So if you have a solution at hand, it would be glad if you >could let me know. It's fairly easy. You don't need to build the entire aboot package, just the isomarkboot binary. To do that, all I need to do is: 1. apt-get source aboot 2. apply the following patch to aboot-0.9/lib/isolib.c: --- isolib.c 2003-12-01 00:08:05.000000000 +0000 +++ isolib.c.new 2003-12-01 00:04:31.000000000 +0000 @@ -18,7 +18,9 @@ #include <iso.h> #include <isolib.h> -#include <utils.h> +#include <stdio.h> +#include <string.h> +/* #include <utils.h> */ /* iso9660 support code */ 3. cd aboot-0.9/tools 4. make isomarkboot This will give a couple of warnings, but will do the job.
