If you tried using the prior udf dvd then I would think it wouldn't
work. Did you try formating that dvd before you tried burning to it?
I always use a cd/dvd R/W to check the iso out before I burn to a cd/dvd R,
just in case.
I've tried burning several images that purport to be bootable, but I'm
guessing there are some parameters I have to set as well. When I burn CDs,
they just work - but the DVDs don't (readable, but not bootable) - so I'm
not sure what's going on.
When you select the iso file, does k3b show it is reading it? Does it
show an Md5 checksum?
yup - the checksum verifies and the disk verifies after being written
I just tried, as a user & as root, on an amd64 box and a K7 box. K3b
v1.0.3-2 on the amd64 box and k3b v0.12.17-9 on the k7 box and they
both created a bootable DVD. I just selected "Burn DVD ISO Image"
after if formated the DVD R/Wg. Both boxes are running testin and kernel
hmm.. no special settings - this is beginning to sound like my drive
