How do you convert ISO to img to access RPM files


Hi All,

I have downloaded linux Mandriva 10.1 official on my computer and the downloaded files came as Mandrakelinux-10.1-Official-Download-CD1.i586.iso and etc. Now, I want to burn them to CDs such they are bootable and contained all applications as .rpm.

I have done that once in past, but can't remember. This is due to a lack of keeping a good records of my fixes.

Please tell me what the commands are to use step by step.

Thank you

Use a CD burning software, select burn an image and "burn the image" on the cd

If you download an .iso image to burn to a CD, you are not concerned with whether it has rpm files....Just boot the CD (#1), and the installed does the rest.

Like the other say. once you burn the iso the rpm install files will be on the cd. If you are looking for a particular application you might find it on one of the directories on the cd. but You can't convert an iso into an rpm (as far as I know.)

So in other words, I should be able to use my xcdroast and burn there CDs?
Why am I keeping thinking about the following:

cdrecord -v speed=10 dev=0,0,0 track.img


Thanks anyway, I will try it to night. I tought I once burn the first cd and when I open here is what I saw:

Mandrakelinux-10.1-Official-Download-CD1.i586.iso and I was confused because I could not see any rpm files.

Do I really make sense here?

Thanks for your patience

You have to select the option to "burn from image" or some equivalent statement. You can't just put the .iso file on the CD.
(a common problem)

If all you saw was a single file ...iso then you did not burn the CD correctly. You can use cdrecord to burn the CD just use Mandrake...iso file instead of track.img
