Comment 6 for bug 213215

Hey thanks! It's been awhile since I've checked that bug report. They've asked if I've had the same issue with newer versions of Ubuntu.. but the PC gets used a lot and I just haven't had the time for a complete new install etc. (it's planned though).

I added that to my Software Sources on Gutsy and also added the Signing Key as in the instructions. After updating the Sources, do I just have to install/reinstall "cdrecord" and "mkisofs", or is there also supposed to be a "CDRTools" package that should be installed to replace "CDRKit"?

When I finally get around to it I plan to reinstall the PC with a clean install of Lucid Lynx (or possibly Hardy Heron). I just have so much other stuff to do that I'm still running Gutsy for now, and have been dual booting WinXP when I need to burn something (which is a pain when I'm working on something and have to boot XP just to burn a disc). I haven't tried burning with either Hardy or Lucid, so I thought I'd ask.. Do those versions have the same issues?

Thanks again!
