    Smile Using DVD+RW/+R as dump medium

    Hello,
    I have made a patch in amanda 2.4.5
    which allows to use DVD as dump medium.
    This works fine over the last year so my question is

    In which way can I insert the patch into the new release ?

    Arrow DVD-patch !!

    The patch is not tested under 2.5

    The description follows in a extra mail
    in amanda.conf:

    tapedev "dvdrw:/local/cache/dvdrw-taper:/dev/dvdram" #

    in /etc/fstab

    /dev/dvdram /local/cache/dvdrw-taper/data iso9660 ro,noauto,user,exec 0 0

    there are some problems with the submount daemon so switch ist off.

    Default Dump with DVD-R only

    OK

    To your comments:
    Burning a DVD-R works also with a script like this:
    amanda.conf:

    tapedev "dvdrw:/local/cache/dvdR+taper:/dev/dvdramONE"
    /dev/dvdramONE -> fd0
    is a little trick, you have an other device which is offline, so all works
    only the burn must be startet by hand. We do this every month.

    script:#
    BURNDIR=/local/cache/dvdR+taper/burn
    TAPENUM=`cat $BURNDIR/../lasttape`
    TAPENUM=`expr $TAPENUM + 1`
    if [ $TAPENUM -lt 10 ]
    then
    TAPE=RFmonat0${TAPENUM}
    else
    TAPE=RFmonat${TAPENUM}
    fi
    echo $TAPENUM > $BURNDIR/../lasttape
    rm $BURNDIR/*
    amlabel RFmonat $TAPE
    amdump RFmonat

    and after a mail is reach us:

    growisofs -Z /dev/hdc -use-the-force-luke=notray -use-the-force-luke=tty -speed=2.4 -J -R -pad -quiet /local/cache/dvdR+taper/burn
