Greetings Everybody ,

I wanted to ask how can someone write a data dvd under Fedora Core 1 .
Am familiar with cdrecord and mkisofs as far as writting cds is concerned .
I know that there is a command called dvdrecord which seems to work like
cdrecord . But am rather uncertain on how to create a 4,5 GB ISO image in order to
feed it to dvdrecord to do the writing . Does anyone have any hints/examples ?

Thank you in advance for your time

Kind Regards,

You can make the iso the same way you do for CD's, but instead of
dvdrecord (broken for iso's over "100 minutes") use the command:

# growisofs -Z /dev/scd0=your_very_own.iso

growisofs is actually a wrapper to mkisofs, so you can skip the
middleman of creating an iso first, and just feed (most of) mkisofs
options to growisofs to write directly to disk. growisofs has a man page
now, so you can get details there.

Got them . Thanks very much .
