    See (which may not
    be the best interpretation of the changes)

    Basically it was added a "linuxcheck" function which you're not allowed to
    modify or delete. The function has a "warning", which results in something
    cdrecord: Warning: Running on Linux-2.6.8
    cdrecord: There are unsettled issues with Linux-2.5 and newer.
    cdrecord: If you have unexpected problems, please try Linux-2.4 or Solaris.

    (Dunno what it prints out when you're running suse but I don't think linux
    vendors are going to distribute software which says that their own software
    has issues.)
    To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-kernel" in
