HowTo / Notes


Affected Distros: gentoo

This Warning is now outdated, as there are instructions around this on the Gentoo Forums. See for details.

EAC may require the native wnaspi32.dll to run, which requires IDE SCSI emulation (ide-scsi) support in the kernel. Some kernels have broken ide-scsi CD[/DVD] burning support in the 2.6.x kernel and you may wind up with coasters if you use ide-scsi with your CD[/DVD] burner.

If you have more than one optical drive in your PC you can set ide-scsi to use the non-burning drive and not have this issue. If you have only 1 CD[/DVD] drive (which is also the CD[/DVD] burner) you may want to set up an entry in your bootloader for ide-scsi and only boot into it when actually ripping CDs.

growisofs is known to have issues hanging when used in conjuction with ide-scsi in some cases. The kernel development team is aware of the problem and is not interested in fixing it as it is considered deprecated.
