This is very nice! I've always wanted to do something like this. I've tried it with the neko_dvdrtools package and a SCSI Yamaha CRW2100SZ. Although it said it burned a CD I haven't verified it yet.. A few questions for you.

1) Please, please please! Tell me how did you get your tabs to look so good!?! I'm using the Motif 2.1 Notebook widget but my tabs look this this

2) Do you plan to open source the app for collaboration?

3) IRIX has a method of setting user capabilities (man capabilities). If you put the user's name in /etc/capability such as

squeen:CAP_DEVICE_MGT+eip:CAP_DEVICE_MGT+eip


a non-root user would be able to burn a CD. However, you also need to log in with privelages enables (e.g. su squeen -C "CAP_DEVICE_MGT+eip"). What I have done in the past is have the program check if capabilities are enabled and if not use a system() command to run itself in a capabilities enabled shell.

Again, awesome work. Thanks!

This is the first public release of my CD Writer applet. It wraps mkisofs and cdrecord in a SGI Motif panel.

Read the README, learn the various DISCLAIMERS off by heart and get it here: http://www.sillypages.org/sgi/

Enjoy!

PS. Please make the effort to REPORT BUGS! No bug reports, no fixes.

Thanks again for all your nice compliments, they're much appreciated!

I'm working on the various bugs and issues reported in this thread and I hope to have a 0.3 bugfix release out soon. As to releasing the sources as Free Software... I haven't made up my mind yet.

The SGI style tabs in CDWriter are a function of using the ViewKit VkTabbedDeck component. 'man VkTabbedDeck' for all the information ;)

Thanks! Unfortunately I'm a C/Motif purist.

Thanks again for cdwriter. I am having some problems with it however. I have verified that nekoware dvdrecord works with my SCSI CD-R drive, but CDWriter thinks (I believe) that its a CD-ROM.

So it grays out the bottom half of the first page (speed, etc.).
It will make me an iso image, but no burn.
Any thoughts?

Hehe funny - I was thinking about my various bits of IRIX code just the other day.

Unfortunately, I haven't shipped my O2 to my current location yet :( Am considering picking up an Ebay Fuel one of these days, but I'm not yet decided on the matter. Sort of hoping that the Tezro's will start showing up in the next 6 to 10 months. Going from an O2 to a Tezro should be a pretty 'meaningful' upgrade ;)

On the up-side there was some bugfixing/packaging/featuring happening to the CD-applet and my ViewKit extensions before I left Amsterdam in February.

Jimmer my friend, get a Fuel 8). Bang for the buck, they're pretty nice. Especially since some have been selling for around 300 euro lately. Even when (more) Tezro's start showing up on ebay, you just know the prices will be insanely high.
