Re: Oddness piping mkisofs into recent cdrecord versions
Well how do you access these files? Is it nfs, ssh, samba..?
If it's over a network, I think the -fs and -waiti flags could be used.. Maybe someone else can clarify on the use..

The issue is that the mkisofs is running on another machine over a
network. I want to burn a CD, and it is really not desirable to jump
through hoops to do so, nor to try and get the tsize= through reliably.
A drawback to the recording modes or ISO filesystem characteristics. As
noted an oddity rather than a bug.
