Hi Paul, 

 thank you for your reply!
 I have downloaded shunt and I am currently learning how to use it.
 In the doc on your webpage you wrote:

  "If you need to run shunt and flyisofs on linux, make sure you are
  using linux-2.6.8 or higher. Previous kernels work for burning CDs,
  but they do not work for DVDs because the inode numbering scheme
  overflows at 4GB. Starting with linux-2.6.8, the kernel includes a
  patch I wrote that does not overflow until 128GB. This new scheme
  should be adequate for two or three more generations of media."
 I am using linux vanilla kernel, so the above /should/ not
 apply, but...
 Some days ago I wrote to the mailing list (I am using Gentoo...),
 that I get bad DVD, when they carry more than 4GB data.  The problem
 was, that the pkcdvd (pktsetup) was installed at boot time by

 I removed the call to the init script and anything not being related
 to pktcdvd/pktsetup works fine...leaving me behind wondering, why 
 writing vi pktcdvd/pksetup should be limited to 4GB.

 May be your patch should be applied to the pktsetup/pkcdvd "driver"
 also ???

 Another problem: I was not able to build libcustcalc. The current
 release of calc seems to be broken. Neithe the Gentoo install
 mechanism nor installing by hand works.

 Keep hacking! ;)
