    Subjectcdrecord dev=ATA cannont scanbus as non-root
    Hi all...

    I'm trying to get out of the mess that cd burning looks like nowadays in

    As I use a 2.6.x kernel, I folowed this hints:
    - no suid cdrecord, it uses capabilities
    - make the burner owned by console user (pam)

    cdrecord burns ok using dev=/dev/burner, but I can't get GUI tools to
    burn using the /dev interface. All of them try to load ide-scsi, and
    do a scan based on ATAPI:.
    Some tools try to scan with dev=ATA:x:y:z, but that does not work as
    normal user.

    How can I make 'cdrecord dev=ATA -scanbus' work as non-root ?
