I have an old computer that can't handle a boot stick install, so i have to create an actual, old fashioned boot CD.
However, the image size for Ubuntu 12.04 is 732MB, which is too large for a CD, which can hold only 700MB.
The maintainers of Ubuntu 12.04 say the image size will never go over 700MB, and indeed, the download size seemed to be 689MB.
Brasero says it won't burn the CD because the file is too big, what's going on?
ddcan be used to burn an ISO (
sudo dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/dir/to/file.iso)
MB. Even if it's not, you should be aware of it to save you headaches later on.
