Burning ISO images


What software do you use, and can you describe how to set it up for ISO image burning? Anyone use eroaster? I couldn't get it to work.

eroaster works fine for me, but just followbsdjunkies advice, much easier:

cdrecord -v -speed=32 -dev=0,0,0 -somethingelse file.iso

mkisofs will CREATE an iso, which you presumably already have...

I'm trying to burn a copy of Redhat 8.0. I have downloaded the .iso files and want to burn them to CD. So I would use this command for that? It will create a bootable disk?

I've been using the man pages but they don't tell you what you want to know! I think that my cdburner is at /dev/scd0

Yeah it worked. The only thing that I had to do was make a small change. I ran:

cdrecord -scanbus

It told me that my cdburner was located at 0,3,0. So I used that for dev=0,3,0. Hmm, wonder about recording mp3s.

Well if you are gonna command line it, you'll want to convert them to wavs first. There are plenty of utilities for it, most basic that comes to mind is:
mpg123 -w filename.wav filename.mp3

I am a wuss lately, and have been using ARSON to both convert my ogg's or mp3's and burn them. Somebody kick my ass please?

Cool

You should only use Arson against Microsoft products.

If it works for you, use it. Using a frontend app does not automatically demote one to the rank of "wuss".
