That reminds me, I was going to re-add cdrtools to the repositories, but I forgot, because I never write CDs or DVDs anyway (and when I do, it works with what I have installed right now).
If you rarely use it and if you only use very basic functionality, you may not run into problems that are visible to you ... if you are lucky.
genisoimage creates nearly all ISO images with defects that may hit you in the future.
genisoimage misses many important features needed for DVDs and BluRays
wodim does not write BluRay at all and writing DVDs only works on a few cases.
BTW: Linux-2.2 may also still work - do you really like to use it today? Wodim is code from 2004, it misses half of the development efforts seen in the original software.
I know that growisofs uses mkisofs, but didn't know that the present version is 4+ years old.
Anyway, i just removed dvd+rw-tools, and k3b whines about not finding growisofs in the PATH. What should i do?
Joerg, out of curiosity, do you use the commandline version of your baby, or some frontend?
@ Thomas, it would be great to have cdrtools in the repositories.
