Writing Snapshots - XFBurn Froze ...

#1 Post by KernSpy » Tue Oct 09, 2018 5:29 pm

I've written a couple snapshots to DVD and XFBurn stopped responding. It burned the snapshots ok, but I had no way of knowing, because there wasn't any "visible" messages from XFBurn.

"The window might be busy or not responding, do you want to terminate the application" yes/no?


Not a big deal as long as it burns the images ok. Just thought I would mention it.

Some thoughts:
If you start xfburn from the terminal command line

Code: Select all

xfburn
would you see any error message or warning?
Could you also disable media automount of cd/dvd if enabled?
Could you disable "Eject disk" and see if that's the show stopper?
:puppy:
EDIT: Which xfburn version do you use?

Are you logged in as user "root" or running xfburn as user "root"?
If so please after reinstall from mx stable-repo do run/login as normal user.
Note: Just in case: MX Linux is not meant to run as root user.
