There are two solutions.


Put "cdrecord-ProDVD" into your /opt/csw/bin directory.  Rename cdrecord 
to cdrecord.out and copy 
"ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/ProDVD/cdrecord-wrapper.sh" to 
/opt/csw/bin as cdrecord.  Edit the last line in the new cdrecord file 
to point to your /opt/csw/bin/cdrecord-ProDVD, ex.

 From -              exec cdrecord-ProDVD "$@"

To -                   exec /opt/csw/bin/cdrecord-ProDVD "$@"

Basically, cdrecord-ProDVD has all the same options as cdrecord and can 
be renamed cdrecord, but you need a license to activate it, so the 
cdrecord-wrapper script is required.


If Blastwave would ever update their version from v 0.98alpha13 to v 
0.98alpha15 you would simply add cdrecord-ProDVD to /opt/csw/bin as 
cdrecord.prodvd, go to xcdroast's setup menu and add the license key.

I searched the internet and found a beautiful xcdroast v0.98alpha15 that 
used gtk2.  All the buttons and bars looked gorgeous.  This is located at:
