opticalDiskTest.py patch to ignore cdrecord stderr output

This patch changes the calls to cdrecord to ignore the spurious stderr output produced by cdrecord:

Cdrecord-Clone 2.01 (cpu-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2004 J�rg Schilling
Note: This version is an unofficial (modified) version with DVD support
Note: and therefore may have bugs that are not present in the original.
Note: Please send bug reports or support requests to http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla
Note: The author of cdrecord should not be bothered with problems in this version.

This stderr output causes HTS to through and exception before determining the available write modes of the media.

Comment 13 Greg Nichols 2009-02-18 14:32:45 EST
This patch is proposed and not fully tested, and can't be used for certification.  If you'd like to verify it as a fix, you have to patch the files in /usr/share/hts/lib/hts using the patch command, ala:

> patch command.py command.patch
> patch opticalDiskTest.py opticalDiskTest.patch

This bug has also been observed using hts-5.3-15 during certification testing of the Stratus ftServer 6210 on RHEL 4.7
Comment 23 Jörg Schilling 2009-03-08 18:31:26 EDT
This bug report is not related to cdrecord but to a redhat
variant that replaced the original DVD support code
by non-working code..

If you like to write a DVD, you need to use the original
cdrecord from:

Comment 30 Jörg Schilling 2009-05-22 15:41:44 EDT
Note that the mentioned errata is still trying to solve
the problem based on 5 year old original sources _with_
patches that introduce bugs.

It may be that a few of the bugs introduced with previous
patches have been removed but this is not a final solution.

The code from the errata is not in conflict with the
Copyright law, so this is an advantage from using "cdrkit",
it is however no solution for the original bug report
that is related to DVD writing.

If you like to write DVDs, you need to use original
software from:
