mkisofs - flag question


Hi folks,

On running following command;
# mkisofs -o cdimage.raw -Joliet-long /path/to/DirectoryA /path/to/DirectoryB /path/to/DirectoryC etc.

What flag must be up to retain files/subdirectories in their respective directories instead of mixing all into one directory? "graft-points" not preferred because it needs additional typing for name of directories.

TIA

BR

I think you are going to have to use either -graft-points or -root. I always move/copy the files to a temporary directory and make an iso of the temporary directory, which will keep the directory tree. Then of course I just delete the temporary directory.

Hi /bin/bash,

Tks for your advice.

The methods mentioned need additional work. I use -graft-points most the time. I'm now searching whether there is an available flag for my purpose on mkisofs.

On k3b it retains the original directory trees. I wonder how it can do that.

B.R.
