Description Paul F. Johnson 2004-03-04 19:02:20 EST
Description of problem:
Under the 2.6.3 kernel, it does not seem possible to record either to

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
cdrecord 2.01-0.a25.4

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Fire up any CD/DVD writing software
2. Create a list of files to burn (or an ISO image)
Actual results:
An error code 11 from mkisofs occurs. k3b complains that cdrao should
be updated to a newer version which supports packet writing 

Expected results:
The CD/DVD should be written to

Additional info:
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
/dev/cdwriter1-> /dev/sg2

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.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-04 21:45:53 EST
Are you point it at /dev/cdrom or /dev/cdwriter? If you're not using
ide-scsi, you shouldn't use /dev/sg*.
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-03-05 05:50:42 EST
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?
Comment 3 Paul F. Johnson 2004-03-05 17:56:36 EST
Even after doing that, k3b is still giving me the following error

/opt/schily/bin/mkisofs: Resource temporarily unavailable. cannot
fwrite 2048*1

(it's the same if I use a self compiled version or the Fedora version)

You're right about the dvd recorded though :-(
Comment 4 Paul F. Johnson 2004-03-05 17:57:58 EST
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!
Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2004-07-30 09:36:16 EDT
is this still the case? 
Comment 6 Paul F. Johnson 2004-07-30 11:38:32 EDT
Seems to be working fine now. This can be closed
