LHS Show Notes #002

Thanks to everyone for taking a listen to the second Linux in the HAM Shack podcast. Here are some links and a few notes about the show for future reference.


  • Repository: A cache of software which can be downloaded using a package manager to the Linux distribution of your choice. Debian, Ubuntu and LinuxMINT use the apt system.
  • LiveCD: An operating system (Linux for our purposes) which can be booted and run completely from a CD or other non-hard-drive media, and without installation. Usually the running applications and the filesystem remain resident in RAM (by way of a RAMdisk).
  • ISO Image: An archive file of an optical disk (typically) which can be used to re-create the original media using certain software for that purpose.

CD/DVD Burning Software (Abbreviated)

  • Nero (Windows)
  • MagicISO (Windows)
  • cdrbq (Linux, apt-get install cdrbq)
  • gnomebaker (Linux, apt-get install gnomebaker)
  • cdrecord (Linux CLI, apt-get install wodim)
