Arrow How to burn copies of Knoppix on Debian Linux


Hello all,
I would like to burn some copies of my knoppix cd as I'm currently working on at least 5 computers which are being built and need an OS , I was wondering what software I need to do the burning, How to do it, and whether or not it makes good copies of the CD's.
Thanks to all the people who help on the Newbie forums your stars, unsung stars.... cheers.

You need cdrecord and your burner configured as a scsi device. I find the command line easiest to use for burning iso's. Here's how to do it;
do cdrecord-scanbus (shows the address of the device eg. 0,1,0) as root.
do cdrecord dev=0,1,0 -v /path/to/image.iso (say the image.iso is in /home/joe/knoppix then the line is cdrecord dev=0,1,0 -v /home/joe/knoppix/knoppix_image.iso).
That's it. Much quicker than M$ based stuff.
Have burned a number of knoppix discs and other stuff and not had any coasters.

If you must use gui then try XCDRoast (although cdrecord is easier IMO).

Don't forget to do a:
# cat knoppix_version_num.md5
# md5sum /dev/scd0
and compare the output. If they are the same, you have an exact duplicate of the original.

If you want to do it Windows-like use K3b <- included in the KDE GUI and absolutely intuitive and easy to use. (Run K3b-setup first).

Question Thanks all.... I have a copy on cd, how do I clone the CD?

Thanks for the advice,
I have a copy of Knoppix on CD and I was wondering how I clone it (from CD drive to CD-R drive). While I haven't tried cdrecord I do like the sound of it. Anyway thanks.

Knoppix runs KDE and thus K3b. K3b can clone, I advise to use an interim temp file on the harddisk, not burning on the fly.

If you want to do it the CLI-way read this thread.

Don't forget jlturbos suggestion (md5sum)!
