I released these mods (which was actually done over a year ago on a contract, but I couldnt release them until now) just so people experiencing problems could try that route. This could reveal the problems that some has with burncd, and which I would like to get fixed, even if the 'pure' ATAPI driver suite is to be replaced with CAM (I have a use for it at least without CAM).. I was trying to be helpfull here, so please take a deep breath before accusing me of anything else.. > If you object to ATAPI-CAM, just come out and and admit it.

I have said repeatedly on these lists, that I have no problem with CAM as long as the integration is done in a sensible way, and that I am not the one to maintain the CAM translation layer. I was under the impression that Justin was working with you guys on how to do this right from the CAM perspective, at least that was the way I interpreted his mail to this list. I'm not the one slowing things down here, so please point your flak in another direction :) However, the 'pure' ATAPI drivers will continue to live since I have uses for it, if its not to be in the official sources, thats something I'll have to consider how to handle then... -Søren To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
