    Question Need LINUX GUI based Application for DVD Burning


    Hi,

    I am having a request from my client. using RedHat EL5. Need to copy 25 GB of data everyday into DVDs. Need an GUI Based application which prompts for next DVD after burning each 4.7gb. but the users will input the data at one time all the 25 gb into the application. IS there any way.

    Thanks in Advance

    Well, I think that you can better write a ShellScript for it. (Since I am a shell script addict)

    Something like this:
    burn <FILEDIR>
    And then it first makes tar/rar files of them with a size of 4 GB each.
    And then Prompts a CLI Burning Program for each file.

    Is that a idea?

    I might have/make time to write that shell script for yea.

    Ok its not a GUI then but I guess people can use it.. right?

    If you are a C++ Programmer
    SDL / ncurses or qt or gtk

    if you asnt try gambas, phoenix, hbaisc, kbasic

    To make a GUI quickly yourself.

    Compile Gambas from Scratch?
    That might work..?

    Or well may I ask why you use Red Hat 5? When 9 is already released?

    Anywho..

    You can try to learn C++ and make a GUI with ncurses and/or SDL..
    Or you can hire a coder to write one for you...

    Umm, or you can maybe make something with the Dirty Visual basic and make it run with WINE I guess but that is just way off..

    Umm, well sorry I am kinda out of idea's..

    If you can do Flash you might be able to use that..
    Or make a WebScript so he can run the Burn program from his Own webbrowser..

    Well if I get another idea Ill tell you..
