Package for burning


Hi folks,

Slackware-11.0

I have "slamd64-11.0-dvd.iso" imgage download on this box. I can't find K3B here. Which package shall I use to burn the ISO image. TIA.

Remark: I'm going to wipe out Slackware-11.0 and install slamd64-11.0 on this box.

B.R.

I would use k3b (cuz it has never failed for me ... except when I was using FC5 with ext3). You can get it and install it from your slackware-11.0 CD/DVD in the 'extra/k3b' directory.

Hi folks,

Tks for your advice.


It'll be easier for me to get the ISO image burned with command line, because I'll erase the OS immediately afterwards.


Hi dive

I almost forgot the command line after running GUI burning.

On the directory of ISO image, run

# growisofs -Z /dev/hda=image.iso
(in my case DVD=/dev/hda)

What option shall be up to check CD quality after burning. I looked around man growisofs and can't resolve. TIA

I don't think growisofs has a verify option, but maybe if you just burn at a slow speed it should be ok if you are worried.

just md5sum the image and then the drive ... if they are equal, you're good to go.

for example
Code:
md5sum slackware-11.0.iso
md5sum /dev/hdc
Oh, and bashburn might be nice if you don't have xserver around.

This page has a k3b package that was "borrowed" from arch linux gimmick. It was packaged for a 2.6 kernel but seems to work fine in slack 10.2 with 2.4.31. slackware libdvdcss and libdvdread are here as well.http://ibmercurial.tripod.com/slackwaredvd.htm

Noted with tks.

Now I have problem on burning the DVD.iso image on DVD+RW.

# growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=slamd64-11.0-install-dvd.iso
Code:
Executing 'builtin_dd if=slamd64-11.0-install-dvd.iso of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'
:-( write failed: Invalid argument)
Unfortunately I have only 2 spare DVD+RW disc available. Is there any solution? TIA

Can I blank+burning DVD in one go? If NO how to blank DVD+RW with cdrecord. Tks.


Edit:
Blanking DVD+RW

# growisofs -Z /dev/dvd=/dev/zero
Code:
WARNING: /dev/dvd already carries isofs!
About to execute 'builtin_dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/dvd obs=32k seek=0'

         0/4700372992 ( 0.0%) @0x, remaining ??:?? RBU 100.0%

Input/output error
:-( write failed: Input/output error
/dev/dvd: flushing cache

/dev/dvd: writing lead-out
Is it the correct command. If YES why error was indicated finally?

Can speed be controlled? Tks

cdrecord has a -blank option but I'm guessing that you need the pro-dvd version of cdrtools to use it (I haven't used it yet). You can download from here:

I have the DVD iso image burned with growisofs on a DVD+RW. The correct syntax should be;

Typically it's not a good idea to burn using either the 'cdrecord' or 'growisofs' commands directly ... mostly because you don't know what you're doing in most cases, and few people can tell you exactly what options you should use unless they have some more detailed info on your system.

Thus, USE BASHBURN OR K3B !!!

However, if for some reason you absolutely can't use them, then perhaps the command would look something like this:

Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=1 -Z /dev/hdc=/path/file.iso

Code:
:-( unable to open64("/dev/hdc",O_RDONLY): No such device or address
Remark: I'm running SATA HD


The only reason not installing k3b/bashburn, the front-end package, is slackware-11.0 will be erased immediately after burning to be replaced with slamd64-11.0.

I'll install an additional CD-Writer on the box and run LIveCD to get the DVD iso image burned rather than waiting more time. Tks.


The strange thing is;
# cdrecord -scanbus

can't find the device, the DVD writer.
