Default ubuntu-users Digest, Vol 45, Issue 172 : Brasero troubles with Hardy ISOs

Please see my post about Brasero possibly giving invalid integrity check errors when burning a Hardy ISO.

And I always do specify that the source is an ISO, I never "let Brasero choose".

I think these observed problems are related, don't you?


Sorry I can't give you the specific link; I'm just new at this and having trouble learning how to reply to a thread, or link to one of my own posts.

Anyway, what I reported is consistent with several responses like "works for me": Yes, the burnt CD works, but Brasero _says_ it's no good.


IHTH

* *I think the magic of Ubuntu is that it loads as easy as Windows XT

and Vista and provides a computer which is superior to both Windows

versions. You can even download the software from the web site.



* *The web site is, in my opinion confusing. A person who is now using

Windows goes to the Ubuntu site and the first thing he has to do is

decide if he wants a Desktop or Server version, whatever those are!

Later he is given the choice to get Kubntu whatever THAT IS!



* *My suggestion is to make the first page nothing but a Desktop

version that will replace the Windows with time. It is one d/l of a

LiveCD that will run if your computer has Windows XP on it. Then the

next pages introduce the special versions for a special purpose. There

have been several complainers on this list that d/l the server and never

got a Desktop :-)



* *Also I think the penalty for using a Desktop as a server is VERY

small and has advantages. The explanation will be simple and anyone can

do it.

Note that I didn't make any modifications as suggested in that bug

report. However I did not let Brasero select the type for me, and

instead I selected 'iso' at the 'Image Type'. Maybe you and the folks in

the bug report left the 'Image Type' at "Let brasero choose (safest)"

rather than selecting ISO? If so, then maybe that's the problem? Don't

know as I don't burn CD's that often & most of the time I use k3b or

just right click on the iso from Nautilus and tell it to burn directly.

It's difficult to figure out exactly what you are trying to do but this

might help:



If the changes you want to make are to be accepted by menu.lst, you

should prepare menu.lst before starting to make these changes * * Use a

terminal and type in; * *chmod go+rw /boot/grub/menu.ls, * Thereafter,

any changes you make in menu.lst will be accepted on a save command.



Notice that most of the lines in menu.lst start with # and the effective

systems lines do not start with #.



You can prevent any line from appearing on the bootup menu or performing

its function by preceding it with a *#.



If you want things to appear in a certain order on the bootup menu, you

can use an editor to move items around in /boot/grub/menu.lst



For example, I wanted Windows XP to be at the top of the bootup menu so

I moved its entire entry of XP to be the first entry. (Actually, I

copied it in a space before the first UBUNTU entry, then I went to the

original location of XP and preceded each *line

with a # instead of deleting the entire original XP.

[

After you made your changes, perform a save. * *Normally, *the save

would not be accepted but the *' chmod go+rw /boot/grub/menu.ls ' *you

did earlier will allow you to do the save, now and in the future.

This is rather bad advice to recommend making any system files world

writeable. Permissions on system files do not generally need to be

modified, instead one should use sudo before the editing command to

gain root privileges, e.g.:



sudo nano /boot/grub/menu.lst



or preferably:



sudoedit /boot/grub/menu.lst



If a gui editor is desired then use gksudo, eg.:



gksudo gedit /boot/grub/menu.lst

This setting was already there...



I thank you for your help. I'm about to give up on this as this isn't

really important for me... The laptop isn't my main machine and I can

easily turn it off when I'm not using it...
