One of the known bugs in "wodium" is that it tries to keep you missinformed
about the fact that you need root privileges in order to write CDs on Linux.

The official cdrecord does not have this problem, it informs you early about
missing root privileges.

I recommend you to get a recent original from:


compile it and install it suid root. Readcd and cdda2wav also need root
privileges in order to work.

BTW: at the Linuxtage in Chemnitz, I got a hint from Chris Friedhoff that
recent linux kernel seem to include a method that could help to avoid root
privileges. He told me that he is going to provide a patch for cdrtools
and I am waiting on his next reply....
