Re: Script problem with growisofs

There's a script-problem with growisofs which makes it nearly impossible to use for automated backup purposes:

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?
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!
