SubjectRe: write to dvd ram
From
OK, I've asked this question four weeks in a row and received no response whatsoever.  Linux is supposed to be the OS where you can turn to the newsgroups/IRC and get able help.

This is to those who couldn't lift a finger to help with this compile/driver problem:
Thanks for nothing, you arrogant snots. You don't know how much damage you do.

No one has a minute to help me with this (compile?) problem? Linus ?

Only udf I could find that was compatible with kernel 2.4.2 was the udf-0.9.3 tarball. It does have a 2.4 directory. I am restricted in which kernel I can use, as I must have a patch for fibrechannel. My compile craps out with the listing below; I can't make any sense out of it.

I have used Linux for several years as my firewall, and in December 2k I decided to make it my workstation. Since that time I have worked on configuring it at least a few hours each workday afternoon. (RedHat Fisher, then Wolverine) Now I am not a dummy, but I'm not a coder either, and I have just not been able to get this system running, and am now up against two problems I cannot solve: this DVDRAM | UDF issue corrupting my disks (Why is udf-0.9.1 in Wolverine, wrecking my DVDRAM data? And how can I install udf as a module when it's already in kernel?), and Wine setup. No one has
answered my questions on the kernel IRCs nor Wine mailinglist -- they're fairly cross with newbies who have actually read/followed the docs. Often when I ask a question I get taken down like an elk by a lion. This isn't supposed to be natural selection people. Supposed to =bring= ppl to Linux; don't they know the damage they do to Linux by blowing off their steam? Most newbies won't slap them back down; they'll just go away quietly & then put down Linux to others.
I haven't even yet gotten to learning/configuring Sane, LDAP, Postfix, IPTables, VPN, nor intrusion detection, much less database & production functions.

I just don't know how I'm going to make this work =practically= as much as I want it; RedHat just seems to require unlimited volumes of time. After months I am precisely nowhere, and stuck with Windows, and discouraged; looks like I have at least another year of =configuring= at this rate.

Linux UDF Configuration Script

The default responses for each question are correct for most users.

Linux source directory [/usr/src/linux]: /usr/src/linux-2.4.2-temp
Alternate target install directory []: /lib/modules/2.4.2-0.1.49
C compiler name [gcc]:
Linker name [ld -m elf_i386]:
UDF Write Support (y/n) [y]:
Compiler flags for debugging [-g]:

The UDF driver needs to be compiled to match the kernel it will be used with, or it may fail to load. If you are not sure what to do, please consult the UDF manual.

How would you like to set kernel-specific options?
1 - Read from the currently running kernel
2 - Read from the Linux source tree
Enter option (1-2) [1]: 2

Kernel configuration options:
Symmetric multiprocessing support is disabled.
Max physical memory in MB is
Advanced Power Management (APM) support is enabled.
Networking support is enabled.
Module version checking is enabled.

The kernel source tree is version 2.4.2-0.1.49.
The current kernel build date is Wed Apr 18 20:53:37 MDT 2001.

Your module utilities are version 2.4.2.
