using growisofs to write dvd causes small file names
 
Hi,I am using openSUSE 10.3.
I used command 'growisofs' to write multisession dvd but it is truncating the file names to 8.3 format.Which option should be given alongwith to have long filenames written or any other command to write multiseesion dvd.

For multisession you'd do something like:

Code:

growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=4 -use-the-force-luke=bufsize:32m -M /dev/dvdrw -graft-points -rational-rock -full-iso9660-filenames -iso-level 2 /path/to/files
adjust speed=, /dev/dvdrw, and /path/to/files as necessary.

see 'man growisofs' for the meaning of -M versus -Z

Code:

      -Z /dev/dvd
              Burn  an  initial session to the selected device. A special form
              of this option is recognized to support burning of  pre-mastered
              images. See EXAMPLES section for further details.

      -M /dev/dvd
              Merge a new session to an existing one.
