Unhappy Problems burning Slackware64-current to DL-DVD


I'm having some serious issues trying to get the ISO I retrieved using AlienBob's script to burn to a Dual Layer DVD correctly.

I've reduced the burn speed to the lowest possible 1x, and each time the data verification comes up the files seems to be corrupt and don't burn correctly.

Am I doing something wrong or is there an unknown limitation on my end of Dual Layer DVDs having trouble with data disks?

I'm using K3b as my software with a HP Lightscribe DVD Burner and Memorex DL DVD+Rs.

The files are okay, but it's when I actually burn the media that everything goes completely wrong.

Maybe I'm not setting up K3b correctly or there is something wrong with how K3b burns to DL media.

Have you tried burning one from the CLI instead of K3b?

growisofs -speed=2 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=whateverthenameofyourISOis.iso

I'll try that soon. I'm currently attempting to do a version-to-current upgrade since I still have an old copy of 13.37. if that fails I'll just do that and see if it has any issues again.

That should work just fine; I've done that several times.

I tried several methods using various UI and CLI tools for Linux and Windows, but to no avail. Maybe there's something I'm missing, but maybe it could be a limitation on Dual-Layer disks. I did however manage to get my 13.37 copy upgraded to current, but it took some time.

I had to run slackpkg with the switches for update first, then clean-system (to remove outdated and removed packages), run install-new (to add new packages for dependency resolutions), and then run upgrade-all to finally get everything up-to-date.

I'm going to see about getting a 8 GB flash drive soon so I can make a USB installation drive.

Thanks for the help, I'll mark this as solved but if anyone has any methods that have allowed you to burn DL media feel free to add them.

Thanks.
