How do you make long filenames with mkisofs?


How would I make a filename, like, say, [aX]_Outlaw_Star_-_Episode_09_-_A_Journey_of_Adventure.ogm work on mkisofs? It always shortens it, no matter what I do. I have tried

mkisofs -R --joliet-long -U -V Tester -o test.iso [aX]_Outlaw_Star_-_Episode_09_-_A_Journey_of_Adventure.ogm

and

mkisofs -l -U -V Tester -o test.iso [aX]_Outlaw_Star_-_Episode_09_-_A_Journey_of_Adventure.ogm

but no cigar.

It always shortens it to [ax]_outlaw_star_-_episode_.ogm

This can be confusing when you want to burn multiple long name files.

I know I could shorten the name, but I have seen xcdroast make them have long filenames, and I would like to know how.

You need the -joliet-long flag.
