Re: Installed by apt-get install

That does not show whether I installed from Synaptic, or from the command line using apt-get install.

Re: Installed by apt-get install

I installed from the command line using apt-get install. I can open Synaptic and see things installed using it, but not things I installed using the command line.

Re: Brasero Nor k3b

OK it wont fit because of the time regardless of how large or small the file is in MB. The time is 82 min 53 sec. I would need to burn onto an 800MB / 90min music CD. I am not going to do that to suit one guy. He will either have to play them off a stick or shuffle 2 CD's. That said, If I had an 800...

Re: Brasero Nor k3b

So Brasero is trying to convert the mp3's to .wav? I converted .wav's to mp3, so they would fit on one CD. Is Brasero capable of burning mp3's?

Re: Brasero Nor k3b

...and a note: if you're trying to write them as an Audio-Data cd, not as 'data files', then indeed they might exceed the 700mb limit. A 10mb mp3 can easily expand to 50-60mb when decoded to .wav, so... So Brasero is trying to convert the mp3's to .wav? I converted .wav's to mp3, so they would fit ...

Brasero Nor k3b Solved

I tried burning CD of 24 Mp3's with k3b and got notice file type not recognized. I tried burning with Brasero and got notice "the project is too large for the disk." That's 24 items, totalling 65.4 MB. That can't fit on a 700MB CD?

Do that with:

Re: Running Out of Root Diskspace

So far we've looked at everything except what is actually in the 30GB / partition which shows 91% full. The OP indicated 7GB in /boot with a note that there are .iso files stored there - which is puzzling. Having an .iso file in /boot does absolutely nothing except take up / space. How did they get...
