Description Jay Berkenbilt 2002-11-04 16:25:59 UTC
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?

Comment 2 Jay Berkenbilt 2003-02-23 19:15:02 UTC
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
into this.

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.
