mine is pentium 133, 192 MB RAM, fast 7200rpm 80GB IDE drive.

i found pipes to be a bottleneck.

from file cdrecord can record 52x without ANY problems

but even with

cat file|cdrecord -dummy ... it can't reach 32x

cat /dev/zero|cdrecord -dummy ... can't reach 40x

can i optimize pipes somewhat??

bigpipes are enabled.

will changing size to by for eg. 16*PIPE_SIZE instead of 4*PIPE_SIZE (64k)
