Kernel failure while writing DVD-RAM

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I'm testing DVD-RAM writing and reading for reliability under Fedoras 10
and 5.  While writing some files under F10 this afternoon, there was a
kernel failure.  Details below:

This is a standard installation from a Fedora 10 DVD, whose image was
taken from the web.

Other than "yup, it's broken", does the above trace mean anything to
anyone, and is there anything I can do to make it work reliably or even
to diagnose it further?

fillDVD2 is my app, written in C, which simply writes sequential files
of 1 MB each to the DVD on /dev/sr0.  I can post the source if anyone
wants to see it.

Looking further ahead, the aim was to try to fix writing DVD-RAM under
Fedora 5.  We know this is broken, and I was hoping to back-port the F10
code to F5.  Up to now, we had only observed failures under F5, never
F10 - this is the first.  The failures were entirely different: F5 would
occasionally fail to write beyond 4 GB, and would consistently write
DVD-RAMs that showed allocation errors when examined by the Philips
udf_test application.  F10 has never exhibited either of those failures.
F5 has never shown an oops.  Now it seems I can no longer rely on the
F10 UDF code either.
