Subject: [gentoo-user] Cdda2wav testers needed
Date: Tue, 20 Oct 2015 10:35:23
There have been some problems in cdda2wav that could have been discovered much 
earlier if there was better feedback.

A nasty problem is active since Spring 2014 or even since late 2013 if you did not 
use c2checks. So the problem (that depends on some compiler constraints) was really
visible since Spring 2014 when (as a hacky fix against dumb drives) the c2check 
was removed from the paraopts=proof macro.

Since the problem is not triggered by the Sun C-compiler, it was not detected 
while testing at that time.

	Since some years, there is unfortunately few feedback on cdrtools. But
	quality also depends on user feedback.....

The effect is that cdda2wav flags errors even though there is no problem:

 100%  track 21  recorded with audible hard errors
 100%  track 22  recorded with audible hard errors

There was a problem with an uninitalized variable in libparanoia in case of 
disabled C2 Checks. The problem was fixed two weeks ago and published in a 
preliminary copy of the schily tools:


Since yesterday evening, the paraopts=proof macro again includes c2check and 
there is an automatic fallback to the "no c2" case when the drive does not 
support C2 Checks. Note that this was only tested with a single drive so far,
so we need more tests here from people with different hardware.

Please test and report.
