Description Richard Shaw 2015-11-24 10:24:42 EST
Description of problem:
xfburn defaults to /tmp for temporary files (presumably including large images). On Fedora /tmp defaults to tmpfs @ 4GB which could be exceeded by large images.
Comment 1 Jan Kurik 2016-02-24 09:01:22 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 24 development cycle.
Changing version to '24'.

More information and reason for this action is here:
Comment 2 Richard Shaw 2016-03-24 15:03:59 EDT
I have created a patch to change the default /var/tmp and can commit if there's no objection. I have built the package a mock and done basic testing (correctly defaults to /var/tmp) but have not attempted to write an image > 4GB.
Comment 3 Richard Shaw 2016-04-25 16:54:35 EDT
I have check in the patch and built for rawhide. It would be nice to have this propagated to the other releases.
