Default should I bugzilla xcdroast

As I said last week I can not get xcdroast to work in f7 or f8. No
matter what I do xcdroast reports that No CD Loaded. k3b however works.

So before a bugzilla on this problem a question.
Has anyone gotten xcdroast to work on f7 or f8? Does it work on f9?
If it works for you are there any tips you want to share?

What I had to do in FC6 and previous versions was to "chmod +s" on the
XCDRoast executable. I know it's a "security risk" but dang it, I want to be
able to burn CDs without having to be root! I believe the original (as in
tarball version) XCD Roast does not need to be run as root or SUID root.

I found allowing RT priorities and large mlock() in
/etc/security/limits.conf fixed most or all of my disc burning issues
without needing setuid on binaries. YMMV, but something like:

* hard rtprio 100
* hard memlock 32768

and I repeated for "soft" to make sure it was there by default, but I
don't think that's actually necessary. Something similar is/was done
for jack a while back.

I assume you are indicating you ran xcdroast in f7 and f8. In f7 it
can't be done with making the program suid root.
You get the following error:

(process:3813): Gtk-WARNING **: This process is currently running setuid
or setgid.
This is not a supported use of GTK+. You must create a helper
program instead. For further details, see:

http://www.gtk.org/setuid.html

Refusing to initialize GTK+.

I made the changes you indicate . xcdroast still does not work.
You are doing this with f7, f8 or f9?

Any further ideas out there?

This was F8, not tried since I updated to F9 (don't burn many discs).

Did you log out and in again? It's only set when you log in (and
knowing my luck, it's probably been superceded by some PoKicylit or
ConKolesit mechanism.
