Since I was very happy with Debian unstable I installed that again, a bit f testing and everything runs great again, except for k3b.
I have been using k3b without problems since my early RH8 days now so I was really bummed.
What bummed me even more is that I have been unable to get it to run for 3 days now, no matter what version of cdrecord and/or library I throw at it ...
Now I read some stuff about the setuid bit for cdrecord not being needed anymore and I started thinking.
I added myself to the sudoers list and started k3b as root ... and it worked
So I looked again at my debugging output file from k3b but I couldn't find anything in it that gives me a clue about what to do to be able to burn cd's without root access!
Here's the debugging output, could someone give me a clue please?
I'd love to be able to decipher this kind of things but for the moment it's just chinese to me!

Tried to install 2.6.11 but it's nowhere to be found ... so I'm stuck with either 2.6.12 or 2.6.8 which caused known problems with k3b.
