Topic: Burn DVD from within a Live CD?

I made the mistaking of using GParted to repartition my hard drive before making sure I have an OS reinstall disk ready. I have the iso somewhere in the hard drive.

How can I burn a DVD from this ISO, from the GParted Live CD?

This is what I've tried so far:

sudo apt-get install dvd+rw-tools

Package dvd+rw-tools is not availble, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only availble from another source

Fine. Then I try to add another repository:

sudo apt-add repository ppa:ferramroberto/extra

sudo: add-apt-repository: command not found

Then, I try to install python-software-properties:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties

And get

Unable to locate package python-software-properties

How can I make this work?


Re: Burn DVD from within a Live CD?

To install packages into a running instance of GParted Live, use the following steps:

1)  Enable the network interface.
     You can do this by double-clicking the Network Config icon on the desktop
     and selecting the appropriate setting (usually DHCP)

2)  Open a terminal window, edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list as root, and add
     an entry for a Debian mirror nearest your location.
     Debian Mirror List

     The entry should be in the form:

deb http://free.nchc.org.tw/debian sid main non-free

     Where free.nchc.org.tw is replaced by the mirror site closes to you.

3)  Update apt.

sudo apt-get update

4)  Install packages as usual.

sudo apt-get install package-name

Hope that helps.  :-)
