Comment 1 Dariusz Garbowski 2003-11-16 15:01:40 EST
I am still seeing it with dvdrecord-0.1.5-1.i386.rpm and the following
Vendor_info    : 'PIONEER '
Identifikation : 'DVD-RW  DVR-105 '

BTW: what version of dvdrecord REALLY is packaged in
dvdrecord-0.1.5-1.i386.rpm? I'd expect 0.1.5 but that's what I'm seeing:

# dvdrecord -version
dvdrtools v0.1.4
Comment 2 Dariusz Garbowski 2003-11-16 15:14:14 EST
ok - I built dvdrecord from dvdrtools 0.1.5 from
http://www.nongnu.org/dvdrtools/ and it reports dvdrtools v0.1.4 as well.
