    Can you post the exact error messages you're getting?

    Also, as soon as you get those error messages, on the command line, type:

    dmesg | tail

    And copy paste the output of the command here.

2.Extract the file
3.Open to the terminal
4.Use the cd command to change to the directory where the package is extracted
5.Use the following:

$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

Without Using The Extraction Method
Open to the terminal
Run the following:
$ tar xvzf package.tar.gz (or tar xvjf package.tar.bz2)
$ cd package
$ ./configure
$ make
$ make install

!!!!THIS IS AWESOME!!! …... ISN'T IT?

What are the issues about Linux Operating System


There are MANY Linux operating systems. The main ones known are Ubuntu, Fedora, PC Linux OS, OpenSUSE, Cent OS, Linux Mint and Debian.

Debian is the mother or what Ubuntu and Linux Mint is built from. Debian is considered to be stable. Ubuntu is also supposed to be stable as is Linux Mint. The advantage of these two are ease of use. Debian, Linux Mint and Ubuntu are using .deb packages for applications to be installed.

OpenSUSE uses .rpm packages. It is also considered as stable, but not as widely used as Debian (and the other two) CentOS and Fedora.

CentOS is mainly used for Server purposes. However, in the installation, there are many types of installation options, including Desktop. CentOS is based on the Enterprise version of Red Hat. This is what mainly more and more websites are running off of as it is extremely STABLE and FAST!! So Cent OS is the free EXACT version of Red Hat. Fedora, is the test bed for Red Hat , carrying the LATEST technology being made available to anyone for free.


ALL of these operating systems, except Red Hat, are for FREE. All applications are for FREE. Just to let you know, Google also is using a Linux version for their phones now as well called Android, which you can also acquire for FREE.

The only disadvantage that used to exists until recent is that you could not play all the latest and greatest games on Linux. Now with Steam, you can play anything.

There is a myth that you could not install Windows applications on Linux. You can use Wine on Linux to install Microsoft Windows Applications. If you are having a problem, you are probably missing some files for wine to make it work properly.

Linux is also being used in cars. Check out Toyota and Mercedes Benz that is using Ubuntu. Linux is big and amazing.

Hope that answers your questions.

My SuperMilti Dvd Burner with Lightscribe tech is not being recognized by the software as an available driver. The lightscribe template labeler shows "no lightscribe drive". If it's installed in my pc,...


I assume it's a USB device.

If it does not appear in 'My Computer' as a 'drive letter' device, the most likley problem is DRIVERS = go to manufacturers web site & see if you can find a driver specirfic to your (not stated) operating system (if it's a 64bit OS you are on your own ...).

My dv9000 wont burn any cds. i am not sure why. i have tryed downloading some different software but it still wont do it. i know it can i have done it before. i also have lightscribe and i have used that...


1. Lightscribe needs its own drivers and a labeler like Surething CD Labeler

http://www.lightscribe.com/downloadSection/windows/index.aspx

2. If your HP came with sonic and you installed Nero or something else there is a good chance neither programs will work.

I had the same issues with my lightscribes (2) I thoughtlessly installed Nero without removing the Sonic Digital Media + in my HP the burner no longer worked, I reinstalled both programs after removal. I had to run the Nero Clean Tool first

http://www.nero.com/eng/support-nero7-tools-utilities.html

before the burner would work again.... only with the Sonic though Nero never did anything but mess up my burner, the lightscribe came back after installing the correct drivers, if your lightscribe is very light almost unseeable, then there is a contrast enhancer for the lightscribe
