    Package for burning


    Hi folks,

    Slackware-11.0

    I have "slamd64-11.0-dvd.iso" imgage download on this box. I can't find K3B here. Which package shall I use to burn the ISO image. TIA.

    Remark: I'm going to wipe out Slackware-11.0 and install slamd64-11.0 on this box.

    Hi kern,

    Tks for your advice.

    cdrecord?


    cdrecord -dev=/dev/cdrom (or whatever) slack.iso
    It is a DVD iso image. growisofs will be more suitable. But I haven't figured out what options shall be up to format the DVD before burning and check DVD data quality after burning. Any suggestion? TIA

    Hi rong and folks,

    Tks for your advice.

    The only reason not installing k3b/bashburn, the front-end package, is slackware-11.0 will be erased immediately after burning to be replaced with slamd64-11.0.

    I'll install an additional CD-Writer on the box and run LIveCD to get the DVD iso image burned rather than waisting more time. Tks.


    Edit:

    The strange thing is;
    # cdrecord -scanbus

    can't find the device, the DVD writer.

    Which kernel are you using with Slackware?

    The 2.6 line no longer works with cdrecord's --scanbus option, you just need to specify the device (ie: /dev/hdc). I've never used a DVD burner under Slackware, but if it's anything CD burning there's a few things you need to be aware of... Since Slackware comes with 2.4 by default you would have to specify ide-scsi=/dev/hdc in LILO/GRUB as a kernel option (if you CD burner is /dev/hdc).

    Isn't the program for burning dvd's dvdrecord? IDK I use front ends when doing end-userish tasks.

    Hi bidi,

    Tks for your advice.

    Which kernel are you using with Slackware?
    2.4

    Since Slackware comes with 2.4 by default you would have to specify ide-scsi=/dev/hdc in LILO/GRUB as a kernel option (if you CD burner is /dev/hdc).
    Connection:-
    HD - SATA
    DVD Writer - Master IDE, cable select (CS)

    # cat /etc/lilo.conf
    Code:
    # LILO configuration file
    # generated by 'liloconfig'
    #
    # Start LILO global section
    boot = /dev/sda
    message = /boot/boot_message.txt
    prompt
    timeout = 1200
    # Override dangerous defaults that rewrite the partition table:
    change-rules
      reset
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
    vga = 773
    # Normal VGA console
    # vga = normal
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x64k
    # vga=791
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x32k
    # vga=790
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 1024x768x256
    # vga=773
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x64k
    # vga=788
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x32k
    # vga=787
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 800x600x256
    # vga=771
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x64k
    # vga=785
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x32k
    # vga=784
    # VESA framebuffer console @ 640x480x256
    # vga=769
    # End LILO global section
    # Linux bootable partition config begins
    image = /boot/vmlinuz
      root = /dev/sda2
      label = Linux
      read-only
    # Linux bootable partition config ends
    What shall I add on lilo.conf and where? TIA

    After that last block of stuff just add:
    Code:
    append="ide-scsi=/dev/hdc"
    Like I said before, I'm not sure if this would work with DVD burners the same way it works with CD burners. This is the way for CD burners!

    Hi bidi,

    After that last block of stuff just add:
    Code:
    append="ide-scsi=/dev/hdc"
    Tried
    Code:
    append="ide-scsi=/dev/hdc"
    and

    Code:
    append="ide-scsi=/dev/hda"
    (remark: only one ide device. HD on SATA)

    # cdrecord -scanbus
    still failed to display DVD-writer

    It is quite strange to me. I'll wipe out Slackware-11.0 replacing it with slamd64-11.0. I'll install K3B on the new OS. Tks.
