Are there apps on a Live USB to burn an ISO to DVD so it becomes bootable or what is the command for it?
Edit: Irrelevant to the question. These instructions are not for DVD.
sudo dd if=/path/to/distro_iso.iso of=/dev/sdX bs=1M status=progress
If you have network access on the live environment, you can install one of the many utilities available for the job. There is
gnome-multi-writer or if you’re okay using AUR, there is
The DVD-RW was erased before I started. When I run the dd command it says:
dd: error writing ‘/dev/sr0’: No space left on device
1+0 records in
0+0 records out
2048 bytes (2.0 kB, 2.0 KiB) copied, 0.0273347 s, 74.9 kB/s
Shoot I’m sorry, I didn’t notice that you’re burning onto a DVD
See the first comment by @s4ndm4n ; that should be relevant.
I have network access on the Live USB. If I got it right, the programs mentioned on the website s4ndm4n linked, need to be installed first, no matter whether GUI or terminal. Are there no tools already contained in the Live system because apt-get does not work? I do not know how to install programs.
sudo pacman -S name_of_package
The Pacman Rosetta will help to familiarize you with pacman’s usage:
The command of the website s4ndm4n linked, xorriso -as cdrecord -v -sao dev=/dev/sr0 isoimage.iso returned:
xorriso : FAILURE : Image size 2328944s exceeds free space on media 2298496s
Most probably (though not sure), the command would have worked if the ISO was not too big for the DVD!
Are you asking if there is a program to burn a DVD from an installed sysytem?
yay -S brasero
No. It is not about burning a DVD from an installed system. I’m trying to burn a (bootable) DVD from an ISO I have, but it seems the ISO is too big for the DVD-RW.

will work on the live iso too… and its easy to use gui application…
