about '[opensuse] k3b only as root':

/dev/sr0 is my burner. I give universal write to it. It works for
me as
a user. When I reboot the permissions have reset? How do I burn as
normal user? I.m on xfce under 11.1
Check out /etc/udev/rules.d -- Those files determine the
owner/group/permissions/symlinks/etc. for files in /dev.

The fix is in HAL, and we will release an online update for it next week.

Novell bug is 40825.

Ciao, Marcus

Has the update been released yet?

Thanks L.
