BURNING software


Anyone know a good program that'll work with Red Hat 9 and a TDK 12/10/32a?

cdrecord. All else is a front end, so why not use the real tool?
# CD burning info
Is it configured and what is the device? Command this to find out:
cdrecord -scanbus

Almost all IDE cdburners work nearly the same in linux. Their speeds obviously are in the hardware not the software and special features such as overburn are too. Also, nearly all applications are simply graphical front ends for cdrecord. Now all you have to do is find the graphical front end that looks the nicest for you and use that

Might I suggest looking into:
www.freshmeat.net for any applications you are interested in, such as:
K3B



Cool

I just got K3B with synpatic last night and I think it is great. Check out www.k3b.org. It just uses cdrecord and cdrdao, but it is a nice frontend.

can you use k3b with Gnome? I like the look of K3b but I hate Kde.
is it just a matter of having the right Libraries installed? is there a specific Set of package I can install Just to get it working?

Usually KDEbase will install the necessary libs et al for running KDE applications. And yes, you can run (all?) nearly all applications from either environment in either evironment, without a hitch usually (just need to know the name to execute in this case it's k3b no biggie ).

Cool

KDE 3.1.2 rocks -- looks very nice -- I run it - I reccomend it..
I was a hard-core gnome man, till I gave the new version of KDE a whirl...

I'm a big fan of XCD-Roast in gnome...

simple, does the job, and doesn't blind you with flashy buttons and useless stuff
