Hi! Just a quick note to inform you that:- a) I've updated my mkhybrid patches for decent support for El Torito (see the debian-cd thread for more info) The file README.eltorito.2 contains more info on this feature. b) I've added support for making mkhybrid follow symlinks which point outside a particular tree. This means you can do the following, for example:- mkdir cd-testing cd cd-testing ln -s ~/debian/dists/slink . ln -s slink/main/binary-i386/devel/*.deb . mkhybrid -F `pwd` -o ../cdimage.iso -R . And all symlinks which can be left as symlinks will be! To use it, you give mkisofs the option -F with a directory parameter. This directory is the base under which symlinks will be preserved, e.g. in the following case:- mkdir cd-testing cd cd-testing :>../t ln -s ../t . ln -s h t "mkisofs -F `cd ..; pwd` -o ../cdimage.iso -R ." will copy both symlinks *AS SYMLINKS*, and "mkisofs -F `pwd` -o ../cdimage.iso -R ." will dereference t, but keep h as a symlink. I've attached the diffs against mkhybrid-1.12a3.3. Note: this is *highly alpha*, I don't know what the new El Torito stuff will do, but I do know that the symlink stuff works. I'm working on a cd-selector program to select boot-images on boot-up. -- Tom Lees <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com> http://www.lpsg.demon.co.uk/ PGP Key: finger firstname.lastname@example.org, http://www.lpsg.demon.co.uk/pgpkey.txt.
