Well, cdrecordwrites DVDs since 1998, what is your problem?
Why did you contribute to a project that stil is completely non-portable
and aborts already in "configure":
checking whether the g77 linker (/usr/ccs/bin/ld) supports shared libraries... yes
checking dynamic linker characteristics... solaris2.9 ld.so
checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /opt/sfw/bin/ginstall -c
./configure: line 21233: syntax error near unexpected token `in'
./configure: line 21233: `for ac_header in'
Reading your README, you seem to claim being interested in the spirit of OSS.
The spirit of OSS is creating software that compiles and works on as many
platforms as possible. This is obviously true for cdrecord but unfortunately
not true for libburn.
You seem to be one of the people who are not confused by the FUD from
the people who like to harm me and my projects. Why do you contribute to a
nonportable project instead of contributing to a project that is in the spirot
