Re: mkisofs and "File <filename> did grow" error

I was using mkisofs from cdrtools-2.01 to create an ISO image of the root fs

I upgraded to the mkisofs that comes with cdrtools 2.01.01a09 and now the
backup fails because log files in /var/log grow during the mkisofs process
and it errors out with "File <filename> did grow".

Is there a solution to this?

Don't back up the log files... There are several options which allow you to exclude things, check the man page.
