RHEL 5 mkisofs issue


Trying to create a iso image for my RHEL5 image but when I try to issue this command it complains about a node.

mkisofs -o RHEL5-dvd1.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -R -J -V "Redhat 5" -A "Redhat 5" -p "Cinq" -T isolinux/

This is the error that I get when I run this command.

mkisofs: No such file or directory. Invalid node - isolinux/

I am at a complete lost of why it thinks isolinux is a node name.

I have looked at the man pages to see if any of the switches that I used are for node names and none of them are.

Unless I'm mistaken, because you're telling it--

mkisofs -o RHEL5-dvd1.iso -b isolinux.bin -c boot.cat -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -r -R -J -V "Redhat 5" -A "Redhat 5" -p "Cinq" -T isolinux/

So it's looking at it, does isolinux exist as a subdirectory of your current directory?

Handiest thing is to move the options around. isolinux/ is a bit ambiguous - /full/path/to/isolinux/* and make sure the -T is three options away.

instead of mkisofs, I now use isomaster (yum install under fedora).
It may not be as powerful, but for what I need (add files, kickstarts, replace some files) it works just fine, and learning it takes a few minutes

Yes it does exist as a subdirectory.

You might try changing this part to include isolinx: ...isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/boot.cat....

I believe I got this from isolinux doc page and have not tested it so don't really know if it will work as I use Grub for isoimages.

As stated above, your isolinux directory does exist AND you are in the diretory immediately above?

I have tried that already also, it keeps complaining about the isolinux/ as a node.
