Question xcdroast - user permissions


Hi Gurus,

I installed the latest x-cdroast with rpm s. I started it with "root" for first time to enable "user-mode ". Everything was fine until I put a ls -l in my home directory.

My user name is "kar" and group "chemie".

I was shifted from group "chem" to "xcdwrite". I searched the archive and edited my /etc/group file:

users:x:100:
nobody:x:65533:nobody,root
nogroup:x:65534:nobody,root
xcdwrite:x:500:
cdrecording::101:kar
sshd:x:65:sshd

and removed the "kar" from "cdrecording::" line; logged in again and found I came back to group "chemie".

But now if I launch xcdroast - it says "I dont have privileges to run xcdroast". I can understand this is consequence of editing /etc/group.

How do I stay in group "chem" and also run xcdroast. Or is it like "Have Your Cake & Eat it Too"?

Many thanks,
Kar
