Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Um, oh, that is a (symbolic) link. I seem to remember that /dev/pts has something to do with the mouse / serial port(s)?!? That doesn't seem to be a valid devide to read data from . This path won't work, you have to change it but I dunno how, not enough data on K3b .
What you are saying makes sense. I dont remember making any changes to the configuration files. I also tried to burn as root, doesnt work. It was working fine last week. Anyways, do you know where I can find instructions to burn video dvd through commandline? Also, would removing k3b and reinstalling it help?
Turns out that the .IFO file in the VIDEO_TS that I downloaded off the net was corrupted. It was corrupted for 2 movies and I thought there was a problem with K3B. I used ifoedit (using wine) to correct the IFO's and it works fine now. Thanks everyone who replied.
ksgill, I have the exact same problem, down to the very same error message. If you don't mind, would you tell me how you used ifoedit to fix the problem? I dled the program off the internet and installed using wine. But what do I do next?
