Re: tools/boot/woody/boot-i386 : jigdo images too large !
OOOOhhhh, I hate it when I am wrong.
You are correct, I was looking at the output from df
and it lied to me, or rather I mis-understood what it said.
I always thought there were 333000 sectors of 2048 bytes,
or 681984000 bytes on a 650mb CD/ROM, so you are
correct, all the p(x) images are smaller than that.
So sorry, my mistake.
The problem I had, seems to be localized to the
specific CD/ROM drive I was using. While it will
mount pressed CD's it does not seem to like some
CD-R's. Specifically the ones I burned reciently,
using 80 minute CD-R's
I think the Creative 24x drive, manufactured in 1997,
is heading for the round file ;-)
