Description David Balažic 2002-03-04 12:05:28 UTC
Can please have read/write support for CD-RW discs ?
The thing known as "use the CD as a floppy".

Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-03-04 12:47:19 UTC
Both the 7.2/7.1 errata kernels as the beta kernels have UDF r/w support enabled

Comment 2 David Balažic 2002-03-04 13:00:47 UTC
mount -t udf -w /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

gives an error. What am I doing wrong ?

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2002-03-04 13:03:13 UTC
which error ?

Comment 4 David Balažic 2002-03-05 09:04:29 UTC
the error is :
mount: block device /dev/cdrom is write-protected but explicit '-w' flag given

It is the same if /dev/cdrom points to /dev/hdc,
or if I boot with the hdc=ide-scsi option and
/dev/cdrom points to /dev/scd0

( didn't you get my private mail ? )

Are you still seeing this error with Beta 2?

Comment 6 David Balažic 2002-03-23 15:08:52 UTC
yes, it is the same in beta2

Comment 7 David Balažic 2002-03-27 09:47:09 UTC
And it is the same in beta3.
I dont think this will work without the packet writing driver, which is NOT 
part of the kernel, at least it wasn't when I submitted this RFE.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
