Cdrtools added to repository

Cdrtools has been added to the Kwheezy repository.

Cdrtools is a collection of command line tools for CD, DVD and Blueray support. The most notable being cdrecord, a burning tool. It also includes tools for ripping music, making ISO images and working with them. K3B, the graphical utility uses cdrecord (AKA wodim) in the background.

The package is available from Apper or apt-get and is named "cdrtools".

The package contains the folowing tools:

  • cdrecord  -  A CD/DVD/BD recording program
  • readcd  -  A program to read CD/DVD/BD media with CD-clone features
  • cdda2wav  -  The most evolved CD-audio extraction program with paranoia support
  • mkisofs  -  A program to create hybrid ISO9660/JOLIET/HFS filesystes with optional Rock Ridge attributes
  • isodebug  -  A program to print mkisofs debug information from media
  • isodump  -  A program to dump ISO-9660 media
  • isoinfo  -  A program to analyse/verify ISO/9660/Joliet/Rock-Ridge Filesystems
  • isovfy  -  A program to verify the ISO-9660 structures
  • rscsi  -  A Remote SCSI enabling daemon

cdrtools replaces the following packages:

  • dvd+rw-tools
  • genisoimage
  • wodim

    OH NOES.

    Madness... this is cdrecord.

    You are being dragged into a biiiiig fight and you are using the wrong operating system. Linux is inferior. Devices names are stupid. You must switch to Solaris immidiatly. Resistance is futile you will be solarized.
