Hi,

i have to make a correction of my previous
statements about device locking with libburn
on Linux:
Not only O_EXCL but also fcntl() locking is
activated by default.

So this is partly wrong:
  - run a rogue bus scan with cdrskin:
    cdrskin --drive_not_o_excl --devices

It should rather be
  - run a rogue bus scan with cdrskin:
    cdrskin --drive_not_exclusive --devices

Likewise, for resetting the locking mode
to default do not use
  burn_preset_device_open(1, 0, 0);
but
  burn_preset_device_open(1, 1, 0);


Have a nice day :)

Thomas
