Synopsis:          cdrtools bugfix release for locking problems
Advisory ID:       RHBA-2003:252-01

1. Topic:

New cdrtools packages fix locking issues that occur while burning CD ROMs
while running newer errata kernels.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Linux 9 - i386

3. Problem description:

When running a newer errata kernel, cdrecord refuses to burn CD-ROMs and
displays the following message:

"Device or resource busy. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver"

This is due to a Red Hat patch which prevents access from autorun and
magicdev while burning CD-ROMs.

The packages contained within this erratum fix this issue.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade.  Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated.  Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated.  Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network.  Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates.  To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:


This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.

5. Bug IDs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla for more info):

99001 - Device or resource busy. Cannot open '/dev/sg0'. Cannot open SCSI driver.

6. RPMs required:

Red Hat Linux 9:



7. Verification:

You can verify each package with the following command:
    rpm --checksig -v <filename>

If you only wish to verify that each package has not been corrupted or
tampered with, examine only the md5sum with the following command:
    md5sum <filename>
