Ok, I've used mkisofs a number of times quite sucessfully -- thanks Eric
Youngdale for writting it.
In the past day or two I've been trying to use it to prepare a backup
to write to a CDR. I used following command line:
vienna:/home# mkisofs -L -r -l -T -o /Gravy/glac.img glac
After completion, I mount the image through loop back to test it. The
image is only
vienna:/home# mount -t iso9660 -o ro,loop=/dev/loop0 /Gravy/glac.img
Then cd to /mnt/cdrom and try a du. This gives the following error:
[a fair number of files, perhaps half of the "disk"]
du: cannot change to `..' from directory ./DV_Products/: No such file or
I get a syslogd error message in /var/log/messages of:
Sep 10 23:31:11 vienna kernel: .. Directory not in first block of
Sep 10 23:31:11 vienna kernel: Backlink not properly set 1c f74c.
I've checked a couple of things, including not archiving DV_Products
same error occurs in a different directory. It is possible to remove
the error completely
but there is very little in the archive after that.
Can anyone that has seen this before help me? Or if you haven't seen
it, perhaps some
guesses? I do have some sym links in that particular sub directory, but
I think they are
I have tried burning the resulting CD image. The first attempt failed
very close to the
end. The second CD was mountable but had a fair amount of corruption.
Thanks tons for anyone who can give me a pointer for this!
