Xcdroast? I'd use cdrecord/growisofs for the best control and K3b for the best screenshots
Yes,.... xcdroast has been quite interesting, in a way. It seems to insist on scsi, so, in that case it can stay shelved. Poor old legacy X apps (grin) what to do with them (scratch head).
Iv'e been spending all week experimenting with cdrecord and finaly got it to respond, just with the -scanbus -checkdrive and -prcap switches. So i got a small pkt of -rw cd discs to-day, to try some real tests on the week end, very exciting (grin).
Funny thing though ... i was recompiling the kernel in different ways all week. Experimenting with modulal and builtin support for the cdrom device and filesystem, scsi and atapi support etc. Got it to work with builtin support only, but i have been changing the options around so much i could be wrong there. scsi emulation buggered it right up though. cdrecord saw no drive (grin). Now it goes though.
Error: Cannot gain SYS_RAWIO capability.Is cdrecord installed SUID root?
Whether i'm using a root shell or account. On one kernel it was completely ok, i got rid of that message, ... but then i went and deleted it !. Must have gone delete happy at the time hehehe. Not to worry though, it will be worked out, and it is fun. Just gotta stumble on the config i used for the good test.
And there are a few other tools to try out too, such as dvd925, i think it's called. And i haven't heard of "growisofs", so i will have to look into that too
There are certainly some interesting comments in cdrecords source, and the error/warning output is a bit miss-leading. But other wise it seems ok, if not somewhat stuck in a 2.4.x time warp. I applied debs unmaintaind dvd patch which seems ok but the program declears it self as "UnOfficial" as a result (grin). And, as it seems a key is needed for the dvd version of cdrecord ... i think i stay with the patched version in that case.
The source appears to use a 64k buffer too, in terms of the program ... seems a bit small for modern conditions ... the pioneer i have states that it has 2000k available.
I wonder if it is worth increasing the value from 64k in the source to some other higher value, like 1000k ???. Something else to test i guess. Having lots of fun, regardless though and am looking forward to putting it to some good use
