Summary: K3b can not create *.iso images bigger then 4G and
escapes without any message in such a case
Product: SUSE Linux 10.1
Version: Final
Platform: 32bit
OS/Version: SuSE Linux 10.1

K3b can not create *.iso images bigger then 4G and escapes without any message
in such a case.

Q1: Can somebody reproduce the situation or othewise - a build big iso file
(bigger than 5-6 GigaBytes. I should look for other reasons of this behaior?

It hapened that K3b was asked to create an *.iso image (of a big folder -
bigger than 6GB). It started to work but after a while it closed at all without
any message. Cheching the folder you find a 4Giga *.iso file created but it
seems incorrectly created and NOT containing the whole initial (6G) folder
items.

I do not know if the iso standard is the problem (suppose - which i do not know
- the standard does not allow bigger *.isi files). But even if so, K3b has to
tell the user whats going on and stay open before shutting down. In the same
time K3b should offer other extention for the file (if the iso-standard
limitations exist) and create a (non iso(9660?)) file being able to mount this
file and/or - burn it on a double layer DVD DL.

Any comments?

Actually, I would like to know

Q2: ... if K3k cn burn double layer DVDs and/or iso files isolating in such a
way the option of hardware faile (bad sectors where K3b executables are
installed.

In this connection -

Q3: ... are there any tools (in openSUSE 10.1) to check the surface of the hard
disk?
