1.43.  dvd+rw-tools

1.43.1.  RHBA-2009:1072: bug fix update


This update has already been released (prior to the GA of this release) as FASTRACK errata RHBA-2009:1072
An updated dvd+rw-tools package that addresses a bug and corrects a typo is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The dvd+rw-tools package is a collection of tools to master DVD+RW/+R media.
  • on some systems with manually-operated DVD drive trays (ie drives that cannot be closed mechanically, such as most slim-line drive trays), burning data to DVD media would produce an erroneous "Error writing to disk" alert. The data was, in fact, successfully burnt to the DVD and the newly burnt DVD was then ejected. The inability of the drive tray to close mechanically, however, caused dvd+rw-tools to return an "unable to reload tray" message which, in turn, caused the 'writing to disk' error to present. With this update, dvd+rw-tools treats the underlying "START_STOP_UNIT" message properly and, consequently, the misleading alert does not present. (BZ#390961)
  • a typo in the dvd+rw-tools.spec file was corrected. The "%{dist}" tag on the "Release" line was corrected to "%{?dist}". The correction ensures an rpm can be built from the dvd+rw-tools source even if a distribution is not defined in either the Makefile or your local ~/.rpmmacros file. (BZ#440621)
All dvd+rw-tools users should upgrade to this updated package, which resolves these issues.
