Pulled Pork and Cole Slaw

I worked on the fuel tank and finished applying fairing mixture on the port side of the port hull, below the waterline. The fuel tank was coated with epoxy and sanded, then painted with rustoleum enamel to protect the epoxy. I was told that it wasn’t necessary to wet sand the epoxy into the metal, [...]

Goodbye Art Bell

The work on Kaimu was delayed by the little "20 hour" dinghy project. I was hustling along, but careful not to make any mistakes. Some were saying they hadn't seen me working like this. I knew I was trying to make up time lost, but fortunately, my normal pace doesn't have to be accelerated that much [...]

D4 at Rest

After 3 coats of gloss white had been applied to the dinghy hull I left it to dry while we went out for burgers at the gas station restaurant. The hull was dry to the touch when we returned and I removed the masking tape, turned the dinghy upright and removed the masking tape and plastic from the seats. [...]

D4 Paint Job

After the interior of the dinghy got its last coat of epoxy, the foam pieces that fill the voids under the seats were forced into place. One of the bulkheads that is the aft seat riser for the midships seat was bowed inward and the foam pieces forced it out straight. Good. Now the foam pieces had [...]

Xfburn fix for Navigatrix

13 December 2017 | st marys, ga
Capn Andy/chilly winter
OK, we had to get an external cd/dvd drive for the CF-C1, since the laptop doesn’t have an internal drive. One task is to re-rip some of my music CD’s so that I have mp3 files for my mp3 player instead of the wma files I have now. Another task is to make a copy of Garmin’s old Mapsource topographic maps for a fellow yardbird who wants to use them for hiking and exploring, nothing to do with nautical.
.
The drive worked fine copying the disk image file to the hard drive, but when we wanted to burn the blank disc, it wasn’t recognized as a disk burner, “No disk burner found” was the error message. I was using Navigatrix’s Xfburn. After some reading on the internet I found lots of help, some of it very dense, but in the end we got it to work properly.
.
First is the command lsusb, where the l is ell not one, which is entered in the terminal in accessories.
.
This returns a list of usb devices which can let you know if the system even sees the drive. Because we were able to use it to read a disk, it was in the list.
.
The next command is dmesg | tail which returns a list of usb device parameters, including the dvd drive’s name and serial number.
.
The next command is ls /dev/sr* which returns the device name sr0.
.
Next we enter udevadm info --name=/dev/sr0 --query=all which returns a whole big list of parameters, including the drive’s serial number. Note that in this command we are entering the device name sr0, if the previous command gave out a different device name we would use that.
.
Next we paste the following command in a text editor: SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_SERIAL}=="xxxxxxx", ENV{ID_TYPE}="cd", ENV{GENERATED}="1", and edit the “xxxxxxx” by replacing it with the drive’s serial number. I used the ID_SERIAL= which is a long model and serial number.
.
Now we  sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-cd.rules to open an editing page on the terminal, kind of like Microsoft’s registry edit, and paste in it our previous “SUBSYSTEM blahty blah” with its edited serial number. On the bottom of the page are the commands to get out of the registry edit, control x gets you started.
.
After you finish this mess you remove the dvd drive from the usb port, then plug it back in. When you try it now in Xfburn it will recognize the drive and allow it to burn a disk.
.
The image is the terminal page that has the serial number
