I'm looking at [URL] and I see 8 DVD's each approx 4GB. Why is there one DVD for ubuntu and 8 DVDs for debian? What is on all those DVDs? Is there any way to copy those iso files to a thumb drive instead of a DVD and install from the thumb drive? I have a couple of 32GB micro SD in the mail soon.
I'm thinking on trying Debian, I searched through their website and I went to the download site and I see there are 5 dvds torrent files? Which one should I download? I mean is debian that heavy that i need 5 dvds to get everything installed? By the way is there a kde version? I want kde.
I am trying to get this script to work. The purpose is to download a list of modules from the slax.org the list consist of a list of module numbers. What I am trying to do is Download the file or the file name corresponding to the number in the list.the list is comma delimited. this is what I have done so far and I am a stand still.
#!/bin/sh # Wget script to retrieve modules from slax.org modules # # ----Begin of user defined values ----- # Path to wget
Whenever I put a few files into a blank CD or DVD, wether it's pictures, music, documents, whatever, and then I use it another day and try to put a few more files into it, Ubuntu won't let me. I used to be able to continue adding files to my CDs in XP, so I'm not sure if there's any way to do that with Ubuntu? It just shows the DVD as (for example) 1.4 GB used, 0 GB free.
I just built a new Linux box & cannot get Movies (dvds or files) to play properly.
Xine playback is jittery but audio stays in sync with video. Xine complains about "Too Many Dropped Frames" Mplayer playback is ok but audio & video are way out of sync. Mplayer says my system is "Too Slow"
I think it might be a RADEON driver issue because my Mandriva-2009.1 uses X.org version: 1.6.1 & maybe those drivers (radeon_drv.so) don't fully support the ATI Radeon HD 4200 GPU. I know there is a prorietory driver (fglrx) but before trying it I'd like to here what you think. Here is some relevant info about my computer:

Sorry this post is so long. I know it isn't easy to sift thru a long post because that is exactly what I've been doing this past week while try ing to get a solution.
I have a large collection of pictures (12GB and growing) - way too big to fit on one CD or DVD.I want to back them up to CDs or DVD's in standard (I think it's iso 9660) format that Windows can read.I know how to do this the hard way - by manually selecting a pile of pictures that will fit on one disc, burning it and then going on to the next pile.There must be a way to tell k3b or a similar program to do this for me - to automatically make a backup of the whole thing using as many discs as necessary.Can anyone tell me how to do this?
I don't want to use tar or another archive/compression scheme because I want the pictures accessible to someone with minimal technical expertise who doesn't even know how to spell "Linux".
I have not been able to write to DVDs since the install except for once when luck seemed to play more a part than anything else. Does anyone have a fix for this?Well, after letting it sit and sit and sit, it looks like it does write the data. But, it's writing about 1/2 of a DVD for just 2 500K files.
At the Debian download web page, there are many choices for an installation CD. There also is a 4 DVD set. I presume the CD is to get a base system installed. I presume the 4 DVD set is the whole ball of wax.
Yet presumptions are not always a good thing. So I would appreciate an explanation about the difference between the two options or just point my nose to the appropriate link. I browsed the Debian online docs, but I did not find an explanation. I am getting older too, so perhaps I saw the explanation and clicked right on by.
VLC used to work fine for me. I ran a DVD in Movie Player and somehow that seems to have broken VLC. Now neither of them work. Starting VLC in the terminal I get this error when trying to read a DVD: [URL]
Can I use all packages in Debian 5 Lenny DVDs (1-6) without any problem in my Ubuntu Server 10.04? For example using apt-cdrom and apt-update, apt-install xxxx ?. Wouldn't affect these actions for potential errors?
I am trying to make a backup copy of a DVD without success. k3b simply stays there silent doing nothing and I have to terminate the application. Is there a way to make DVD copies if one needs to?EDIT:I am using the home partition for caching as it is the biggest one on the disks; /tmp is too small.
I have Debian Jessie installed. When I insert a non-encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, a pop-up menu appears asking me what I want to do (e.g. "Open with vlc media player, etc.).
When I insert an encrypted DVD movie DVD into the drive, no pop-up menu appears.
I am able to play the encrypted movie DVD in vlc, and libdvdcss2 is installed. So my question is not about playing the DVD but rather about the failure to automatically detect it.
This behaviour happens in Gnome, Mate, and XFCE. (KDE has a Plasma Device Notifier Widget that is able to detect the encrypted DVD).
My other computer with Debian Wheezy is able to automatically recognize the encrypted DVD.
Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the encrypted DVD:
Code: Select allJun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208964] Result: hostbyte=DID_OK driverbyte=DRIVER_SENSE Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208972] sr 1:0:0:0: [sr0] Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208977] Sense Key : Illegal Request [current] Jun 21 14:52:04 debian-think-pad kernel: [ 2012.208986] Info fld=0x400
Here are the relevant lines from /var/log/syslog after the insertion of the non-encrypted DVD:

Whan I run the mount command after inserting the non-encrypted DVD the following line appears in the output:
Code: Select all/dev/sr0 on /media/daniel/Check Please type udf (ro,nosuid,nodev,relatime,uid=1000,gid=1000,umask=77,iocharset=utf8,uhelper=udisks2)
Granted, this issue is not a major problem as I can start vlc and play the DVD. However, it might be useful to some new users to Linux to have the pop-up menu appear. Additionally, it would be interesting to learn why it works in Debian Wheezy and not in Debian Jessie.
I have the eight Debian dvds listed in my sources.list, along with security, nonfree, and multimedia repositories. It does this for all eight dvds, re-scanning them for the update.These dvds have already been scanned (from the apt-cdrom add command). New updates are NOT going to suddenly appear on these already scanned dvds, so this is a completely unnecessary endeavour.Is there a way to stop this?It didn't happen with Lenny, and I'd like to stop it with Squeeze.
I use Squeeze. I just recently upgraded from Lenny. My sources.list is a combination of Debian DVDs and some http repos (for multimedia, non-free, and security updates). I rely largely on DVDs because I use dial-up.
When I tried to run apt-get dist-upgrade for the multimedia packages on my system, it told me to insert Debian DVD disc #1, and from that attempted to install the following programs: librtmp0 libdirac-decoder0 libggiwmh0 libggiwmh0-target-x libvdpau1 twolame. But, it then told me:
I have one desktop and two laptops. It is strange to find that none of the three systems play VCD, when I use Totem, Totem-xine, Gxine or VLC media player, even with the codecs updated. Worse, each of the three DVD players then act in a loop, seeking the LG DVD-RAM drive endlessly. But the drives otherwise work very well and I also write DVDs and CDs often.I have tested the VCDs in Windows machines with VLC media player, and the VCDs work wonderfully. This is kind of strange. So I thought may be I should report this.
I have some files located in /vol0/archives that has several files Eg:- arch_00001.arc , arch_00002.arc, arch_00003.arcI want to tar each of those files into separate tar ball by taking it garbing it file name sequence,Eg:- arch_00001.arc.tar.gz , arch_00002.arc.tar.gz, arch_00003.arc tar.gzhow do I define the tar command to go get those files and tar each file separately, As I mention above
how to make a list of all mp3 ogg or any other files in linux and save it as csv. Or, do somebody know a program or python script which allow you to do that by just pointing at the location with this files??
