Proposing bug for RHEL-5.3 FasTrack and granting Devel ACK.
Read ya, Phil
This bugzilla was reviewed by QE as a non-FasTrack request.
It has since been proposed for FasTrack. The qa_ack has
been reset. QE needs to re-review this bugzilla for FasTrack.
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
on the solution and/or where to find the updated files,
please follow the link below. You may reopen this bug report
if the solution does not work for you.
If you did use an original version of mkisofs, you would see this:
mkisofs -no-emul-boot /blah
Setting input-charset to 'ISO8859-1' from locale.
mkisofs: Missing boot image name, use -eltorito-boot option.

RedHat still ships the defective dead fork from 10 years ago.
