[vlc-devel] pending release of libcdio 0.68 (Was A snag with RH/FC version)

In what I hope will be a short while, there will be a libcdio 0.68
release and it would be good if that could be in the RH/FC rather than
a CVS version that was there last time I checked.

Even though most of the changes are for OS's that are not direct
concern to RH/Fedora (in particular Solaris and Microsoft Windows),
there are a couple of fundamental and important changes. 

I've broken out the yellow mode1 reading in the back-end more
properly, and linking --with-versioned-libs now checks for the
presence of GNU ld.

CVS is one place to get the candidate release. Info on CVS access is
   here: https://savannah.gnu.org/cvs/?group=libcdio

But for those who have a sourceforge.net account you can find a
candidate tarball on bashdb.sourceforge.net in

Sorry, I don't really know of or have a good public place to put this
right now.

It would be nice if there could be another release vcdimager, but I'm
a little worn out from trying to push that along - 0.7.20 still isn't
on ftp.gnu.org, although it is here:

or here:

There is a small bug fix in vcdimager CVS for libvcdinfo which will
save vlc from core dumping in VCD navigation.

After tidying things up on libcdio, I'll probably be shifting my focus
on getting GNU make do a better job at give trace and error output,
maybe something analogous to POSIX shell's "set -x", "set -v" and call
stack info. Probably with an eye towards having GNU make run in a
debugger. Some preliminary tests show it might not be too bad. At
least not as hard as the mess I encountered with the bash debugger
http://bashdb.sourceforge.net. (I'm also a little worn out trying to
push things along in vlc. The problem handling changing video streams
when going from a still frame to motion is no further along than when
I encountered this probably 1/2 year ago, and I still haven't a clue
as to how to track down let alone fix. I think it better to switch
than fight it or wait)
