cdrecord problems on sarge - status and alternatives ?
I am unable to burn cds using either a SCSI cdrw or an ATAPI DVD/CD RW.
I am using Sarge and have tried kernels 2.6.15 and 2.6.18. cdrecord
prematurely terminates the write with the error message "OPC failed".
(I'll post the detailed log if needed). This seems to be related to
bug 381137 ( http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=381137 ).
Oddly enough burning DVDs with growisofs works well.
I would be greatfull if someone has a fix or workaround for this
problem or a pointer to other "free" software that may be used to
burn CDs. I am aware that Etch replaces cdrtools with cdrkit. But am not
sure if cdrkit fixes this problem and if there is a backport to sarge
available for the same.
