cdrecord doesn't work well any more. After modprobing ide-scsi and sg:
# cdrecord -v speed=1 dev=0,0,0 output.iso Cdrecord 1.10 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2001 Jörg Schilling TOC Type: 1 = CD-ROM cdrecord: Invalid argument. Cannot get mmap for 4198400 Bytes on /dev/zero.I read that if I use 2.4 kernel it will work. I also read that setting fs=0 will work, but I don't know if I should have no fifo (ring buffer). Also, supposedly if I build from source it will be fixed. (It is Debian cdrecord 1.10-2.4 package.)
It appeared to work using:

I couldn't read it. I read that the "fixating time" was way to fast in a posting why CDRW worked but CDR didn't that had similar errors. In a Joerg Schilling README:
NOTE: Some operating systems have a read ahead bug that causes I/O errors for the last file(s) on a CD. This seems at least to be true for all Linux versions and for Solaris 7 FCS. For Solaris 7 there is a patch (107465-02) that you should install. This I/O error problem does not occur with DAO disks and with TAO disks that have been written with cdrecord -pad.I used speed=1, but I think that defaults to 2. I will try speed=0. Also, maybe my problem is due to using Hi-Tech 16X multispeed, Silver, 80 minute, 700MB CDRs. I read that I should try -ignsize option. But the man page says "It is not needed to write disks with more than the nominal capacity."
I replaced the cdrecord package with: 1.10-7. The newer cdrecord worked without fs=0.
I tried a 74 minute, 650MB disk and it worked.
chrooted to my directory for building CD image. Tried to install icewm-gnome from smaug.fh-regensburg.de. This doesn't make sense:
Package `icewm-gnome-126.96.36.199nb1' depends on `tiff>=3.5.4'. - tiff-3.5.7 already installed.Later tried again (after installing other software) and it worked. I may have read error message wrong.
I mentioned to tech-pkg that pkg_add should have an option to save the ftp'd package to a non-tmp location. For example if it failed, then the PKG_PATH could point to it next time you try to install it. *I was told to provide patch.
