After receiving an update for Ubuntu Gustsy Gibbon v7.10, CD and DVD
burning is now broken (other versions may also be affected).  I remember
seeing the original cdrtools files listed as being replaced or removed
during the update, but didn't know the problems it was going to cause so
I allowed the update to proceed.  After the update, all I am able to
burn are coasters.  Initially I thought K3B was the cause, but Brasero
and Nautilus also have the same problems and are unable to successfully
burn CDs or DVDs properly (I am writing this from a different PC so I
don't have the error messages at the moment).  After doing some research
on this problem, I found that the original cdrools utilities (which
worked and were able to successfully burn both CDs and DVDs on the
affected PC prior to the update) had been replaced with a broken fork
(which explains the messages I saw regarding replacing/removing these
files during an update).  The presence of the broken version can be
confirmed by checking the Programs being used for burning within K3B or
from the command line.  The link below to the cdrecord website has some
information regarding this broken fork and how to confirm the version
installed.  Last time I checked, this problem has not been corrected
through an update and fixing it manually is not something I know how to
do yet.  This needs to be fixed through an update.  Hopefully this
broken fork has not found it's way into the upcoming Hardy Heron


Thanks, and keep up the good work!
