How do I open those files you download from usenet, used with movies? I know they contain the cd image, and under windows I had isobuster for that. I have found vcdgear, but I'm not keen to use unstable stuff :?

mount the ISO image via the loop-back device:
Code:
su -
mkdir /mnt/loop
mount -o loop /path/to/image.iso /mnt/loop
cd /mnt/loop


Is this what you're looking for?

That's about it, but I have found out it's a large .bin file, and mount doesn't like it. Should I specifiy a special thing? Because it now just wants a filesystem type specified (I do have loopback support).

usually you have two files, a .bin and a .cue file.
the .bin is the actual image, and the .cue file helps cd writing programs to correctly burn it.

once you have both files you can write them with
Code:
cdrdao write filename.cue


provided both files are in the same dir.

do a man cdrdao to learn about more options (like specifying your cd writer device, speed etc.). cdrdao is part of the cdrtools package.

I do have those 2 files, but I don't want to write them. How can I just browse them? (I'm sorry if my question was not very clear)

You can emerge this:
Code:
*  app-cdr/bchunk
      Latest version available: 1.1.1
      Latest version installed: 1.1.1
      Size of downloaded files: 14 kB
      Homepage:    http://hes.iki.fi/bchunk/
      Description: Converts bin/cue CD-images to iso+wav/cdr

Then use it to convert your bin/cue to iso, and loop mount this iso as explain by compu-tom.

You can open (if its a vcd/svcd) .bin files with mplayer. And it'll play fine. You can burn the bin/cue image with cdrdao, and maybe cdrecord (i just use k3b), or any frontend that utilizes it. You can also convert the bin/cue image to mpeg with vcdgear (in portage).

Good luck.

This spits back an error message for me :(

Code:
mount: could not find any device /dev/loop#


Anyone know why?

Thanks,
Matt

*doh* Thanks for helping me with the obvious. I must have forgotten loopback support when I configured my first 2.6 kernel haha
