kernel 2.6.9 and K3B user problem redux

Hi all.

It would appear that user/root permissions issues seen with kernel 2.6.8 have returned to K3B with kernel 2.6.9. Using exactly the same setup as before upgrading to kernel 2.6.9, I found as a regular user that I could not erase or write CD-RWs. As root I could.

My "solution": sudo k3b

Regards,

Win

Re: kernel 2.6.9 and K3B user problem redux

Yes I've read this complaint on several website/fora. I, however, do not have and never had a problem with burning. I also use k3b btw.

My rule in udev.permissions:

hd*:root:users:660

Hi LB06.

I've had the udev.permissions set as:

hda:root:cdrom:660
hdd:root:cdrom:660

The user is a member of the cdrom group. This worked using udev for kernel 2.6.8.  It doesn't work for 2.6.9, however.

Regards,

Win

apart from this "solution" isn't there a real solution?

i have the same problem, since i upgrade to kernel 2.6.9-ARCH, i can only burn cd's as root... i don't use k3b a lot so it's not a real problem, but still i'd like to find a solution...

any clue as to where to start looking?

thanx,
