I think that duplicating DVDs works like a charm on FreeBSD but I think
there is a better software in ports for that of K3b which is
kind a all in one generic GUI application. This is also a useful link
http://www.dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html if you are trying to
understand DVD business. There are definitely people on this mailing
list or on OpenBSD mailing list (I do not remember any more as I am on
both mailing lists) who have fantastic knowledge of DVD writable medias,

The help from this group has been outstanding, but getting things
CD and DVD actually working has been a study in persseverancce.
That said, first,if there is a website for total dweebs, please
post it; or send it privately. I just bought some "Memorex
DVD+RW" ; I want to record a 117 minute commercial DVD.
On the back on the DVDs is says these are only good for 60 minutes
in great qualty; it is good up to 120 minutes, and so on.
Nutshell: how good will k3b and my Pioneer burner do on dubbing
this professioally recorded disc? Also, Does thw "RW" mean tthat
I can re-tape over this with another edu DVD?
PS: I much prefer analogue cassettes; I've been taping stuff
since I taped "American Bandstand" off the TV :-)
but you will need little bit of Serbian language to read it.
Actually, my best friend for > 30 years comes from [ what was ]
Yugoslavia; so he could surely help me with the translation.
I think I have the k3b stuff actually workinng. As of late FFriday
night, k3b ran thru all of its tests. That wasn't my question.
I want to know
more about what DVD blanks are good,better,best, and whether it is
worth "wasting" a blank DVD in trying to copy a DVD that I borrowed
from the library.
I've googled arouund, tryiiing to get some kind of specs that an
EE can understand ... even if he kknows nothing about figital
proprietary Video Formats and various issues that come with that including
the issues of regional coding and by that I do not mean just USA vs
Europe or Asia. Even inside of U. S. where I have being g living for the
past 12 years there are many different regional formats. I am clueless
As a mathematician I am probably much less capable of understanding DVD
technical issues than you.
To be perfectly honest as a professional mathematician I am very
concern with the status of TeX port and the fact that two years after
teTeX was abolished by TeX community in favor of TeXLive there are no
even indication that the TeXLive will be ported to FreeBSD. Even in the
most crude form (4 packages) as it is done in OpenBSD would be better
than noting. Of course the Debian way (30 or so packages) would be my
preferable way as TeXLive is developing really rapidly in some areas.
My knowledge of porting is unfortunately inadequate to be able to help
with such a major project.
thanks for your email; it was one of the postings that helped me
get atapicam stuff *working*
Actually probably you could follow article even if you do not speak
Serbian as the language is generic and there are only three important
steps you need to do.
Step 1 Editing your /boot/loader.conf file with
since FreeBSD is using atapicam device to write DVD
Step 2 Edit your /etc/devfs.conf with various permission. Most of those
are needed for a work station anyway
perm /dev/acd0 0666
perm /dev/cd0 0666
# Commonly used by many ports
link cd0 cdrom
link cd0 dvd
link cd0 rdvd
link acd0 cdrom
link acd0 dvd
link acd0 rdvd
# Misc other devices
perm cdrom 0666
perm dvd 0666
perm rdvd 0666
perm xpt0 0666
perm pass0 0666
Step 3 Edit your /etc/fstab file if you want to use K3b as a normal user
since the disk has to be mounted on the mount point which belong to you
[pedja@ /usr/home/Pedja]$ more /etc/fstab
#These are my options
/dev/cd0 /usr/home/Pedja/mnt/cdrom cd9660 rw, noauto 0 0
/dev/acd0 /usr/home/Pedja/mnt/cdrom cd9660 rw, noauto 0 0
You do not need HAL for things to work but is not going to heart.
make showinfo /usr/ports/sysutils/k3b
