Your tag 'wontfix' is nonsense: any option of the above that you choose, you find a a bug in the current kernel that must be fixed in future revisions. > Can dvdrecord use ide devices directly? When starting cdrecord using ATAPI interface it prints Warning: Using ATA Packet interface. Warning: The related Linux kernel interface code seems to be unmaintained. Warning: There is absolutely NO DMA, operations thus are slow. This seems to suggest that idescsi should be used instead. Currently /usr/share/doc/cdrecord/README.ATAPI.setup says "Usually you would not want to use ide-scsi with kernel 2.6" It does not say : "Do not ever use it" Moreover gcombust does not support ATAPI in its interface > Any tool that uses it should have a bug filed against it. > If so please do that. > I'm marking this as wontfix and leaving it open > so it can act as a reference for others. I think that kernel people and the mantainer of cdrecord/dvdrecord should reach an agreement on this issue. (Translation: I am just a poor user, please sort this out between mantainers). If idescsi should not be used, then the documents of cdrecord/dvdrecord should be adjusted. Moreover gcombust needs some refurbishment to be able to use ATAPI. a. -- Andrea Mennucc "Ukn ow,Ifina llyfixe dmysp acebar.ohwh atthef"
