I am migrating from Windows (XP) to Suse 9.1. I have vmware for linux (host) to run most of the win apps that I haven't replaced in Linux. I know 3d games won't run under vmware or linux (not yet), so I plan to dual-boot to support kids playing games. I myself never play 3d games and will keep my PC on Linux >99% of the time.
The problem has arisen that I can't burn DVD's under Linux and Nero (running in a virtual machine on vmware) will not even start. In fact, it really hoses vmware so that I have to reboot the host to recover it. All I need is to be able to burn the VOB fileset to DVD. I can do all other tasks under vmware, except burn the DVD.
I have searched the internet and only find k3b and Xcdroast (for GUIs) The text commands are also there (cdrecord etc) but those are so complicated and cumbersome that I don't see that as any better than rebooting back to Winxp.
So the question is: have I missed some program out there that is quick and easy to install and use or will I need to plan on dual booting?
BTW, I burn quite a lot of DVD's (data backups and distributions and home movies)
Any recommendations and links would be of help. Thanks
