After a new install of gentoo I tried "emerge gcombust" and got "emerge: there are no ebuilds to satisfy "gcombust"." Why has Gcombust been omitted from portage? In my less than humble opinion (IMLTHO) gcombust is the easiest cd/dvd burner program available. Failing a return of Gcombust what options do i have for an easy to use program?

http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=160175#c3 shows why it was removed.

Graveman could be an alternative.

Crikey Mark you're on the ball :-) . Once again thanks for the link. Tried Graveman, good alternative but my first attempt to burn a bootable iso failed. I may even have to read the manual to get it right. You're a Melbourne bloke.. I'm only a 100 miles away. Are there any future meets for Gentoo folk in Australia's most sophisticated city?

Yes, I am going to try to have a Gentoo miniconf at linux.conf.au 2008 in Melbourne. Watch the website linked in my profile for any information, and subscribe the mailing list so you won't miss out on news.

Very cool, if there's anything I can do to help with the organisation of such just ask.
