Since you mention VCD, what is the correct burning magic for cdrskin?
I've created images with vcdimager, but they are cuefile+bin, which is
not supported. Is there a software which produces a single burnable image?
There is a potential problem with your idea about doing something in open().
Open() is a C library call, not a kernel API call.
Oh, not for general open(). But for the code of
the hd , sg , and sr drivers which they perform
on open(). The same code that is able to spoil
our burns. To my experience an
already sends SCSI commands which can do harm.
Some instance in Linux must trigger those specific
commands on the generic gesture open(). For now i
am reluctant to dive into this architecture.
Exactly one year ago i got dragged into the lower
levels of burning and i still understand only half
of what a CD actually is. (E.g. video CD and mixed
mode and the colored books and and and)
I don't want to open a new can of worms before i
am done with the old one. :))
