Do you like a decent discussion or do you like to be one of the uninformed
people who participate in the braindead FUD against cdrtools?
If you have no clue on the background, you should listen to people like me who
know what they are talking about.... You are listening to the wrong people.

Read the text of my last mail and try to understand _why_ _some_ people might
believe that cdrecord is able to work under _some_ _conditions_.
I am not sure about what limited services growisofs provides. I did see enough
logs from cdrecord that verify the fact that Linux does not allow cdrecord to
work correctly under all conditions. This is because Linux does not allow all
the SCSI commands cdrecord needs for it's work unless cdrecord runs with root
