hidden files lost when create iso on rhel6


Hi,

My goal is to create iso file from the custom installation tree got from redhat image.

But I found that the hidden file (lead with dot) are lost in the iso.

Here is the command is use

Quote:
mkisofs -r -R -T -J -l -allow-leading-dots -allow-multidot -V "custom ol63" -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -o /ol/iso/ol63_custom_spt_v4.iso ./
below files are lost

Quote:
[root@bkkd-dce380g6 staging_iso]# ls -la /dvd1
total 911
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 44 Jun 27 2012 .discinfo
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1546 Jun 27 2012 .treeinfo
Did I do something wrong ? The file permission also change from -rw-r--r-- to -r-xr-xr-x

Thank you

http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Mkisofs :
-ldots
Allows files to begin with "." (period).
Use this option to write Unix/Linux hidden files.
