X-CD-Roast requires the proprietary "prodvd" version of cdrecord to burn
DVDs. It's also prone to complaining about the need for ide-scsi even on
2.6-kernel based systems that don't need it. I'd switch to using k3b if
I was you (yes, I know it's a KDE app but it's by far the best GUI for
this and it works just fine in gnome).
