hmmm...no crashes with gcdmaster here. I have ~700 Meg of RAM and a 1.2 gig
swap partition and I have been loading a 546 Meg file and playing with it
the past while. Box has a PIII Coppermine chip. Seems stable for me on
Fedora Core linux and the latest gcdmaster code. One thing I would check is to ensure that you have the right options for your CD in /etc/cdrdao.conf or the equivalent ~/.cdrdao.conf. One thing that I wish gcdmaster would have is better options for manipulation of the actual cdrdao commands.
