gtoaster or other cdwriter


Hello,

I'm using RedHat 8.0 and I have selected CDWriter from the SystemTools menu. I would like to back up some files to CD.

I see that I am prompted to enter the root password in order to run an application gtoaster.

The graphical interface with gtoaster is complicated. Is there a way to burn from the command line? Is there an internet resource for this? And my experience with gtoaster, when I had it working a while ago, is that I can not add files to my disk once I add one file. It is considered full. Is this supposed to be?

I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

Thank you for your reply.

I've gone to xcdroast.org and downloaded the files for RH8, four in all.
cdrtools-cdda2wav-2.00.3-1-i386.rpm
cdrtoos-cdrecord-2.00.3-1-i386.rpm
cdrtools-mkisofs-2.00....
and
xcdroast-0.98alpha14-1.i386.rpm

I su root and I run rpm -ivh for each of the cdrtools files and I see errors:
- for mkisofs
flie /usr/bin/mkisofs from install of cdrtools-mkisofs-2.00.3-1 conflicts with file from package mkisofs-1.10-14
- run rpm cdrecord
file /usr/bin/cdrecord from install of cdrtools-cdrecord-2.00.3-1 conflicts with file from package cdrecord-1.10-14
file /usr/bin/devdump from install...
file /usr/bin/isodump from install...
And others all conflict. But typing xcdroast on the command line yields "command not found". So is it installed? What is installed? How do I run what is installed? Do I need to uninstall what is installed before installing xcdroast?

Got it..When I first ran cdrecord from the command line I got an error and thought it didn't work. But I disovered that I need to specify the dev type..

cdrecord dev=0,0 -v -eject Myfile.iso

And I was able to back up an file created with mkisofs.

If you still want to install X-CD-Roast.
You can try an upgrade:
Code:
rpm -Uvh
Or you can remove the old packages (rpm -e) and install the new ones after.

If you want to find X-CD-Roast, type:
Code:
whereis xcdroast
