Hello everyone, i’m 247, and i’ve been using fedora from the 22 version (long time has passed eh?)
the other day i was looking to burn a particular kind of disc (easily burnable with windows) but i found only command lines almost hard to follow instructions and i was almost about to surrender, when i found a very easy solution with an app called cdemu (available in a copr)
it was actually so easy i wanted to write an article about it, firstly because it may be a nice subject for the fedora magazine, and second because it may be helpful to newcomers and other people that want an easy solution for burning disc images, after all, fedora should also be easy, for everyone to use
so i decided to present myself here, in the hope that someone might guide me on doing the article (or say me it’s a bad idea, who knows)
Hello @luca247 ,
+1 on the article to introduce this from the COPR repo, possibly look around at other offerings too, so you can write about more than just one. But if you would prefer to write about cdemu alone, that is fine too. I am thinking of Fre:ac as one example of an alternative.
OK. I’ve created card #328 to track the progress of your article. You should now be able to sign onto Fedora Magazine and write your article. Move the card to the “Review” column when you think you have your article ready for publication and the editors will assign someone to review and edit the article at the next weekly meeting on Thursday.
The article should be posted on the Fedora Magazine WP site, which you should have signed onto as one of your first steps of getting access. Create a post there with your title and copy your content into it.
Maybe OT for magazine, but about cdemu: Is there any reason this software is only available as copr and not in the main repository? (Other than no package maintainer caring about it.) If it’s useful software, maybe it’s worth adding?
After a short glance, it looks like it needs a kernel module and therefore can’t become part of the Fedora repository. I think it could be added to RPMFusion, but I’m not familiar with that platform as a package maintainer.
