CDrecord; how to install


I am having trouble installing cdrtools 2.00.3 because I don't know exactly what I am doing. Does it matter where I unzip the .tar.gz to? How do I use gmake.linux?

Thanks,

Suse7.1 user

I have no idea if this is correct or not, but I'll ask since I'm also wondering how to work my CD-R in linux. Could you not just moung the CD-R drive, and copy files to it just as if you were copying files to any other directoy? I'm thinking you'll probably have to issue some sort of command to format the disc or such before you can work with it though.

But then there comes the other problem about burning direct copies of CDs and converting mp3s to wavs. Does Linux come with any sort of CD-Burning utility that can be used in X or anything like that?

afaik, just save it in your /home/user directory somewhere and then extract it (either by right clicking and picking "extract here" or using the terminal in that directory: tar -xvzf filename) once extracted, enter its directory and view the README file and the INSTALL file and go from there.


normally it is:

./configure
make
(as root)
make install
