Burning CDs

  I'm using Fedora 7 with all updates applied (except for a very recent
  Perl update that the update program couldn't find).

  I have been using xcdroast to save photos onto CDs. I always write
  multi-session CDs so that I can keep adding photos until the disk is
  nearly full. Some time over the past 5 months xcdroast seems to have
  stopped working. After some Googling I found that a kernel update was
  (probably) responsible and that it works when run as root. That would
  be
  an acceptable temporary solution, but for me it doesn't work.
  xcdroast
  starts up but never sees a CD in the CD-writer. Asking xcdroast to
  scan
  for devices causes it to hang. This is true for both ordinary users
  and
  root.

  After further investigation I found an alternative CD burning program
  called graveman and tried it. It hangs on startup for both ordinary
  users and root.

  Finally I tried to use the CD burning facility built in to Nautilus.
  The
  trouble now is that I can't find out whether Nautilus will write a
  new
  session to a multi-session CD. There's no option to control that
  AFAICS.
  So I haven't clicked the write-to-disc button to see if it works.

  If necessary I could learn how to use cdrecord (or is it wodim now?),
  but that's far more complicated than I need and I'm fast losing the
  will
  to live. ;-) Any suggestions?
