I just saw Thomas' reply and may have opened pandora's box here.  Below is
my list.

But first a little information. On the opencsw servers in my account you
will find already the git repository under ~/src/external-vcs/libcdio. If
you don't want to do your own git checkout via

      git clone git://

I've compiled this on current10s. Would have tried on a 64-bit machine
as well, but I wasn't sure what that would
be called.

In the past I asked for a real CD or DVD drive with various kinds of
media (audio CD, data CD with an ISO-9660
filesystem)  to be attached for libcdio testing. I didn't want to
bother you, but if you don't mind if you could attach
devices and let me know privately where those are attached that'd help.

But since this is all remote, even better would be if you could build
and run "make test" on a physical box where
you can eject drives and put in CD's and see that things work, that'd
be even better.

As with Thomas and his shameless plug, I will put in a plug for mine.
I recently released a new version of remake.
There is no Solaris package for it yet. Git sources for that if you
don't want to get via
   git clone git://

is in ~/src/external-vcs/remake. I used those to build libcdio rather
than gmake. It would be nice if that were a
Solaris package.

Many thanks.
