Default Re: cdrecord setup for debian

With any luck your distro (Sid) comes cd-writing capable because it can be daunting for mere users to configure, for instance requiring a kernel recompile. I've been depending on the ide-scsi module with cdrecord but now I see that method is deprecated with kernel 2.6. On my next recompile I'll have to try the ide-cd module and no scsi support...

Of all cdr debugging commands the best are these two:

dmesg | less
cdrecord -scanbus (as root)
