Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 503699
cdda2ogg has runtime dependency on vorbis-tools
Last modified: 2014-02-02 17:13:27 EST
Description of problem:
newman@dhcp-lab-124 ~ $ cdda2ogg
Encoder not found. Install one first! (eg. vorbis-tools)
<< vorbis-tools installed >>
newman@dhcp-lab-124 ~ $ cdda2ogg
Looking for available tracks...
ERROR: No valid audio tracks detected
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
(inherited from cdrkit-1.1.9-4.fc11)
Script /usr/bin/cdda2ogg fails to run, when vorbis-tools are missing.
Require: vorbis-tools in spec file
Yep. Thanks for the report.
The cdrtools fork "cdrkit" is unable to properly
run on a system with running "hald". This is a result
of design bugs introduced by cdrkit.
Did you try to use the real cdda2wav instead of the
I recommend you to use the original software from
Please also note:
The file cdda2ogg is currently unsupported and
the file cdda2ogg that you see is not the original,
so the bug may also be in the script......
You may like to try the file cdda2ogg as distributed with
the original software.....

That might be possible but I am afraid it has nothing to do with this bug report. Can you provide more details in separate report?

Nope - it's not in Fedora and the problem here is clear, package cdrkit/icedax is missing vorbis-tools in it's Require field.

Thank you for advice but recent versions of cdrecord are not usable for me from legal POV.

Well, I believe it is supported from cdrkit upstream.

That's not very likely unless distributors decide to push cdrecord back to repositories. Thanks for you comment, though, Jörg.
You seem to be a victim of missinformation from some
The original software has absolutely no problems with legality.
It is the fork distributed by Redhat that is in conflict with
the Copyright law and for this reason cannot be dstributed
legally. Note that RedHat needs to be aware for being sued
because Redhat distributes the illegal fork.
BTW: Debian did already promise to go back to the legal original
Hint: In order to have the permission to sue people, you need to
own the Copyrights on the related software. The people who
claim that there is a problem with the original software do not
own the Copyright on the software and therfore cannot sue anybody.
It is obvious that there is a big FUD campaign against the legal OSS
Jörg, please, file separate bug report and block against bug "FE-LEGAL", in case you feel your copyright is in threat from Fedora side. Stop polluting this completely unrelated bug report.
Since no one here is lawyer, we act as we are advised from Fedora legal folks, nothing more, nor less.
In case you did not realize this, you polluted this bug tracking
system with incorrect claims in your previous report, so you
initiated my reply.
I recommend the Fedora folks to ask real lawyers in order to
get correct information. I asked lawyers and so did e.g. Sun
and Sun does distribute the original software because the Sun
legal department did make an in depth legal review on the license
Simon Phipps (the Sun OpenSource evangelist) did convince Debian
and Debian promised to start distributing the legal original software
soon. When will Redhat do the same?
Keep in mind that I am the Copyright holder and I am not amused
to see redhat distributing a fork that is in conflict wth the
BTW: I tried to get into contact with Redhat legal to no avail and
this is why I see no other way to inform people about the situation.
Use fedora-legal-list http://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/fedora-legal-list for such concerns not random bugzilla entry, please. I am afraid that's the only think I can do for you in here from my engineer POV.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Spec file was changed. I added Require for vorbis-tools for icedax.
