Burn a DVD


(Since nearly all SparkyLinux images are too large to fit onto a single CD we are only including directions for DVDs)

From a Linux Host


CLI method

growisofs is a good tool for burning DVDs. Availability and installation will vary among Linux distros. Please consult your distro's documentation for installation. On Debian based systems the command is

sudo apt-get install growisofs

Basic usage is as follows (command is being run from the directory where the SparkyLinux .iso was downloaded):

growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvd=sparkylinux-3.6-x86_64-e19.iso

Subsituting, of course, the name of the version of SparkyLinux you actually downloaded for sparkylinux-3.6-x86_64-e19.iso

The manual page (man growisofs) is the authoritative source for more information on options and usage.
