This patch should become obsolete when cdrecord gets Teac/JVC/Pinnacle support.
Current version of cdwrite (v2.0) doesn't support Teac/JVC/Pinnacle line of cdr drives. So I've started implementing support for those drives. At the moment it's still very alpha but seem to work for me with Pinnacle RCD-5040 and SGI Indigo2 running Irix 5.3. Linux support is not finished since I don't have access to Linux box with scsi card at the moment.(so I would appreciate if someone could hack it to work with Linux too :-) Current patch supports only toasting single ISO9660 images, haven't had time to add audio support or anything more complicated.
What you need is cdwrite-2.0.tar.gz and Dan Forrest's patches for SGI cdwrite-sgi.patch and, finally my patch for the Teac (and Pinnacle/JVC) drives cdwrite-teac-sgi-beta2.patch
First untar the tar file, then apply the patches:cd cdwrite-2.0 patch < cdwrite-sgi.patch patch < cdwrite-teach-sgi-beta.patch ... check the makefile and make necessary modifications ... make
As a first test you should try just that 'cdwrite -e' works, and use the -y switch (dummy mode, laser off) to see that the simulation of the writing works okay, before even thinking of trying actual toasting :) And REMEMBER that you will be experimenting on your OWN RISK, I DON'T give any guarantees that this patch will work for you or that it does what its supposed to do...
