I don't know what that was for, but your attachment is good.
Full of gratitude as you can imagine.I am also following sag47 who recommended easypeasy.
I don't remember if there was a set up screen but I think it came straight on.
If my attachment is good then that is something.

cd $workdir

wget 'http://cesium.di.uminho.pt/pub/linuxmint/stable/10/linuxmint-10-gnome-dvd-amd64.iso' -O image.iso || (echo 'Failed to download image'; exit 1)

cdrecord -v speed=1 dev=/dev/sr0 image.iso || (echo 'Failed to burn CD'; exit 1)

echo 'Done!'
exit 0
Now, save it and close the editor. Make sure there is a blank DVD into the DVD burner. Back in the terminal, enter this:

Code:
chmod a+x burnmint
./burnmint
(DO NOT run this without a blank DVD, it will fail!)

And wait until it's done!
Will put it on hold till I can get a blank dvd or after xmas-so maybe tomorrow

If the thread is solved then as the OP you should mark the thread as [Solved] via the Thread tools.

There is no need for any personal attacks nor labeling.

As for gender here at LQ, we do have very knowledgeable and helpful ladies who actively participate.

I wasn't trying to be rude, I just explained what you should do with threads that are solved.

I decided to do a search for the phrase "thread hijacking" in this forum. In seems that, in such an amazingly helpful forum, that a a policy regarding this has somehow been overlooked.

I've read the LQ Rules and I think that the forth point in those rule could use a little expansion for the benefit of these forums. I've consequently started another thread about this subject here.

Just hoping to be helpful and get some more eyes on this subject to circumvent as much feather ruffling as can reasonably be circumvented in this area.

Thanx.

Then why are you both hijacking and ressurecting this dead thread?
