dvdrecord & slackware-12.0-install-dvd.iso


Hello

I actually have Slackware 11 in my computer, I has downloaded the slackware-12.0-install-dvd.iso via torrent but now I need to record the ISO image to a physical dvd. Now I was downloaded the dvdrtools-0.2.1, it is similar to the cdrecord. OK I untar, ./configure, make, make install, all runs very well then scanbus for scsi devices, my dvdrw is in 6,0,0 and then I try the following command line:

Code:
dvdrecord -v speed=4 -dao dev=6,0,0 slackware-12.0-install-dvd.iso
And the answer is

Code:
dvdrtools v0.2.1

The current version of cdrecord handles dvd's just fine. Try that instead. cdrtools.

I was unable to use cdrecord to make a DVD-R (said I needed cdrecord-ProDVD version) so I used growisofs from the dvd+rw-tools package which worked like a charm.

growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=image.iso

the newest cdrtools has cdrecord-prodvd capability built in. I've used growisofs too.
/# cdrecord --version

Slackware 11 doesn't need "dvdrtools" to burn a DVD. You use growisofs.

Here's an extract from slackware-12.0/isolinux/README.TXT:

"On my system, here's the command I'd use to burn the resulting DVD ISO:

growisofs -Z /dev/dvdrw=slackware-dvd.iso"


Of course, you will need to subsitute your DVD device and the name of your iso file.

(Slackware 11.0)

al@p3srv:~$ cdrecord --version
Cdrecord-Clone 2.01

al@p3srv:~$ cat ~/bin/dvdb
#!/bin/sh
# file to dvd command
# growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd -r -J /path/to/files
# this script burn a .iso to dvd
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=$1;
# end


al@p3srv:~$ dvdb /path_to_dot_iso_file

That burns dvd+r for me (burnt the Slack 12.0 DVD just fine)

Note the use of a sh script named dvdb

Also note that use it as user, not root.

(If I'm not mistaken, growisofs makes use of cdrecord?)

Alan.

It makes use of mkisofs, which is part of the cdrtools package.

Excellent this command works to me:

Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0 -r -J slackware-12.0-install-dvd.iso
Excelent job my friends. Thanks.

Great!

And, since it's already an iso file (instead of a folder of another kind of files, say, data files) and all you want is to burn it to dvd then what rkelson shared should work.

The -r and -J in your command (I think) signifies rockridge and joilet file extensions (some of which makes it also an MS Windows dvd readable) and those may already in the iso file (but I'm stretching my knowlege here).

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/sr0=slackware-12.0-install-dvd.iso

I added in the -dvd-compat but I forget now what it does, why I originally chose to use it in the first place.

Alan.

Question Anyone have a solution?

I'm having problems, even after installing cdrtools 2.01.01a7x
I still get "the file is too big" even though it's not.

More info:
Previously, I was trying "mkisofs" and "cdrecord", but it would say the media needed to be reloaded by hand; when I did, however, it would just try to start the format (the auto-format when writing to DVD+RW) over again, and again it would ask me to reload the media. With "mkisofs" it never actually got to the point of writing, though it appeared to format (it gave a time elapsed). Here is the "mkisofs/cdrecord" command I was using:

Code:
mkisofs -r -iso-level 4 -print-size slackware-13.1-install-dvd.iso ?>/dev/null | cdrecord -v -dev=3,0,0 tsize=2108840 slackware-13.1-install-dvd.iso
(also tried "-waiti" in there, though I think that might be irrelevant except for multi-session DVDs).

This DVD drive supports DVD+RW.

Post Solution and a follow-up question regarding "growisofs":

Finally, it's fixed!

There is an option to another command "growisofs," to add options usually used in other programs (???), but it is not much documented in the man page. It's called "-use-the-force-luke" and apparently I needed to specify the "dao" mode (with "cdrecord" it's the default, so you don't need to specify it).

So instead of using "mkisofs" and "cdrecord," I am now using "growisofs" in this fashion:
Code:
growisofs -use-the-force-luke=dao -Z -dvd-compat -speed=2 /dev/sr0=slackware-13.1-install-dvd.iso
Note that without the "-use-the-force-luke=dao" the burn fails. With speed set to 2 (recommended), it only took about 20 minutes to burn the Slackware 13.1 ISO to DVD+RW. Other tutorials (such as making an ISO from 2 directories, CD-burning, and more) are at this site, and I really like that their tutorials reflect modern usage, not just CD-size ISOs: http://cng.seas.rochester.edu/CNG/do...d_burning.html


Out of curiousity, does anyone notice what the columns "RBU" and "UBU" stand for? Mine ran at:
RBU: mostly 100%, sometimes 99.9%
UBU: 94.4%
