Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 77269
suggestion inclusion of dvd+rw-tools
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:32:05 EDT
Description of Problem:
I think it would be great if dvd+rw-tools
(http://fy.chalmers.se/~appro/linux/DVD+RW/) could be included in the
distribution. It's a simple and useful package enabling use of DVD+R and DVD+RW
drives with Linux. There's also a kernel patch which would also be nice, but
this user-level package is, of course, less risky and obtrusive.
Any chance this can get some attention?
Another reason to do this: the latest versions of dvd+rw-tools support DVD-R and
DVD-RW as well. These are the only GPL tools that enable writing of these
formats for the Sony DRU-500A as dvdrtools doesn't work with that drive. I
understand that it must be too late for 8.1, but hopefully someone will look
I've just updated this as a suggestion for RHL9 in hopes that it may get some
attention now that a release is just out....
I'm taking the liberty of closing this bug since dvd+rw-tools is in fact in SEVERN.
