    The dvd+rw-tools-5.21.4.10.8-i486-1.tgz package is in AP, install it and you will be able to burn DVDs.

    Package info:
    dvd+rw-tools: dvd+rw-tools
    dvd+rw-tools:
    dvd+rw-tools: A collection of tools to master DVD+RW/+R/-R/-RW media. For further

    You might need mkisofs also I think.

    AP is a Slackware package group. The packages are divided into different groups after what function they have in the system.

    A - Base Linux system
    AP - Various Applications that do not need X
    D - Program Development (C, C++, Lisp, Perl, etc.)
    E - GNU Emacs
    F - FAQ lists, HOWTO documentation
    GNOME - GTK+ and GNOME programs for X
    K - Linux kernel source
    KDE - Qt and the K Desktop Environment for X
    KDEI - Language support for the K Desktop Environment.
    L - System libraries.
    N - Networking (TCP/IP, UUCP, Mail, News)
    T - TeX typesetting software
    TCL - Tcl/Tk script languages
    X - XFree86 X Window System
    XAP - X Applications
    Y - Games (that do not require X)
    You migt recognize these from the Slackware installation (unless you chose "Full install" in which case all I've told you to do is unneccesary becaue you already have the package installed.

    You can find the package on the installation CD (in the slackware/ap/ -directory) or you can download it from the internet. Go to http://www.slackware.com/getslack/ and coose a mirror close to your location and then browse to the directory slackware-10.2/slackware/ap/ and there you will find the dvd+rw-tools-5.21.4.10.8-i486-1.tgz -package.

    Download the package and install it by opening a terminal window and run
    Code:
    # installpkg dvd+rw-tools-5.21.4.10.8-i486-1.tgz
    (you have to be logged in as root to do this, to log in as root you can run:
    Code:
    # su -

    Now you have the package that makes it possible to burn DVD's installed, You probably want to have a GUI program that can use this, go to http://www.slackware.com/getslack/ again and choose the mirror.
    This time browse to the directory slackware-10.2/extra/k3b/ and download the k3b-0.12.4a-i486-1.tgz package. Install it in the same way with the following command:
    Code:
    # installpkg k3b-0.12.4a-i486-1.tgz
    When you have done this you can start the burning program by running
    Code:
    # k3b
    from command line.

    If you want to burn movies to a DVD I recommend googling for a tool that converts your movies to MPEG files, you might also want to have a look at this page: http://mjpeg.sourceforge.net/.

    You can then create a DVD of your mpegs by using a tool like Varsha (http://varsha.sourceforge.net/).
