Bug Description

wodim and icedax complain "Cannot open SCSI driver!" when scanning for devices even though nautilus detects and reads the CDs perfectly.

Below is a transcript of what I tried:

tudor@kneet:~$ wodim -scanbus
wodim: No such file or directory.
Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

tudor@kneet:~$ sudo wodim --devices
wodim: No such file or directory.
Cannot open SCSI driver!
For possible targets try 'wodim --devices' or 'wodim -scanbus'.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.
For IDE/ATAPI devices configuration, see the file README.ATAPI.setup from
the wodim documentation.

tudor@kneet:~$ sudo adduser tudor cdrom

tudor@kneet:~$ sudo icedax --devices
icedax: No such file or directory. Cannot open '-1'. Cannot open SCSI driver.
icedax: For possible targets try 'wodim -scanbus'.
Use the script scan_scsi.linux to find out more.
Probably you did not define your SCSI device.
Set the CDDA_DEVICE environment variable or use the -D option.
You can also define the default device in the Makefile.
For possible transport specifiers try 'wodim dev=help'.

And this is again a problem that disappears if you
upgrade to recent original software from:

ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/

http://cdrecord.berlios.de/

instead of using an unmaintaned fork.....

@Schily:

That wouldn't be an "upgrade" since it's not in the Ubuntu repository.

If I want to complain about *your* version, then I'll do so on *your*
package, thank you very much. It was *you* that changed your license to
CDDL, and that's what I consider a fork just as much as cdrkit.

Until you want contribute your fixes as GPL (the basis for Debian),
please quit trolling on other packages bug reports.
