Re: Troubles with debian-cd

Sorry about the delay.  The rest of my life caught up with me.

worked with xorriso 1.2.9  though.

When using xorriso 1.2.9 the log file does say 650 Mib 332031 2k blocks
BUT about every 650k or so 'xorriso -as mkisofs ..' tries to run and fails 
and the build goes onto the next 650k.  This happens 63 times which 
squares with the final image size.
With xorriso 1.2.2 the build stops at 650k.

My misobservation, to put it politely.

I am hoping to try the latest svn version in the next few days.
