#65 DVD Iso burning fails with cdrecord


Using GnomeBaker 0.4 and cdrecord-2.01.1-9 from Fedora
Core 4, I am unable to burn a DVD iso without doing
this after:

cdrecord -fix dev=/dev/hdc

It seems cdrecord is not fixating the dvd disc.

Although that particular problem has nothing to do with
GnomeBaker, wouldn't it be better/more compatible if
GnomeBaker used growisofs to burn DVD iso images?

    It does use growisofs, it does NOT use cdrecord. Is
    growisofs not included in Fedora Core 4?

    I uninstalled cdrecord and now it just hangs.

    Here's what I'm doing:
    1- Start Gnomebaker
    2- Click on "Burn CD Image" (There's no "Burn DVD image"
    3- Select a DVD iso image, click on "Start"
    4- Get the following on the console:

    [mdeslaur@mdlinux ~]$ gnomebaker
    cdrecord dev=/dev/hdc gracetime=2 speed=2 -v
    /home/mdeslaur/test.iso (null)
    Xlib: unexpected async reply (sequence 0xbcc7)!

    Looking at the source, I see the function burn_iso() in
    burn.c that uses cdrecord, but I don't see any place that
    would use growisofs to burn a dvd image. Am I missing something?

    In burn.c there should be a function called burn_dvd_iso.
    Also there should be an option called "Burn DVD Image" in
    the Action menu. It seems to me that you are still using
    GnomeBaker 0.3.

    Please download the latest sourcecode or rpm for your distro.

    Sorry for wasting your time, for some reason, I was using
    the 0.3 tarball. :(
