Title: [RESOLVED] k3b needs a newer growisofs
Post by: blurymind on June 15, 2007, 10:39:56 am
Code: [Select]
I get this note upon starting the latest k3b we have at the repos:

[quote]Used growisofs version 6.1 is outdated
It is highly recommended to use growisofs 7.0 or higher. K3b won't be able to write a DVD+RW in multiple sessions using a growisofs version older than 7.0.
Solution: Install a more recent version of growisofs.

i have no idea how to package and im not sure wether it came with the source code.

blurymind,

Which version of VL are you using (full output of cat /etc/vector-version, please)? If you are using SOHO 5.8 final, the correct version of mkisofs is included as part of the dvd+rw-tools package.

The next question has to do with whether you're going to write multisession DVD+RW's. If not, then you should be fine. ;-)

HTH,
John

VL 5.8 Standard has the older dvd+rw tools on it (version 6.1). I've moved a package of dvd+rw tools 7.0, which is on SOHO 5.8, into the veclinux-5.8 testing repository. It can be downloaded here:

http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-5.8/testing/base-apps/dvd+rw-tools-7.0-i586-2vl58.tlz

Or you can use gslapt to grab it from the veclinux-5.8 testing repository.

Please let me know whether this solves the problem you're running into.

Thanks,
John
