scsi-emulation

A couple of newb questions:
1) what is scsi -emulation and why does XCDRoast need it?
2)do i need to setup scsi-emulation for all cd burning apps or are there any apps that will work without it?
3) how do i setup scsi emulation?

Thanks for the help in advance,
Mike

Re: scsi-emulation

If you're using 2.6.x kernel you don't have to use scsi emulation.

Re: scsi-emulation

I am, but when i start xcdroast it still tells me that my atapi cdrw drive will slow down the process significantly and i should use scsi-emulation.  Did i do something wrong?

Re: scsi-emulation

No you did nothing wrong. As long as that is only a warning that XCDRoast gives you you should have no troubles burning. I have burned in ATAPI mode with no apparent slow downs. Mind you i do not use any graphical burning app.

sarah31,

Do you just use cdrecord in a terminal? I saved the output from a burn on xcdroast and
tried it from the command line, but it only burned the first audio track...sigh

cdrecord dev= "ATAPI:0,1,0" gracetime=2 fs=4096k driveropts=burnfree,noforcespeed -v -useinfo speed=52 -dao -eject -pad -audio /home/dk/music/something.wav

Re: scsi-emulation

I ended up going the CLI way with an app called burncenter instead of Xcdroast.  Very simple interface, easy to setup and even works with mpg123 to convert mp3 files to wav automatically.  I had no problems or warnings with my ATAPI burner and would recommend this app to anyone experiencing a similar problem

well after you have all the .wavs setup in the directory you will be burning from that command should work except instead of "something" use the "*" wildcard. for example:

cdrecord dev= "ATAPI:0,1,0" gracetime=2 fs=4096k driveropts=burnfree,noforcespeed -v -useinfo speed=52 -dao -eject -pad -audio /home/dk/music/*.wav

the * means, of course that anything that ends in .wav will be burned.

you should package it burncenter up and submit it to whereever user contributed packages are going these days.

Re: scsi-emulation

Yea i would package it but i dunno how to package something that doesnt use configure make make install.  Burncenter used an install script.  Can i use makepkg for something like that?  If i can then id be happy to do it :-D

Re: scsi-emulation

You can use makepkg on basically anything; for example. the J2RE is a binary installer and it still works.  You just have to get it to install into the $startdir/pkg dir in some proper way.

On the other hand, if the installer AND uninstaller work flawlessly (fat chance) there is no need for a package, only its easier to use a common interface like pacman. :-D

Its better to compile from source so makepkg can use the proper optimizations.

Whatever the app (I have no time to do research), if its not GPL'd, there may be issues with redistributing it.
