What if I dont want to wait each time for bus scanning
?!? Do I always have to have those 5 seconds at the
begining of cdroast to wait for cdrecord to scan the
bus ? Why isn't this an option ? I would even think
that it's better if that would be a button INSIDE
cdroast and not some kind of default behaviour. In
addition to all of this users of xcdroast need to make
"cdrecord -scanbus" work or otherwise they get errors
from xcdroast. The problem is that with ATAPI recorders
people can only get "cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI:" to
work. This means that they can never stop xcdrecord
from showing errors on startup. I know about the -f
flag but I don't want to specify it EVERY TIME I start
cdrecord. In summary I would like:
1. Flag in the config file to disable automatic
scanning at start. Default "true" (or it can even be
"false" if there will be a "scan" button inside xcdroast).
2. Option in the config file to say which command will
be run for scanning (if I enabled it via the first
flag). Default "cdrecord -scanbus".
3. These two options should be in the default config
file installed by xcdroast so people can see those and
Please make a note that after people set up a
cdrecorder they usually DONT NEED any scanning for
about a couple of years (until they switch to another
recorder). This means that scanning every time is a
HUGE waste of resources and users time.
