LINUX CD creation ?


I have CD-R/RW by Sony 32x10x40x. It works under Windows XP fine. I downloaded the Limbo(beta) from how can I in Linux create a CD from ISO file. Do I need to install some program?

First as root run
cdrecord -scanbus
and see if your CD-R/RW is listed.

Linux has a 'command line' utility called cdrecord. Just type 'man cdrecord' at a prompt ... or 'info cdrecord'. I just say learn to use a command-line interface and get away from the GUI (does everything for me) way of doing things. GUI's are just wrappers around what's really going on.

here's what I do to burn an .iso

$ cdrecord -v speed=10 dev=0,0,0 somefile.iso

ofcourse ... by doing as Neo said above , you'll get the proper device numbers ... mine being 0,0,0 on cdrecord -scanbus
