Unhappy Need help burning CD on Slackware 10.2


Hi guys, I read all the threads but I can't get this to work. I can burn CDs on this machine from Win and also from Linux Live CDs (using KDE) but I run X and not KDE or gnome on this Slackware box.

I don't know what the problem is. I tried Chinaman's commands that I found in an old post and I get error messages from cdrecord.

The reason I can't burn this particular CD from a live CD is that it's bigger than available memory and the live CDs (running from RAM) all lock up- at least that's what happened on various versions of Slax and DSL. I also can't burn it from Win because the source file is on a reiserfs partition.

Thanks,
Randux

Have you tried to make the iso (mkisofs...) on a mounted partition.

I mean mouting an existing partition and write the iso to disk, then burn it.

Just a thought

Thanks but I am trying to write files which are not ISO. So I don't understand your suggestion.

You create an .iso of the files you want to burn, and burn the iso. Here's a good how-to over at IBM for burning CDs from the command line:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerwork.../l-cdburn.html

You can. ofcourse, run KDE apps (i.e. k3b) in a non-KDE desktop environment (flux/blackbox/xfce/fvwm etc. etc.) provided you have the KDE base, libs and qt packages installed (maybe one or two others).

EDIT; additional:

btw, there are reiserfs (and ext2/3) drivers available for Windows.

Thanks for the pointer. I'll look at it. I'm on to plan B now, back to burning it from a live CD since I realized that I can mount a dead partition as /tmp and then KDE will have enough work space to make an image.

Of course I don't have the KDE libs installed, that's the whole point!

Interesting note on various fs drivers available for win. But I don't trust win to do anything except play MP3s...

You're exactly right, it can't find the scsi driver. And the modprobe fails on init every time. I've been ignoring it.

I'll have to come back to this later. Right now I need to make some backups.

Thanks for the help guys.

Do you have the append=ide-scsi line in your /etc/lilo.conf? Something like this:

Code:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hda1
  append = "hdc=ide-scsi"
  Label = Linux
  read-only
Where /dev/hdc is your cdrom device (don't use the /dev/cdrom symlink).

Hi,

You load the modules from /etc/rc.d/rc.modules. You will need to un-comment the /sbin/modprobe ide-scsi.

Then add the append="hdc=ide-scsi" to the desired stanza lilo.conf. Don't forget to run lilo to update!


edit: If you use the kernel 2.6, then just put this in the correct stanza in lilo.conf;

append = "hdc=ide-cd"

HTH!

Hi,

I have noticed your post in the past! Several people have asked you to not use the aol speak. I now am asking you to not use it.

To use the aol speak makes the reading for understanding difficult.

The use of aol speak is for aol not LQ!

Your information would come across much better if you used proper written word along with GRAMMAR.

The thought is better conveyed by writing in fluid flow of information. Not broken!

If spelling is the problem, then use the spell check feature of LQ during the reply session.

Hi,

This is correct for kernels 2.4 or less to use scsi emulation. If you are using kernels 2.6 and above then;

Code:
append = "hdc=ide-cd hdd=ide-cd"

You can place the append in the stanza of choice within lilo.conf. Don't forget to run lilo to update.

HTH!

OD and Gary, thanks very much for the tips. Actually, I was able to do what I needed (kinda cool, actually, linux is really easy to administer!) I will have to get back to this. It's nice to know you guys are so helpful when someone has a problem.

Just a note, a lot of people from foreign countries (myself included) sometimes don't speak English so well. It's easy to think someone is aol-speaking when maybe their English isn't so good. We should all try to write clearly but not everyone can write on the same level.

Thanks again guys,
Rand
