RFE: should enable buffer underrun protection by default
Last modified: 2011-01-25 09:03:28 EST
In FC2 (and all prior releases), cdrecord reports that my drives
support burnfree but it's never enabled unless I tell to enable it.
Wouldn't it be safer for these options to be enabled by default
whenever they're available?
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database. Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
This is an extract from wodim's man pages (cdrecord is a symbolic link) for "burnfree" option:
"This option is deprecated and is mentioned here for documentation purposes only. The BURN-Free feature is enabled by default if the drive supports it. However, use of BURN-Free may cause decreased burning quality. Therefore it can be useful to disable it for certain purposes, eg. when creating a master copy for mass CD production."
For more information see "man wodim".
So this bug is already resolved in upstream as well as in recent Fedora versions.
