Best CD/DVD burner/ripper
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 17, 2007
Listen, K3b is the best CD/DVD burner/ripper in the Ubuntu repositories. I've used a bunch. You can add plugins extremely easily, and it has all kinds of great features, such as automatic and accurate CDDB lookup. In fact, when it comes to working with media such as CDs, video files, music, etc., the best applications tend to be KDE ones. I'm not trying to be a KDE fanboy here, just telling you the honest truth as I see it.
I hate it when people have problems with an application they don't know there is an alternative for. It's like telling a Windows user that Photoshop is the best and only graphics editor with allllll these wonderful features. Well, have you ever thought that maybe Paint Shop Pro would fit their needs better? I hear people complaining about things like Gaim, aMSN, etc. because it doesn't work for them. Well how come no one talks about Kopete? It's the greatest IMHO, it offers webcam support (which many people want), it supports many chat protocols...it come

Best CD Burning Program?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2008
This is to both inform everyone about a good program I found to burn CDs with, And also To ASK everyone what software they use and recommend to use for copying CDs!
The one I am impressed with is called K3B and can be downloaded here:
But you know I am new to linux and whatever I did to install it did Not work!?(./configure ./install/ make make install etc etc..)??!!(The readme file said to do all of that)??!!
So I said what the hekk and tried
apt-get install k3b
(as root) and bingo the thing came up as GUI inside my terminal box and finished installing in my gnome session!?
I like k3b because it is simple and get-to-the point kind of program. After failing to copy on my XP machine I gave Ubuntu 8.04 a try and it too did not copy but (k3b) said the probable cause was " The Burner does not like your kind of CDs" (or something like that) heh..
I thought that was cool cuz I bought these blank CDs overseas and I

Unable to boot Linux Live CD
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 16, 2011
I have run into a problem. Yesterday I installed Ubuntu to begin exploring, I think it was Ubuntu 10.4, it was downloaded it a few weeks back, but I never got around to doing anything with it.) In any event I ran into a problem almost immediately. I was unable to connect to my wireless network. After some research and experimentation with ndiswrapper I decided to start over. So I put back in the Live CD to reinstall. However while booting to the CD it is now hanging at the load screen. It sits there and looks like it is loading for 5-10 minutes then turns black. I burned a new CD thinking that the CD I installed from previously may have become corrupted, but still no luck. A little more research led me to download a gparted .iso and I using this tool I deleted the partitions that once held my Ubuntu installation. (I left all other partitions intact.) Now I am still unable to boot to the CD and am getting the grub rescue screen so now I am also not able to boot to Windows. Any ideas? I
Linux Live CD tech demo...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 24, 2009
I currently use Sabayon 4 MCE as my tech demo Live CD for people who are interested in trying linux on their computer (without installing anything). the main reason is the variety of software on it including compiz, multimedia software, openoffice, and other programs that people are really interested in.
It works great, and with little or no setup.
My question is: are there any other good 'Live CD' distros out that work great as tech demos (graphics and software)? Sabayon is the only one I've tried for this purpose, and I really like it... the way I figure, there must be others out there
Black Screen on Damn Small Linux Live CD loadup?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2012
Hey guys. Ages ago i put a post on these forums about a problem i had when i booted. (It dropped me to a command line for no reason). This time the problem is even less self explanatory than the last. Now for some reason when i boot it says loading (whatever those 2 files are ) And then goes to a black screen.. My computer isn't old. Its pretty new. (HP G62, Quad Core i3, 2gb RAM, main os is vista) Can someone come up with a solution?
Mounting hard drive from Linux Live CD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 1, 2013
Did something stupid, and messed up my /etc/fstab by putting barrier=0 as an option to to my root directory. So, I booted from a Linux Live CD. My Linux distributor is Centos.
Did fdisk -l, and see /dev/sda being 1500 GB and assume it is my HD. It shows /dev/sda1 (which evidently does not end on cylinder boundary), and /dev/sda2. It also shows /dev/dm-0 and /dev/dm-1, and says both do not contain a valid partition type.
I mount sda1, and think it is the /boot of my hard drive, and cannot get to /etc/fstab and fix it.
I then try to mount sda2, but get "mount: /dev/sda2 already mounted or /mnt/sda busy". So, I try to umount /dev/sda2, but am told it is not mounted.
I then do mount, and see /dev/mapper/live-rw (the CD), /proc, /sys, /dev/pts, /dev/shm, and /proc/sys/fs/binfmt_misc. No sda2.
Can anyone help?
Cannot Boot Any Linux Live CD but Slackware
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 31, 2013
I just recently installed Slackware 14 out of curiosity. I'm not that new to linux, as I have used Backtrack, Ubuntu, Fedora, and Linux Mint in the past. After I installed Slackware, I decided that I preferred Backtrack in most ways, so I decided to load that instead. The problem was, after I installed Slackware, my laptop refused to boot Backtrack Live CD. I then tried Ubuntu and Linux Mint. The only disks that my PC would boot from were the Slackware 14 and Windows 7 Install disks.
Has anyone else had this problem, or have a solution to it?
