Okay,

Have SLES 9 patched up on some bits 'n pieces hardware..... Logins are
done via the LDAP Client to an eDir and the logins work fine, they can
use VMWare Workstation that I've installed....Problem is K3b...

DVD Burner info is:

UniqueID=90A1.xqu2XhWbeU2
HWClass=cdrom
Model=PIONEER DVD-RW DVR-109
Configured=yes
Available=yes
Needed=no

Slot=0x2
BaseClass=0x106
SubClass=0x2
ProgIF=0x4
DeviceName=DVD-RW DVR-109
VendorName=PIONEER

Serial=EADL071156WL
UnixDevice=/dev/hdc
UnixDeviceList=/dev/hdc /dev/disk/by-path/pci-devices-ide-0:0
/dev/disk/by-id/PIONEER_DVD-RW_DVR-10

/block/hdc
name: hdc
links: disk/by-path/pci-devices-ide-0:0,
disk/by-id/PIONEER_DVD-RW_DVR-10

...which is also mounted as /media/dvdrecorder.

Root can run K3b and see the drive fine, users can't.

WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/usr/lib # cd ../bin
WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/usr/bin # ls -Al cdr*

WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/usr/bin # cd /dev
WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/dev # ls -Al cdrom
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Apr 15 22:07 cdrom -> hdc
WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/dev # ls -Al dvdrecorder
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 3 Apr 15 22:07 dvdrecorder -> hdc
WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/dev # ls -Al hdc
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 22, 0 Jul 1 2004 hdc
WLG-EQ-SERVER-03:/dev #

Not sure if attachments work, but I'm wondering if it is something to
do with groups (or lack there of) that LDAP Users are put into....

Any suggestions on getting LDAP Users to see the DVD Recorder would be
greatly appreciated...
