I have installed growisofs. I want to burn a DVD R of
#growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/cd0=/path/7.2-RELEASE-p1-i386-disc1.iso .
Got this from FreeBSD handbook. Get no such file or directory error. Whats
wrong with the syntax?
Caveats about anything I say: 1) I'm using 7.2, and b) I'm using +R media.
Nothing is wrong with the syntax, although your command above says the ISO
file is in a directory called /path. Does the directory exist? Is the ISO
in that directory? Permissions OK on everything? Does /dev/cd0 point to
your burner? And as Adam said, make sure you have atapicam loaded.
I'm also assuming that dot at the end of your line is a period at the end
of your sentence, and not part of the command you issued.
Is this the correct way to copy an .iso onto a DVD-R for installs?
It burns the ISO to the disk as a premastered disk, which is what you want
in this situation. If you wanted to just copy the ISO as a file, you'd
replace the = sign with a space.
Or can I just use burncd like somebody on the BSD forum said they did?
I have no idea what somebody on the BSD forum said :^)
HTH. Hang loose.
