'locate bin/mkiso' : /usr/bin/mkisofs

# yum provides */mkisofs

# yum install genisoimage

There is no command by name 'mkiso'.

Yes I tried to use locate cmd after updatedb cmd but, it does't find me anything.
I did it this way :
Code:
[root@redhat6 etc]# yum provides mkiso\*
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin
genisoimage-1.1.9-11.el6.i686 : Creates an image of an ISO9660 filesystem
Repo        : rhel-i386-server-6
Matched from:
Other       : mkisofs = 9:2.01-12



[root@redhat6 etc]# yum provides cdrecord\*
Loaded plugins: rhnplugin
wodim-1.1.9-11.el6.i686 : A command line CD/DVD recording program
Repo        : rhel-i386-server-6
Matched from:
Other       : cdrecord = 9:2.01-12
And then
Code:
yum install genisoimage-1.1.9-11.el6.i686
yum install wodim-1.1.9-11.el6.i686
There is no command 'mkiso' but there is 'mkisofs'.

thx for help anyway.

Be careful, genisoimage is an unmaintained and buggy variant from a 7 year old mkisofs source. I cannot recommend to use it.

The same applies to wodim vs. cdrecord.

I recommend to use recent original software from: ftp://ftp.berlios.de/pub/cdrecord/alpha/
