    I am having trouble installing VMware from an RPM, and my friend told me to paste those two in here and see what you say, does anyone know how to fix this?

    p.s. this is a little off-topic but does anyone know how to burn ISOs to a cd?

    Sorry that I cannot help on the main part of your request; however, burning an iso image is not hard. In linux use either K3B or xcdroast and burn the file as a cd image. In windows you nero or another burner that has the same option, to burn as an image...If you want more of a walkthrough approach visit the tutorials section on this site and there is an excellent walkthrough for burning iso images from all sorts of programs...

    good luck

    haha, that was more of a one sided question for linux, yeah I know how to do it in windows but linux seems more confusing. I have nero for linux but it too is an rpm and won't work -__-"

    avoid directly installing rpm's get the other installer or convert it first using rpm2tgz


    also

    you can burn using cdrecord, xcdroast, nero, k3b

    but with cdrecord you make an iso first then burn it like


    2.4 kernel:

    cdrecord --scanbus to find your device, probably "0,0,0"
    cdrecord -dev=0,0,0 -speed=8 -eject burnme.iso


    2.6 kernel:

    cdrecord -dev=/dev/cdrw -speed=8 -eject burnme.iso


    hope this helps

    Use k3b for image burning...its a LOT easier

    To burn an ISO image to CD using k3b:

    1) open k3b
    2) Click Tools in upper menu bar
    3) In the dropdown menu select Burn CD Image.
    4) In the Burn Image dialog, browse to where your image is by clicking the folder button next to "Image to Burn" box. Select your desired ISO image and click OK to close the Choose ISO Image dialog.
    5) Select your burning device. If only one cd writer device available it will be greyed out. Ensure there is a blank CD/CDRW in the drive
    6) When ready click Start button in upper right corner. Burning will then commence.

    Hope that helps
