CDRECORD writes a CD correctly and fixates it but then hangs and the
process cannot be killed. System has to be re-booted to regain access to
Steps to Reproduce:
1. cdrecord fisher-i386-powertools.iso
Actual Results: cdrecord gets to :
and then stops, the CD writer shows some activity then the light goes out
and CDRECORD never exits
Expected Results: CDRECORD should exit and give a new shell command prompt
System specification: Yamaha CRW8824S Rev: 1.00, Adaptec AHA-7850 (rev 3),
AMD Athlon 1.2GHz
I cant reproduce this.
Further investigation shows the problem to be a conflict between cdrecord &
magicdev. With magicdev disabled cdrecord works perfectly. I suspect magicdev
is trying to mount the disk before cdrecord has quite finished with it.
I have got the same result (hangs the system, need to reboot it),
when I am trying to blank a rewritable-CD
reproductible all the time:
cdrecord blank=all -v dev=0,5,0
but I am able to write simple CD ?
there was no such behavior before the update from 7.0 to 7.1 !
