Column «Installation of cdrecord and mkisofs»

I used cdrecord-1.8.1.tar.gz downloaded from the following:


The archive of cdrecord includes mkisofs, too. Extract it on a suitable directory, and modify a file as follows:

(Modifying DEFAULTS/Defaults.linux)
INS_BASE= /opt/schily
INS_BASE= /usr/local

And make it as follows:

$ ./Gmake.linux
$ su
# ./Gmake.linux install

Now, cdrecord, mkisofs, and some other utilities are installed on /usr/local/bin.

Make it sure that a CD-R drive is recognized in "cdrecord -scanbus" command.

# cdrecord -scanbus

In the example above, TEAC CD-R56S is recognized. (LHD-U15H/E is a SCSI hard drive) Remember the left "0,4,0" in order to add an option "dev=0,4,0" to cdrecord command later.
