I installed Fedora 9 few days ago and failed to burn my irc log and so on with Brasero.

I installed Fedora 9 by network installation. I had Fedora 8. (Fedora is one of the biggest linux distribution.) Soon after that, I tried to backup my log of irc chat and so on via Brasero. And I failed. It doesn’t complete to burn DVD-R correctly when I tried to burn it from the project directly. I found the bugzilla entry of Ubuntu: Brasero requieres 4GiB on /tmp to write an iso image
You can install it without a DVD media with the way below. (I forgot to record them. So I write it by my memory.)

  • put Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso on another server’s root of the nfs exported directory. (Now I name)
  • su –
  • mount -o loop Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso /opt
  • cd /opt/isolinux
  • Copy vmlinuz and initrg.img to /boot
  • vim /boot/menu.lst
    (Add these lines.)

    title Fedora 9 Installer
    root (hd0,0)
    kernel /vmlinuz ro root=/dev/sda1 selinux=0 reiserfs
    initrd /initrd.img

  • shutdown -r now
  • Go to the selection screen and select “Fedora 9 Installer”.

I’ve used only Fedora and Debian. So I know only those two. I love Linux for its CLI, especially bash. I found that I don’t know bash well but it let me use the commandline very conveniently.
