Please help me with DVD image

I have a little trouble making a video DVD image using dd. The man and "info coreutils dd" do not offer any help. All I get is: jenda@niniel:~$ dd if=/dev/dvd of=dvd.iso dd: reading `/dev/dvd': Input/output error 1216+0 records in 1216+0 records out 622592 bytes transferred in 6.426452 seconds (9688...

sorry to be so OT, but:

Yup! Sax as in SAXOPHONE! I spent just about all my money on a new, Czech-made tenor sax.

Ooh... pretty bad.
Getting ADSL with Nextra/Telenor soon. Just handed in the contract today. I hope they aren't such CeNsOrEd as your providers.

anyway, I have to go now - my new sax is waiting.

Definitely a few more years before Google reaches the Czechlands with that...

I don't support OEM installations. BTW, a few years ago (4) I bought this computer from a then-starting local company called Mironet. They sold me a very reasonable PC for a very reasonable price, with a "full OEM software package". This, surprisingly comprised of a blank PC and a CD, saying (transl...

OK... I finally got over to doing it. Loading two kernel modules (agpgart and i810), as suggested at Microsuck, seems to have helped a little. The thing is that games like Chromium are very choppy and basically unplayable. This could be caused by the computer - an 800 MHz Pentium something, 128 MB R...

The Linux Agora

Hello folks here at VM's website. A friend and I are starting a new Linux forum, The Linux Agora . At this point we only have three registered users, and I'd appreciate if you dropped by from time to time to enrich the discussion. Another reason would be that we simply do not have the expertise to a...

That's actually very useful for you. Us - we can't visit the site, true, but you! Your computer automatically ousts you on nice sunny days, as saying "get your ass out their and enjoy the weather while it lasts" and when it doesn't last no more, you can come back home and burn your eyes out in front...

Thanks people for the help. I didn't yet have a chance to work on it, and I got a few tips on Microsuck.com - those I couldn't yet check out either. I might get to it this weekend.

Did you notice how they send you to the Linux documentation for the really important stuff? NOTE: Windows XP and Linux can coexist on the same computer. For additional information, refer to your Linux documentation. Not to mention that step 1 of the instructions is on using your "Linux Setup floppy ...
