Can genisoimage burn folder ; hence cant they be recursive ??


I would get "'checkgmail-1.13/ChangeLog' have the same Rock Ridge name 'ChangeLog'."
and so on
mkisofs -r -l -joliet-long -L -D -allow-lowercase -allow-multidot -o ../frenchn00b.iso *
Since mkisofs is not able to create folders.
Is there any recursive mkisofs / genisoimage ?

Hm, looks like mkisofs/genisoimage just make a union of supplied folders. I.e. try "cd .. ; mkisofs -r -l -joliet-long -L -D -allow-lowercase -allow-multidot -o frenchn00b.iso ./cd-contents"
