Create a ISO without changing filenames (genisoimage)


I am attempting to create an ISO image of a customized yum repository on CentOS 6. Whenever I use genisoimage, it changes the file names in some way. I have tried a variety of different options, but can't figure out how to just make it keep filenames the same.

For example, the directory structure goes from:
Code:
repodata/
Packages/
CentOS-Media.repo
To:
Code:
repodata/
packages/
centos-media.repo
This breaks the repository since the package directory no longer matches (packages != Packages). It also makes all of the package names lowercase.

The options I tried are:
Code:
genisoimage -allow-leading-dots -allow-lowercase -allow-multidot -d -D -iso-level 4 -relaxed-filenames -no-iso-translate -o repo.iso repo/
What are the options that will make genisoimage just copy the directory to an ISO image.

Thanks!

Try:

Code:
cd repo && mkisofs -r -N -allow-leading-dots -d -J -T -o /tmp/my.iso .
