APTonCD produces too big iso images splitting archive

Bug #337403 reported by Peter on 2009-03-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone

Bug Description

I have downloaded the entire Ubuntu repo with apt-mirror and tried to burn it with APTonCD but I failed. It splitted my repo and produced 5 DVD iso images that are to big for my recorder (NEC DVD_RW ND-3550A). The size of the first image is 4,4 Gb (4730284032 bytes). Overburning spoiled my DVD disk. APTonCD is 0.1.98-0ubuntu4

I can't get what you wanted AptonCD to do?

You want AptOnCD to produce smaller images?

APTonCD uses DVD = 4500 * 1024 * 1024 for DVD sizes.
So, if you want to make smaller files, you can change the DVD constant value of /usr/lib/python2.6/dist-packages/APTonCD/core/constants.py to your needs. ( make sure you do it correctly)

We are looking forward to make it small or not in the next version.

Thank you for your bug report.
