MkIsofs buggy?


I have some problem with mkisofs. I tried some progs of burning, and no one can make mkisofs works. No matter the version I try, every progs told me something like "-graft-points command not found". Sometime the error msg is a bit different if I try it with an older version. What the hell is the version of mkisofs I'm suppose to take to use this command? I already tried 1.10, 1.11-03 and 1.12a-beta... always got the same error... I'm running it at root with a working burner, I really dunno what's going wrong.

I'm not sure if you're have trouble when you run mkisofs, or when you try and burn a CD.

If you type 'mkisofs -o file.img *' in /home/half_elf, what error message do you get?

let's say you have file bob.txt and you want to burn it.

from command line type:
mkisofs -v -o file.iso bob.txt

after it finishes type:
chrecord -v dev=0,0,0 file.iso

I want to use a GUI frontend for mkisofs.
gCombust and Eroaster gave me the same error "mkisofs -graft-point option not found"

I can use mkisofs in text mode but no GUI progs can make it runs.

Type 'mkisofs --version' and tell us what it says...

I checked the help for version 1.14 and the option is '-graft-points', not '-graft-point.' I wonder if the frontend is expecting a different version than the one you are using. Take a look at the troubleshooting help for the frontends--they may tell you what mkisofs version they're happier with.

Humm Ok, I have not tried a mkisofs version beyond 1.12a (the latest I found yet)... do you have an adress where I can get 1.14? mkisofs is very hard to find alone, it is always given with cr-record or cdr-tools (and these utilites use very old mkisofs version).

(and the error is about "graft-points sorry for mispelling, I was too lazy to copy/paste the real error msg)

I'm using Slackware 8.0. Just grab cdrtools.tgz from:

ftp://sunsite.ualberta.ca/pub/unix/L.../slakware/ap1.

What version of Slack are you running, by the way?
