Free and non-free burning programs for burning UBCD
Posted: Tue Jul 08, 2008 1:36 pm
Add the following link to 'Tutorials' and "Useful links".
Now it contains 19 free and non-free programs which can burn iso files to a cd + instructions
A tutorial for a free burning program like InfraRecorder
, which is very good, should be added to the tutorial section (comparable tutorial as the ones for the non-free burning applications).

For Linux too!
There are excellent CD-burning utilities for the Linux GUI; X-Windows :
k3b in KDE, http://freshmeat.net/projects/k3b
gnomebaker in GNOME,
brasero in GNOME, http://www.gnome.org/projects/brasero/
Even better is the standard cdrkit/cdrtools 'cdrecord' command in Linux .
Info on this command-line command is at the DLS Burning a Bootable CD page, http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/inde ... ootable_CD
And excellent documentation on both cdrecord and the mkisofs ISO-remastering commands is at http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/l ... dburn.html
I've had consistently excellent results once the UBCD ISO is mastered correctly, via the commend sequence
Code: Select all
cdrecord -v -eject speed=8 dev=x,x,x ubcdxxxx.iso
where x,x,x are the device numbers of my specific CD-RW device found through cdrecord -scanbus, and ubcdxxxx
is the specific UBCD ISO variant to be burnt into a bootable CD.
End-note here: 'cdrecord' sure seems to be the
straightforward and tried-and-true one for some of us Linux commandline buffs!

For the command line utilities in linux, you can always type:
to get the manual page for those utilities.
In Ubuntu you can also burn a iso image to a CD with CD/DVD workplace
(right click on a iso image).

Apparently for Debian GNU/Linux and for some Debian-based Linux distros, the commands
'genisoimage' and 'wodim' are the cdrkit forkoffs of above respective 'mkisofs' and 'cdrecord' commands.
From the cdrkit Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cdrkit
genisoimage stands for gen
erate ISO image
wodim stands for w
AFAICT, the switches after each of these cdrkit commands are identical
to those of the mkisofs and cdrecord they replace.
As one of the Debian GNU/Linux -derived distros that works acceptably from the Ultimate Boot CD, Damn Small Linux happens to use these two particular cdrkit commandline commands.
