Burn Slackware to DVD + R


The iso file is in my downloads directory but Brasero is barking about something I haven't seen before-
The DVD + R should be able to hold these files:-

Shouldn't I just be able to tell Brasero to burn the iso as an image?

yes, burn it as an image, not as a file to be added into your DVD

Slackware 14.1 has been sucessfully burned to a DVD+R.-

I finished reading the installation instructions yesterday.

Before installing this distro I want to read the Chapter on Package Management and find out how to update Slackware.

willysr, kikinovak, sycamorex, frankbell and genss: Thank you for your help and guidance.

Hi,

Welcome to Slackware!

I suggest that you be sure to md5sum check the downloaded ISO image before burning;
Quote:
From Media burning
-- MD5SUM:
M$Windows iso md5sum checking <- LQ Post on how too
md5sum.exe <- M$Win Application to perform md5sum checking.
winMd5Sum Portable <- FREE + Good for all M$ Windows
You should also check the burnt Install DVD ISO;
Quote:
CdromMd5sumsAfterBurning <- 'Describes some ways to check the validity of a burnt CD, either via the md5sum or via cmp (compare)'.
Sure the referenced link is for CD but you should be able to adapt and use the procedures.

You can look at: http://slackbook.org/beta/ which is still in development.

Hope this helps.

The Slackbook has been very helpful.
Thanks Onebuck!
