Description of problem:
gtoaster doesn't detect that my LG DVD/CDRW combo is a CD writer. I have to
explicitly check the box in Preferences -> CDROM and Recorder Setup -> Edit ->
This Drive is a CD writer.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.start gtoaster for the first time after an install from scratch
Actual Results: the combo is not taken as a CD writer
Expected Results: it should
Here are the details gtoaster presents in the edit window:
Model: RW/DVD GCC-4480B
Device File: /dev/scd0
Scsi ID: 0,0,0
This is SCSI emulation. Mountpoint looks bogus too.
The problem is actually in cdrecord, that prints:
# cdrecord -scanbus

Err... Why isn't cdrecord an option for Component, and why is cdrtools, that's
not in rawhide?
As notting pointed out, it's the source rpm name that matters.
what can I do about it? Have any patch or hardware handy?
care to report to JÃ¶rg Schilling? :)
FWIW, I tried contacting him, even using my non-Red Hat e-mail
address, to no avail :-( Is there a mailing list or upstream bugzilla
or equivalent where I could report the problem?
no there isn't any bugzilla... did you try his cdrecord-pro with the
free license key?
Just tried it. It even fails to scan /dev/hdk (2.01a27), unless I
explicitly mention -dev=ATAPI:/dev/hdk (as opposed to just
-dev=ATAPI:, that works with the cdrecord we ship). When I do specify
/dev/hdk, it reports it as `Removable CD-ROM', just like what we ship.
if you have time, you may generate a patch, as I do not have the HW...
thx in advance!
any progress with the new rawhide versions?
It's still reported as follows:
1,0,0 100) 'HL-DT-ST' 'RW/DVD GCC-4480B' '1.00' Removable CD-ROM
but this doesn't seem to confuse say xcdroast. In fact, another CDRW/DVD combo
on the box that I now use as my desktop is reported as Removable CD-ROM as well,
but it works just fine too. That's probably good enough. Feel free to close.
