Question Burning


I've been tring to find a burning program for Solaris 7. I haven't had to much luck on this so far.

What is a program I can use for burning on solaris 7?

Thx in advanced.

For solaris 8, u can download cdrecord-1.9 from

But I do not think that Sun provides such program for Solaris 7.

Ok I now downloaded cdrecord-1.10, and now I have another problem. I have been reading through all the readme's and manuals that came with it. But it always refers back to using smake. So I got smake from the site they say to, then well I'm not sure if I have done to much reading and missed a easy point. But I can't seem to get smake to install/compile.

Yes I know I should read the manuals and be able to get it. As I said more then likely I just done to much reading in the past few days. But does anyone know where I can get a manual that will tell me how to install smake then setup/compile the cdrecord program. By this I mean not 50 little manuals that keep saying the same thing over and over and not really helping.

Thanks for those who can help this lost fool.

Well I took a little break and went back to reading and looking at what was done. It was just a link was in the wrong place and make whats in the PATH.

Now though when I go to run 'make' this is the error I get:

# make
==> CONFIGURING RULES "../incs/sparc-sunos5-cc/rules.cnf"
loading cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... sparc-sun-solaris2.7
checking for Cygwin environment... no
checking for mingw32 environment... no
checking for EMX/OS2 environment... no
checking for executable suffix... configure: error: installation or configuration problem: compiler cannot create executables.
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `../incs/sparc-sunos5-cc/rules.cnf'
Current working directory /cdtools/cdrtools-1.10/conf
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `all

I have tried running it from top level directory, and a few other directoies and it doesn't matter I still get that error. I take it I more then likely have to set a environment for the Cygwin, mingw32 & EMX/OS2. I did look this time thorugh all the README's and couldn't find anything to help.

So if anyone can has had this problem how was it corrected. Or where can I get some help with now getting the make to well make.

Thanks in advanced again.
