Comment 3 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-26 02:39:42 EDT
original fedora kernel version 2.6.7-?
Comment 4 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-26 02:40:31 EDT

Comment 5 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-26 08:41:58 EDT
try it with the original fedora core kernel as root.
Comment 6 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-26 12:10:02 EDT

Comment 7 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-27 04:28:17 EDT
BUG or not?
Comment 8 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-27 06:50:55 EDT
who decides this?
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-27 07:58:28 EDT
if it works, where is the bug?
if you mean, that with the new kernel, it does not work anymore, 
then this is a duplicate of bug #130576
Comment 10 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-28 10:32:38 EDT
it worked with previous versions of cdrecord so it must be a bug in
cdrecord too.
Comment 11 Harald Hoyer 2004-10-28 11:21:19 EDT
maybe it lasts long? I don't see any bad things happen in your strace...
Comment 12 Matthias Bachert 2004-10-28 11:31:08 EDT
had it running one whole night and it just hung.
Comment 13 Harald Hoyer 2004-11-01 04:02:11 EST
ok, that is a bug, then
Comment 14 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 12:35:14 EDT
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.
Comment 15 Harald Hoyer 2005-09-16 10:16:02 EDT
sorry, I can't fix this, and I hope it works with recent kernels and cdrecord.
Comment 16 Andre Robatino 2006-08-21 06:34:38 EDT
  The problem still exists with FC5, I've opened bug #203248.  Burning works
partially using cdrdao instead of cdrecord - it's possible to burn a blanked
disc, but not to blank a disc.
