Graveman on Linux - burn baby burn burn

Linux is full of alternatives. Having a lot of free opensource alternatives is what makes Linux world go interestingly round and round.

Here's another alternative on handling DVD/CD linux tasks.

DVD/CD Task management

Graveman is a frontend for cdrtools, dvd+rw-tools and sox that provides a graphical user interface for handling common CD/DVD burning tasks like burning Audio CDs, Data CDs and DVDs, duplicate CDs, and clean rewritable CD/DVD media. Currently runs in GNOME and KDE very well and also uses GTK2 library from its interface.

Graveman feature:
* burn audio cd (from wav, ogg, mp3, flac, m3u and pts)
* burn data cd and dvd
* duplicate cd

* clean rewritable cd and dvd
