Description j. alan eldridge 2000-10-25 22:45:55 EDT
cdda2wav does not open an ATAPI cdrom with O_NONBLK. the 2.2 kernel code
requires this flag or else a medium type error results, along with a syslog
error stating that the device must be opened non-blocking.

tests to test against this identifier.

the 1.10a4 release is available from:


i will submit a patch against the source used in RH7 within a day or two.
