Nero Linux NeroLinux


I thought I would post this for those who may have tried to use NeroLinux for burning audio CDs and have been getting "unspecified target error" during writing the Lead in.

This error will appear if you do not have the program 'mp3info' installed to your system.

To solve the problem, simply install 'mp3info' and all will be OK

For Debian users:

Ensure you are logged in as root or use 'su', then,
type in: apt-get install mp3info

Cheers,
Greenie

You can also switch to a beautiful open source tool, like k3b (it works on Gnome as well, in case you were wondering).

Yes it does but you may need to download the some packages for it to work just use

Well I installed k3b 0.12.2 and took a look, I have the following feedback to offer:

Positives (compared with NeroLinux):
* Correctly determines my CD Burners maximum write speed.
* Includes a feature to edit gap between audio tracks (NeroLinux lacks this feature!)
* Easier to use
* Includes a handy audio converter

Negatives (compared with NeroLinux)
* Requires a lot of kde files (not good for gnome users)
* Bigger footprint on the hardisk than NeroLinux
* Cannot customise the project view, ie: configure the columns in the project pane
* Won't do a DAO simulation (NeroLinux will do it), I get the following debug report from k3b:
