Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 117534
CDRW and DVDRW failing totally
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:37 EST
Description of problem:
Under the 2.6.3 kernel, it does not seem possible to record either to
CD or DVD
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fire up any CD/DVD writing software
2. Create a list of files to burn (or an ISO image)
An error code 11 from mkisofs occurs. k3b complains that cdrao should
be updated to a newer version which supports packet writing
The CD/DVD should be written to
grub.conf has the drives line set as (after LABEL)
acpi=on hdc=ide-cd hdd=ide-cd hdf=ide-cd selinux=0
ls -l /dev/cdwrite*
/dev/cdwriter -> /dev/sg1
ls -l /dev/cdrom*
/dev/cdrom -> /dev/hdc
/dev/cdrom1 -> /dev/hdd
/dev/cdrom2 -> /dev/hdf
Under the 2.6.2 kernel (compiled from source and with ide-scsi enabled
for both the compilation and on the grub line [/dev/hdf=ide-scsi etc])
CDs and DVDs would burn fine.
Are you point it at /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdwriter? If you're not using
ide-scsi, you shouldn't use /dev/sg*.
you also want to use:
$ cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI:
and then specify dev=ATAPI:0,0,0 or whatever...
It is true that dvdrecord does not support the new ATAPI interface...
but that would be component dvdrtools, right?
Even after doing that, k3b is still giving me the following error
/opt/schily/bin/mkisofs: Resource temporarily unavailable. cannot
(it's the same if I use a self compiled version or the Fedora version)
You're right about the dvd recorded though :-(
gtoaster looks for devices on /dev/sg*, so it is kept in there - it
doesn't matter as I can currently not burn to anything!
I can create an iso image though, so mkisofs can't be that screwy!
is this still the case?
Seems to be working fine now. This can be closed
