **** or wherever *** I use INS_BASE=/usr
