Re: Script problem with growisofs

There's a script-problem with growisofs which makes it nearly impossible
to use for automated backup purposes:
I suggest you read and understand the difference between the 'at'
command and just sticking things in crontab. Read the section of
starting directory and exvironment!
if you invoke growisofs at commandline or from an script directly with
"-Z" option, all ist fine, it works great.
But if you invoke it from "cron" directly or in a script, the "-Z"
option causes growisofs to exit without anything beeing written to DVD
+RW nor erasing it.
If you invoke growisofs in the same way with "-M", all runs fine, but
the media is not erased before writing.
I guess it's a tty problem ...
Is there a solution for that?

It seemed like a good idea at the time
