mkisofs problems for dvds


i've been using the mkisofs command so I can copy my ogg files to a dvd. However, I'm annoyed by the 8 character name limitations. Is there a way to expand the allowable file name length or is there another tool similar to mkisofs

i know you can compile support for long filenames into your kernel, but other than that, i dunno ;o)

what program are you using to do the burning?

you can use k3b, it has an option somewhere to enable filename length of 31 characters. Like the other dude says though, maybe you need rockridge support in the kernel, and joiliet would be a good idea too.. I've always included these so I'm not sure if you actually need them or not, so give k3b a go, it's totally cool anyway

I use dvdrecord or cdrecord. How can I make a rockridge or joiliet filesystem? I checked the manpages for cdrecord and it didn't mention any filesystem except iso9660. Does it not support any other fs? I'd appreciate any help. J

rockridge and joiliet are not filesystems, I think they are a sort of extention to iso9660. I've no idea how to enable 31 character length filenames in cdrecord, but I know that it can be done because k3b uses cdrecord to do the burning. I'll have a quick look on google for ya

Hmm, well i still dont know, but i found out what rock ridge and joliet are all about, and you definately need one of them...

Rock Ridge Interchange Protocol.
This is used to further describe the files in the
iso9660 filesystem to a unix host, and provides information
such as longer filenames, uid/gid, posix permissions, and
block and character devices.

Joliet directory records.
In addition to regular iso9660 file names.
This is primarily useful when
the discs are to be used on Windows-NT or Windows-95
machines. The Joliet filenames are specified in
Unicode and each path component can be up to 64 Unicode
characters long.

thanks fatgod, that worked very well. I used the following command


mkisofs -R -J -o file.iso directory .


Much appreciated. eastj
