Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 249928
genisoimage-1.1.6 includes /.. in Rock Ridge and thus fails to merge sessions
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:11 EST
Description of problem:
When using genisoimage to create a Rock Ridge + Joliet session with -r -J, the
Rock Ridge directory "/.." is included. When merging a subsequent session with
-r -J -C MMM,NNN -M /dev/cdrom, it fails because "/.." and (e.g.) "tmpdir/.."
have the same Rock Ridge name.
mkisofs for fc6 did not have this problem, but in that case the -M 2,0,0 faux
scsi notation was used. It is possible the use of -M /dev/cdrom (required for
Fedora 7 libata) provokes this new behaviour (inclusion of "..").
I think this problem is distinct from
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create Rock Ridge session
2. Write to multisession CD
3. Create second session for CD
Error with duplicate Rock Ridge names.
genisoimage fails with duplicate Rock Ridge names.
Workaround is to roll back to genisoimage-1.1.2-4.fc7.x86_64 (from Fedora
release). This version reports that (e.g.) "tmpdir/.." is ignored when creating
Given this bug and
is it time for a genisoimage-1.1.6 product recall?
yum.conf exclude=genisoimage is your friend.
I think, this is the same bug as 248262.
Here we go again:
cdrkit-1.1.6-5.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
cdrkit-1.1.6-5.fc7 has been pushed to the Fedora 7 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I have tested the new genisoimage and can confirm that this bug is resolved.
