creating iso discs and USBs

asked 2016-09-14 12:38:04 -0500

What program is recommended by Fedora for burning iso DVDs and for creating bootable USB sticks?

Has Fedora thought about supporting sailboat cruising by making programs like OpenCPN available? It seems like the sailboat cruising software mostly uses Ubuntu now (Navigatrix etc.). I hate Unity and have had Ubuntu and Kbuntu mess up my system so don't want to install them again. Fedora is the best behaved distro for me. And your graphics arts people do a great job of creating clean, attractive artwork for the distro (I have a BFA from Art Center College of Design so appreciate the graphics you do). I love running Fedora and only wish there was a sailboat cruising distro based on Fedora, or failing that maybe Fedora could include OpenCPN in your software repository? In so many areas Linux has become the standard and driven out proprietary software. Sadly, this has not occurred (yet!) with sailing electronics where Raymarine, Garmin, Furuno, Simrad, etc. all have different proprietary software that is often mix-and-match incompatible. I have no doubt that eventually programs like OpenCPN on Linux will end run the proprietary solutions, and strong wish that whatever Linux gets used is Fedora.

You have included several questions here which doesn't work well. You should open one entry per question.

Are you wanting to create the ISO file or just burn an existing one to a disk? For the latter case, if you're using Gnome, just right-click the file and there will be a menu entry to write it to a disk. If you want to create the iso, is it data or video? See for some suggestions or do dnf search dvd. You will need rpmfusion enabled in most cases.

As for your other question about software, "Fedora" doesn't pick the software included. Someone has to do the work to package it. But specifically for OpenCPN, there already is an official repository for it. If you trust them, then follow the instructions on their download page, but use if you're running F24.
