K3B crash the system

Hei!

A new experience, k3b crash the system every time I try to burn something. I have tried different ISO images and data files, it burns for awhile and then the system freeze. I haven’t tried to burn in openSuSE 11 yet, but it has usually worked with my earlier distroes, openSuSE 10.x, some crashes, though, but never a total freeze. I have tried both the one from packman and the one included in the distro, same result. I haven’t changed my hardware since it worked just fine with openSuSE 10.3.

Suggestions anyone?

Thanks!

have you run it from a console to see if there are any error messages ? if so, what error messages are displayed ?

Andy

Thanks for your reply,

I tried that just now and the last thing displayed was: ‘… lock cued for device (name of device) …’ and then it froze. Could it be my kernel? My dvd burner is ‘sata’ by the way.

Here is the output when I start from konsole :

I have now tried nerolinux and that burns quite fine. Strange that it seems to be a problem specifically for me, but I reckon it has to be K3b or some programme it relay on which causes this lock-up.

I’m having a similar problem with 11.0 and K3B on a sata burner. It burns, but after ejecting the disk to reload and verify, the program just locks up. I may put an IDE burner to see if that works.

Have the same trouble with K3b. Brasero from yast works fine, check the iso before burning. Also K write locks up, shuts down etc. Loaded Open Office from yast, works great.
KDE 4.1.1, loads of fun getting to work, we should be paid for this!
