Have you tested it ?


Yep...about 30 ok burns so far on a 700mhz machine..with a 16 mb buffer..perhaps larger would be better...I have a 333mhz machine...I will test on that. Processor runs nowhere near max.

As for renice it is awkward because it has to be applied after the process is launced usually in the background...but even if I do something heavy...eg printing, the buffer never drops below 98% so it seems the kernel handles things rather well anyway. In fact I find only the odd app hogs the processor (handbrake is one) and manual priority setting is needed.

I see isoinfo / isovfy. The word verify comes up

yeah I jumped at that too but from what I read its for checking the integrity of an iso file created by mkisofs in the early days when it was still quite buggy.

The reason we use cdrtools is that many apps in Puppy use it

fair enough ...hence my suggestion of swapping unused cdrtool binaries for useful cdrdao..oh I'm so ruthless.

well I've run out of words to quote Smile

Bug: I get a gtkdialog error if there are files in the burn list and I try to open the preferences dialogue from the menu.
What does it say?
Sorry - I posted that when I was in at uni.

Code:
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 51, near token '</default>': syntax error

aborting...
Aborted

Could it be that /root/.pburnrc misses the value for CHKREC (<checkbox> recursively)

mikeb
Maybe we could give the same option as for data-burning. 'on-the-fly' or 'use temporary storage'. If you feel comfortable with your testing, could you then send me your code.

This decision can't be made in the burning-department. Wink

I know..that's why I popped in the workers suggestions box Wink

Well I tested on the pentium 333 and similar results.
I did notice in the log
Code:
 0 seconds. Operation starts.
Waiting for reader process to fill input buffer ... input buffer ready.

It would seem cdrecord sensibly waits until the buffer is filled before recording to avoid underruns...as i said I was using a 16mb buffer which was on the small size to check for performance. In fact compared to using nero in the same mode on the same machine pburn runs very lightly Smile

Well it doesn't have that, but I'm not sure exactly what you mean should be there - do you mean `export CHKREC=true`.
Actually, I was wrong anyway. The preferences dialogue never works now (not just when there is something in the burn list). Maybe I broke it somehow, because I just realised that it does work in Dingo, so you probably shouldn't worry about it.

I'm just wondering - why don't we turn on burnfree?

I'm just wondering - what exactly is burnfree? It's rather weird. My knowledge about burning is sooo tiny.....I shouldn't be allowed to work here Smile Please tell me, disciple. Could it do any harm? Should it be a check to see if burner actually supports burnfree, or will it just be ignored?

What about -shorttrack. Why this default limit of 4 sec track?

Sigmund

I don't really know anything about it myself.
If I understand it correctly, burnfree is the option that all modern burners have had since at least 2001, to somehow prevent buffer underrun errors by stopping and waiting for more data if their buffer is empty.
I think there is no disadvantage to always having it on, but I don't know for sure.
Apparently it doesn't do anything at all if there isn't a buffer under-run, and I think it is just ignored if a burner doesn't support it. But I'm not sure. Maybe someone else knows?

Shorttrack - I have no idea, but I can't imagine wanting a 3 second track Smile

OK, I think I found two real bugs:

1. I burned an audio cd, only to find that it was missing two tracks. I did it again, and noticed that the reason is the tracks had ' characters in them.
e.g. this file was created:
/tmp/pburn_tmp/06_06_Pleasin'_You_Pleases_Me.mp3
But then the log said
Code:

2. Line 200 of the english locale should say
export LOC313="Checking media...

Thanks

1. Already fixed 2 days ago. I'm working through the audio functions, and it's all getting better. Wink
2. You are right......Fixed. 'Ckecking media' must be something else.

when blanking a RW disc, there is no possibility to set the drive speed. I set it in File/Preferences, but then the speed seems to be guessed by cdrecord, it doesn't use the speed i set.

my device is an old 32x/8x/4x. cdrecord guesses 4x all right, but actually i always handle RW discs at 2x, not 4x, because it sometimes ruin my discs Smile

anyway, a fix should be possible, because i still blank my discs with cdrecord using the following command line :
cdrecord blank=fast -eject -v speed=2 dev=ATAPI:0,1,0

aïe
just now noticed something a bit more serious
The Preferences window doesn't open any longer. And, if i go to the menu Burn/Blank CD/DVD-rw... and that i decide to close the window that just appeared (named Pburn: blank disc) by clicking the cross at the top-right corner, the blanking process starts anyway !

(note, i'm still using Puppy 2.16.1, but i installed pburn-1.4.2 , gtkdialog3-0.7.20 , gtklogviewer-0.1 and pfilesearch-1.1 without errors or warnings - all .pets downloaded from the first post)

here is a kind of log, if it can be useful:
i launch pburn:
Code:
# pburn
ls: unrecognized option `--group-directories-first'
Try `ls --help' for more information.
sh: locate: command not found
sh: locate: command not found


then goes in File/Preferences (nothing happens)
Code:
** ERROR **: gtkdialog: Error in line 308, near token '</default>': syntax error

aborting...


then go into Burn/Blank CD/DVD-rw... menu, then close the window
Code:
/usr/local/pburn/func_blank: line 73: [: =: unary operator expected

I have reorganized the blanking function for Pburn 1.5.0. It now uses the same dialog as normal burn. This gives you the normal 'Device' tab to set speed, and the 'Advanced' tab to manipulate the command. Also your last trouble with cancel process should be solved.

Thank you for reporting bugs. I Hope we'll hear from you if you're not pleased when 1.5.0 becomes available.

Sigmund

That file/preferences bug is the same one I reported, but I thought I must have broken something. There must be something different in older puppies that causes it.

It worked up until a couple of versions ago though. I think it broke with 1.4.0, but I'm not sure.

For Pburn 1.5.0 I have made a new function: repair-all-variables-if-broken. I hope this will solve your trouble. Maybe I ship it next weekend. There are some coding left...
