Essential disc info

Postby Marrea » Sun Jun 26, 2005 5:41 pm


Do you think you could possibly update the section in the mag's Essential disc info which deals with Creating Install CDs with cdrecord?

I was slightly thrown when I entered the command

cdrecord -scanbus

in SuSE 9.2, only to receive an error message.

However, after a bit of Net searching I discovered that

cdrecord -scanbus

is for the 2.4 kernel, but for the 2.6 kernel you use

cdrecord dev=ATAPI -scanbus

so it would be good if you could mention this on the Essential disc info page.
