    FC6 - K3b only root can burn DVD - fstab fix?


    In FC4 I use K3b to burn DVDs as user. No problem.

    In FC6 I cannot succeed. The first error in K3b is always - cannot eject media
    A work around I found in a forum was run K3b as root.
    $ su -
    # k3b
    With this K3b burns DVDs just fine, ejects, reloads, verifies, ejects.

    Can I change /etc/fstab to allow users to burn DVDs too?
    I tried to copy from FC4's fstab to FC6's fstab:
    /dev/hdc /media/cdrecorder1 auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    But when I insert the DVD I get an error message about cannot mount:
    "/media/cdrecorder1 does not exist"
    I tried again with the name dvdwriter - same error message.
    What's the correct line for fstab or is the problem in HAL or SELinux? (I know very very little about them)
    Thanks.

    Thumbs up

    Problem solved.
    Reading another post I saw someone making a directory in /media.
    So I made the directory
    /media/dvdwriter
    now in /etc/fstab I have
    /dev/hdc /media/dvdwriter auto pamconsole,exec,noauto,managed 0 0
    and K3b works fine.
