Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 248262
iso images produced by genisoimage-1.1.16 contains bad joliet data
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:10 EST
Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Generate .iso file with genisoimage -J
2. Burn CD
3. Read CD on Windows machine
An warning message like:
genisoimage: Unexpected joliet directory length 1700 expected: 1704 ''
is produced by genisoimage as well.
Going back to genisoimage-1.1.12 fixes the problem.
I observe the same problem on my Fedora 7 installation, but my genisoimage is
not 1.1.16 nor 1.1.12, but rather 1.1.6:
# rpm -q genisoimage
It was working fine with genisoimage-1.1.6-1.fc7 on my system for nearly two
months. Now suddenly I get this error:
genisoimage: Unexpected joliet directory length 210 expected: 214 ''
I have reviewed the updates that were installed in the last couple of days, but
did not find any suspect package that may have broken genisoimage. I also tried
and compiled cdrkit-1.1.6-2.fc8.src.rpm, but it didn't help either.
Now I don't have the slightest clue what caused the trouble. Please help! :)
Thanks, Harald. I have tried genisoimage-1.1.6-3.fc7.i386.rpm from Koji.
Good news: The bug seems to been fixed. There is no "Unexpected joliet directory
length" error any more, and the DVD can be read in Windows.
Bad news: Now I get a strange warning instead.
$ genisoimage -JR iso > burn.iso
Unknown file type (unallocated) iso/.. - ignoring and continuing.
It seems to do no harm, though.
The mkisofs and mkhybrid symlinks to genisoimage are missing in the koji RPM.
This breaks growisofs, which uses mkisofs. It was working again after I have
added the symlinks manually.
ok, fixed the bogus warning.
The symlinks should have been installed by alternatives in the post section.
$ ls -l /usr/bin/mkisofs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 25 2007-09-21 08:43 /usr/bin/mkisofs ->
$ ls -l /etc/alternatives/mkisofs
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 20 2007-09-21 08:43 /etc/alternatives/mkisofs ->
Here we go:
Here we go again (wrong link in comment #6):
1.1.6-4 is working now, and the symlinks are also properly set. Thank you!
