growisofs has the best command flag ever
With all the hype about Star Wars, I think this is very appropriate. growisofs is a DVD command-line recorder. It can be used this way:
growisofs -Z /dev/dvd StarWars.avi
The command has a lot of options, but one of them will catch your eye in the man page. If you find yourself having problems with growisofs and feel like you can take a risk, try with the -use-the-force-luke= option. For example:
-use-the-force-luke=dummy for Test Write mode.
Enjoy! and may the Force be with you.
