Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

i think i have found a bug in the new dvd+rw-tools version 5.14. I understand that growisofs is just a frontend to cdrecord, but I use K3b to automate everything so I cannot provide an exact command line I am using....whatever K3B passes to growisofs I guess....anyway here's the problem:
No matter what type of dvd I burn, (VIDEO_TS, data, dvd image), it burns perfectly up until the closing of the disc....it spins around while it's supposedly closing the session.....sounds like it cant read the place it wants to seek to on the disc because it keeps spinning up and down with the burning red light on....then it finally finishes a minute later with a success message. I have tried 4 different types of media... DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW....all do the exact same thing. However, everything works PERFECTLY with dvd+rw-tools 5.12. Go figure. Also, could someone inform of a place to post this bug to the developers if a solution cannot be found? I will provide any information upon request...thanks so much for the help.
Thanks for the reply...I'd just like to say that a new slack pack is available for dvd+rw-tools now (5.17) and it apparently fixes this problem. Make the jump from 5.14 to 5.17 for anyone else experiencing similar issues.
