    Burning dvd's with K3b is not perfect in Ubuntu 9.10 (64 bit). See screenshot.

    My multisession data is however burned successfully despite the error and despite the progress bar showing less than 100%.
    This only happens with multisession - starting out with a blank dvd is fine.
    The log viewer shows this under messages:-

    UDF-fs: No VRS found
    Dec 28 12:43:10 walter-desktop kernel: [15265.021537] UDF-fs: No partition found (1)
    Dec 28 12:47:32 walter-desktop kernel: [15527.028449] warning: `growisofs' uses 32-bit capabilities (legacy support in use)

    Seems to be a fairly common problem with the suggested solution being to change the /dev/scd0 line in fstab by
    placing iso9660 before udf.

    Brasero is an absolute no-no in Karmic. Try blanking a disc. From what I see you will get many lines like this
    in log viewer messages:-
    VFS: busy inodes on changed media or resized disk sr0
    (The disc does however blank)

    Another glitch is that the 'Remove' option for items added to a project is greyed out.

    None of these problems were present in Jaunty.

    What I like about CentOS is that everything works - most likely because we the users are not being turned
    into guinea pigs every 6 months and can get on with our work.

    BTW. What does the '+' stand for in the cdrom permissions ..
    ~$ ls -l /dev/sr0
    brw-rw----+ 1 root cdrom 11, 0 2009-12-28 08:28 /dev/sr0
    ~$

    Regards

    Good find - will check. Only thing is I can successfully burn a multisession dvd despite the error message as mentioned before. Does seem inter-related though - will do a few more tests. Thanks GlobalForce.

    PS - All that plus indicates is the use of an extended acl.

    =extended access control. Now I know what acl is, but, in a nutshell, why would it be needed in that context i.e. my cdrom permissions ? Sorry for 'nitpicking' :argh:
