Cd Burner


GOOD DAY!

Does anyone knows how to configure or install and burn a data files in redhat 7.3.? Do I need a X windows to setup my cd writer?

Regards,

no, you don't need xwindows, just get a command line cd burner like cdrecord. you'll also have to have scsi emulation compiled into your kernel.

Actually, you may not need SCSI emulation either, but you will need cdrecord. Then, try this command:

cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI

If you can see your burner listed, then you won't need SCSI emulation. You'll use the command mkisofs (in Slackware, it's bundled with cdrecord) to create the ISO image, then use cdrecord to burn that image to the CD.

I use the commands like this:

mkisofs -r -J -pad -V <label> -o <image.iso> </path/to/dir>

cdrecord -v speed=16 -overburn driveropts=burnfree dev=ATAPI:0,0 -pad -data <image.iso>

Where:
<image.iso> = name of ISO image file that will be created/burned
</path/to/dir> = path to the directory whose contents will be included in the CD
<label> = volume label that will appear in windows-like OS's (optional)

As always, check the man pages and other documentation for more info.

Enjoy!

here's what i get with the command:

scsidev: 'ATAPI'
devname: 'ATAPI'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.
Warning: There may be fatal problems.
cdrecord: Input/output error. Cannot open SCSI driver.
cdrecord: For possible targets try 'cdrecord -scanbus'. Make sure you are root.


so doesn't that mean it's seeing the burner, but it doesn't have the drivers? i haven't been able to get it to work on this machine w/out the kernel SCSI emulation, at least. thanks

Well, it doesn't seem to find your CDRW, that's for sure. When I run the command on my machine, I get :
Code:
Cdrecord 2.0 (i686-pc-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1995-2002 Jörg Schilling
scsidev: 'ATAPI'
devname: 'ATAPI'
scsibus: -2 target: -2 lun: -2
Warning: Using ATA Packet interface.
Warning: The related libscg interface code is in pre alpha.
Warning: There may be fatal problems.
Using libscg version 'schily-0.7'
scsibus0:
        0,0,0     0) 'BTC     ' 'BCE2410IM       ' 'A.23' Removable CD-ROM
        0,1,0     1) 'DVD-16X ' 'OEM316B         ' '1.00' Removable CD-ROM
        0,2,0     2) *
        0,3,0     3) *
        0,4,0     4) *
        0,5,0     5) *
        0,6,0     6) *
        0,7,0     7) *
You might try taking the line <append="hd?=ide-scsi"> out of your lilo.conf and try rebooting and running the 'cdrecord -scanbus dev=ATAPI' command again, just to be sure that the emulation isn't 'overriding' or 'conflicting' with the ATAPI scan.

If that doesn't work, then you'll have to stick with SCSI emulation.

Enjoy!
