    Looks like a problem in the Linuy sg driver.

    I don't like to repeat this, but binary compatibility seems to be a foreign
    word on Linux.

    First make sure that cdrecord is compiled on excatly the same machine
    as you like to run it....

    Check if the include files in /usr/include match your kernel....

    If this does not help write to the sg maintainer.
