"mkisofs does not exist cleanly"


I've had an issue for a while now.

when I try to use K3b, I just get an arror saying:
"mkisofs does n't exist cleanly"

and it won't burn my CD's.

I've tried reinstalling it, but it doesn't help.


have a good one

Try launching mkisofs manually from a command line and see if it gives you the same error.

Also what distro are you using ?

I'm using FC 6 with the 2.6.20 -1.2984 kernel

when I type mkisofs, all I get is:
mkisofs: Missing pathspec.
Usage: mkisofs [options] file

thanks for your help
