Question DVD Burning in Redhat 7.2,8,9?


Hi everyone,

I'm about to put a distro of redhat on my new workstation where I'll be doing data processing. I need to be able to write DVD's, but I also want the stability of redhat 7.2 (the distro that has served me faithfully over hte last 2+ years). Anyway, can I burn DVD's on 7.2? Or must I install 8 or 9? I am not a DVD/CD R/W wizard, but i remember trying to get cdroast working on 7.2, and I had problems with it (never worked completely). Any suggestions, advice, or experiences to share would be appreciated.

kris

The command line prog cdrecord has updates for dvd burning.

Basically, you need to make an iso image and burn that to the dvd.

Thanks Peter. Sounds simple. So this should be easy to do on 7.2 I presume?

i'm doing it on redhat 6.2
download the patched version of mkisofs that allows bigger than 2 gig files.
download the hacked cdrecord called dvdrecord.

mkisofs -r -J -o image.iso /directorieswithfiles
dvdrecord -v -dao dev=0,0,0 speed=4 image.iso

Thanks a million guys! I feel much better now knowing I don't need to upgrade just for that purpose.

Cheers,

K3B burns DVD's as well, with a nice gui interface.

Loaded libmad rpm, and then the k3b already compiled for redhat8 locatd on the website, but got this funky error:

k3b: relocation error: k3b: undefined symbol: static_QUType_varptr

If you know what this means, please let me know and I'll resintall the program on my computer and attempt to implement the fix you suggest. I tried a google search on it, but most of what came up was in other languages I didn't understand.

Cheers,
kris
