When I upgraded to kernel 2.6.6, I had a few issues with
emerge nvidia-kernel, so had installed the drivers manually & certain OpenGL files hadn't been installed (that happens with an
emerge nvidia-glx). Due to these chain of events
emerge k3bhappily failed citing some GL errors & this after about 10-15 MB of getting k3b and its dependencies.
Even after a couple of
emerge syncs, the problem persisted &
net-analyser/xtraceroutefailed with the same error. Decently did an
emerge nvidia-glxto rectify that (after foolishly posting a bug note on bugs.gentoo.org), & everything was fine. Problem was all these chaps needed the OpenGL headers, which weren't there.
First up, k3b has a nice Interface, maybe a bit too much like Nero's Wizard mode, but lots more options. KDEish looks, but who cares :)
This has turned out to be one of those decisions in life that I'll maybe never regret. Just did an On-the-fly burn of Knoppix 3.4 & that went thru fine :) (This is after I botched up a couple using
cdrecordon the command line. k3b does a way more decent job with
cdrecordthan I do). I can now proudly say that whatever the hurry, I won't switch to Winblows to burn stuff. Someday I'll master (read I'll stop creating coasters with)
PS : Everyone's getting GMail Accounts. Moi's dying for one too.
PPS : louiswu, Give k3b a try :) Its worth it!!!!
