2.6.8 and CD recording

Uhm.. This not only affects CD burning but also CD ripping when using CD-RW drives. At least cdparanoia now only runs with root priviliges using my SCSI burner. Setting it suid root does work, but this is no solution for e.g. "Grip" because any GTK+ application does stop working if suid root ("This process is currently running setuid or setgid. This is not a supported use of GTK+."). Doh.

Has anyone noticed that scanning doesn't work for users either?
Even though the hotplug scripts are setting the correct device permissions
in /proc/bus/usb it only works for root.
I do most things from the command line so I can work around it with sudo,
but every CD burning or scanning program that accesses the devices needs
a separate entry. I guess anything that uses the scsi subsystem is similarly
affected - my sudoers file is growing rapidly:(

Retract that last post. Forgot to add user to scanner group. Duh!
BTW new version of cdrecord (I'm using 2.0+a38-1 from Debian Unstable)
allows users to burn CDs if suid root.

Did this thing get fixed already or is it still a problem?

I am using and have some strange problems with my dvd-rw (can burn cds=no, can burn cd/rw=yes =) and have stumblead upon this post. I wouldnt like going to 2.6.9 for now, nvidia is broken there, but am interested if burning works under 2.6.9 or what exactly am i supposed to do to get it working while not being root?

The same problems exist for 2.6.9 as the rest of the series.

Patches do exist for the NVidia binary driver(6629) that allow it to work properly in linux 2.6.9. I am currently running 2.6.10-ac12 with the NVidia driver.
