Description of Problem:
Installed new HP 100i DVD+RW burner, and it seems to work unless I try to burn
an image larger than "100 minutes" to a DVD+RW media. dvdrecord bombs out with
[root@ckk skipjack]# dvdrecord -vv -eject -dao driver=mmc_cd_dvd \

Found a small kernel patch for the sr module that enables you to simply cat or
dd an image to the DVD+RW drive. It applies cleanly w/fuzz to the 2.4.18-X
kernels and seems to work just fine. Also includes userspace tools to format
DVD+RW disks (does not require kernel patch) and Location is:
This is still the case with (null).
Kernel patch not required. Userland tools work without kernel modification now,
I'd just like to verify what you're asking for here as I've just
been assigned this package. You're wanting the DVD+RW tools at the
above URL to be added to the distribution?
Yes, if they pass technical muster. DVD+RW drives are not compatible with
dvdrecord, cdrecord or cdrdao for writing DVD+R or DVD+RW disks (they work fine
with them for burning standard CD's). I have had no trouble with writing DVD+RW
disks using these userland tools. The kernel patch is not needed, but with it it
is possible to simply 'dd' a DVD iso to the drive and it will write. That
funcionality is accomplished using growisofs in userland, and seems a better
move. I had made a simple RPM of these for my own use (on my ftp://people page)
but I have not checked for updates since then.
The author of the code I packaged wrote me to say he has updated the code, and
created a (hopefully) proper Makefile and .spec file and it is available on his
website noted above. He would be really happy if Red Hat picked up his project
and made it a part of the distribution.
assigning to master of os-develdept :)
FYI- since my lst update, support was added to dvd+rw-tools for DVD-RW and DVD-R
in addition to DVD+RW and DVD+R. A src.rpm and i386.rpm of his latest code (as
of Feb.28,2003) is available on my people page.
