Did you search the archives? Sounds like your user doesn't have permissions in the cdrom group -- this has been covered before.

I searched the forums on "abcde" since I thought this was a prog specific problem.

Thanks for your help though, I'll add the user to the cdrom group

EDIT: problem not fixed, getting the same error

Did you log out and log back in after adding the user account to the cdrom group? Group permissions are only assigned at login time.

Also, what happens if you try to use cdparanoia directly, rather than going through abcde?

Yes I logged back in and checked with "groups", just to be sure I was in the cdrom group.

As for cdparanoia, I'll have to have a look at it's syntax first. I'm ripping a CD as root now, so I'll check later.

Thanks,

I have a group called cdrw (well think it isn't user) but do you have access to /dev/sg0 or /dev/sr0, find out what /dev it uses. maybe you need to be part of this in order to rip audio, this operation requires more than just plain cdrom access, can't you find anything in the help of cdparanoia?

It uses /dev/sr0

Code:

lr-xr-xr-x    1 root     root           31 Jun  6  2002 /dev/sr0 -> scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/cd


my groups:
Code:

zu@mountaindew  $ cat /etc/group
root::0:root
bin::1:root,bin,daemon
daemon::2:root,bin,daemon
sys::3:root,bin,adm
adm::4:root,adm,daemon
tty::5:
disk::6:root,adm
lp::7:lp
mem::8:
kmem::9:
wheel::10:root,zu

Well, that didn't solve the problem at all, I was getting the same error

However, THIS is the right solution:

Code:

chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdparanoia


Gonna rip some cd's into sweeet ogg files :D

Greets, and thanks for the help guys

Just had the same problem -- same error, user was part of both cdrom and cdrw groups, didn't work. the chmod fixed it. Just so you know you're not alone ;D
