This is an old revision of the document!
(Since nearly all SparkyLinux images are too large to fit onto a single CD we are only including directions for DVDs)
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
The manual page (
man growisofs) is the authoritative source for more information on options and usage.
