X-CD-ROAST(1)									    X-CD-ROAST(1)

NAME
       xcdroast - graphical frontend to create or copy CDs.

SYNOPSIS
       xcdroast  [-d  <debug-level>]  [-c <config-directory>] [-l <lib-directory>] [-o] [-n] [-i]
       [-w] [-a] [-f "<list of scsi-devices>"] [--display <display>] [--no-xshm]

DESCRIPTION
       xcdroast is a program-package dedicated to easy CD  creation.  It  combines  command  line
       tools like cdrecord, cdda2wav, readcd and mkisofs into a graphical user interface.

       With  a few simple mouse-clicks you can copy or create your own CDs, without long study of
       any command line parameters.

   OPTIONS
       -d <debug-level>
	      Run X-CD-Roast in debug mode, which causes a lot of text to be output on	the  con-
	      sole.  Set  the  debug-level  to 10 and reproduce the problem to generate a useable
	      bug-report.

       -c <config-directory>
	      Sets the directory where X-CD-Roast should look for the config  files.  By  default
	      this is set to $HOME/.xcdroast.

       -l <lib-directory>
	      Sets  the directory where X-CD-Roast should look for its library files (like icons,
	      translations  and  sounds).  By	default   this	 is   /usr/lib/xcdroast-0.98   or
	      /usr/local/lib/xcdroast-0.98 (depends on your installation).

       -o     This disables multibyte font support. This might be handy when you have problems to
	      display some special characters in the on-screen texts. (e.g. german umlauts)

       -n     Disables the cdrtools version check and allows X-CD-Roast to start when even  wrong
	      versions	of  cdrecord, mkisofs, readcd or cdda2wav are installed. Use at own risk!
	      This also overrides the forced exit when you don't meet the 800x600 minimal resolu-
	      tion requirement.

       -i     Ignore the result of the SCSI-scan. Allows to start X-CD-Roast even when no devices
	      (CD-Reader or Writer) could be found. This way you can  use  X-CD-Roast  still  for
	      mastering images.

       -w     Don't  use  cdrecord-ProDVD, even when it is installed. Sometimes it may be desire-
	      able to use only the free version of cdrecord. In this case you can disable  ProDVD
	      support here without needing to deinstall the ProDVD-binary.

       -a     Disable  additional  scans  for  CD-Writers or CD-Readers. In addition to the usual
	      SCSI transport support (generic scsi), X-CD-Roast also  supports	the  experimental
	      ATA-transport  of  the latest linux kernels. If you set this option then this extra
	      support will be disabled.

       -f "<list of scsi-devices>"
	      Will not scan for devices, but force X-CD-Roast to use the  given  ones  (semicolon
	      seperated  list). Most useful on AIX or OpenBSD system where scanning fails. Can be
	      also used to use remote-SCSI devices.

       --display <display>
	      Use the designated X display.

       --no-xshm
	      Do not use the X Shared Memory extension. If X-CD-Roast is  being  displayed  on	a
	      remote  X  server,  this probably needs to be enabled. Also useful for any X server
	      that doesn't properly support the X shared memory extension.  This will  result  in
	      slower performance than with X shared memory enabled.

Multiple concurrent instances
       It is possible to start X-CD-Roast more than once at the same time. This way you can write
       to several CD-Writers if your system can handle the load.

       You have to start each instance of X-CD-Roast with the -f 'devicelist'  option  where  you
       tell  it  which device should be used. Without that option X-CD-Roast would scan automati-
       cally for devices, which could interrupt the other X-CD-Roast process.  Be  sure  to  give
       each  instance  of X-CD-Roast own devices. Also note that writing two CDs at the same time
       requires that the writers are at a own IDE bus each. (Real SCSI devices should be fine.)

       Example: Start the first instance 'xcdroast -f "0,0,0"' and the second with  'xcdroast  -f
       "0,1,0;0,2,0"'.	This  way  the first instance would use the device named 0,0,0 and ignore
       the others, and the second instance would only use 0,1,0 and  0,2,0.  See  the  X-CD-Roast
       Setup-Menu about the device numbers.
