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.
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.
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'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 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:

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:
While doing some tidying up, in the process of moving some directories off my temporary mint kde desktop, I lost the contents of an important data directory on my data partition. Just to try to explain a bit of background, I have been using mint kde4 as a stopgap measure until I got squeeze working again ( i have been having graphics problems) and had a symlink on the desktop to a /data directory on my data partition. As I just got squeeze working again, I was moving stuff that had accumulated on the mint desktop to a directory named /2010 in the /data directory on the data partition, but accidently copied/pasted the /data symlink along with the 3 other directories I had highlighted. So effectively, I was accidentally copying the /data symlink to /data/2010. For reasons I don't understand, the whole of the contents of the /data directory disappeared, and it is now totally empty. I thought, that cannot happen can it? So I opened gparted and sure enough, that partition, which previously had about 70 gb of data in the /data directory was empty apart from /lost+found and an odd text file I had stored there. The /data directory is still there, but empty. I shut down Mint and booted into squeeze, thinking it must be a mistake, but gparted shows it has all gone. How on earth can this happen? I have some of the data backed up but a fair bit of the recent stuff isn't, so I need to recover it. I hoped the file system check that happened when I booted back into squeeze would maybe repair anything that got broke, but it showed as clean during boot.
I've created a new group and a new user called dftp... Now I wanna do one thing... If 'dftp' connects thru ftp he should be directed to a particular location... and he shouldn't be able to see other folder except for his own including the parent folder that contains that location... I changed dftp's home folder to the location I want. However while connecting thru ftp. user dftp has been given permissions to see other folders and check out the contents of the other folders.
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 a database of around 4000 files. I use rsync script to transfer from 2 separate updated hdd every month but I need a way to compare a .txt file or .xml file to the updated drive as I cannot use rsync delete because I can not mount all 3 drives at the same time?
