Please Assist: BashBurn


How do I Burn an ISO image with BashBurn Software ? Please assist.
I use Damn Small Linux and can't find any documents relatring to its use. I copied the ISO to /tmp/burn and tried to burn, it didn't work. Then I also made a BashBurn.iso and tried to burn this to CD. This also failed.

Please assist.

Thanks.

Vijay

what do you mean by "it didn't work"? you mean the program failed or recieved errors?

are you able to burn the iso with cdrecord?

I tried
$cdrecord 0,1,0 dsl-0.9.3.iso

Got two error messages saying no file or directory as cdrecord.mmap

Can't open /dev/pg5 and Can't open SCSI driver.

are you using scsi emulation (or have scsi drives), or burning with ide drives (no scsi emulation) and is 0,1,0 the correct drive (according to cdrecord -scanbus)?

also, what kernel are you using?

cdrecord dev=0,1,0 xxx.iso

In regards to SCSI I don't know.

kernel 2.4.26

0,1,0 is the correct drive according to scanbus

Here is what I used:
$sudo cdrecord dev=0,1,0 -data Speed=8 dsl-0.0.3.iso

It burned well. There were no error messages. The CD even booted properly, but X will not load.
On the Damn Small Linux site it says 9.2 is their latest software version. However at ibiblio.org I got just 9.3 md5sum was ok.
Wonder what can be wrong ?

Just checked DSL version 9.3 has been just released, so it is the latest version.

Here are the error messages I get when trying to boot the burned CD:
cloop: Read error at pos 212922 4173 bytes lost.

cloop: error -5 uncompressing block 40

xinit: so such file, directory or process

Does this indicate a bad CD, problem with the burn process or problem with the ISO ?

Please assist.

Thanks.

This was solved. I burned another CD using the same command/iso, it burned/booted very well.
So, this proves that the previous CD Media that I used was defective.

Thanks everyone for all the info./assistance in this post.
