The  "-i --output-info" options have been removed, although the 9.4 manpage
on the website has the option. I did not see any reference to it in the
fixed bugs list, so I'm wondering why support was removed. A detailed log
file would be extremely useful for scripting cdparanoia, and it would be
nice to have more detailed info about errors other than -+!V.

CDROMVOL problem on Xbox dvd drives

Hi!

((I sent an email to this mailing list yesterday and it never appeared, 
and Mozilla didn't save it. :-(
So I'm writing it again, this time shorter. Perhaps the old email shows 
up again some time...))

I'm Michael Steil from Xbox Linux. Linux is running very well on the 
Xbox, but there is a problem with cdparanoia.

One of the drives Microsoft ships with the Xbox, the Thomson one, gives 
an error when you try to "play" an audio CD or send any commands 
related to this. The reason is simple: The drive has no analog or 
digital audio out line anyway.

Unfortunately, cdparanoia III "pings" the drive by reading the audio 
volume:

----------
/* Test for presence of a cdrom by pinging with the 'CDROMVOLREAD' 
ioctl() */
int ioctl_ping_cdrom(int fd){
   struct cdrom_volctrl volctl;
   if (ioctl(fd, CDROMVOLREAD, &volctl))
     return(1); /* failure */

   return(0);
   /* success! */
}
----------

PATCH: CDROMVOL

Hi!

I sent a message about the CDROMVOL problem with the THOMSON-DVD in the 
Xbox yesterday. I implemented the CDROM_GET_CAPABILITY method I 
suggested.

CDROM_GET_CAPABILITY is >0 on all CDROM drives, and <0 on all non-CDROM 
drives and thus a very effective way to ping a drive.

The patch is attached. Please apply it to the standard package. 
Distributors, please add it to your packages.

   Michael

cdparanoia doesn't work as normal user

Hello!

First I want to say cdparanoia is perfect. Nearly. :-) I've only one 
problem: I can use cdparanoia (with tear) as root user but not as normal 
user. It says "cdparanoia III release 9.8 (March 23, 2001)
(C) 2001 Monty <monty <at> xiph.org> and Xiphophorus

Report bugs to paranoia <at> xiph.org
http://www.xiph.org/paranoia/

Unable to open cdrom drive; -v will give more information.
Guano Apes-Move A Little Closer.wav ripped
Could not find "track18.cdda.wav""

Why?! I have ide-scsi running and the devices are /dev/sr0 (dvd-rom) and 
/dev/sr1 (cdrecorder). CD's are only read from /dev/sr1 even as root.

Thank you!!!

Greetings from Germany!!!
Markus

Do you (as a non-root user) have read and write permissions for /dev/sr1?
