mkbootdisk can't generate isos
Last modified: 2009-10-08 23:40:00 EDT
Description of problem:
mkbootdisk --iso fails, it tries to copy isolinux.bin from the old place (syslinux has changed).
rpmbuild --rebuild on http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/mkbootdisk/1.5.3/5.fc11/src/mkbootdisk-1.5.3-5.fc11.src.rpm fails (target arch:i586, default for the i386 F11), but if you make rpmbuild -tb on the source inside the SRPMS (mkbootdisk-1.5.3.tar.gz), it works (with the patch).

simple patch - location of isolinux.bin
As of today this bug is still open. Are there any chances to get this patch into the mainline repository?
The latest stable version shipped with F11 is mkbootdisk-1.5.3-4.fc10.i386 dated Aug, 8th 2008.
"mkbootdisk --device 22.214.171.124-64.fc11.iso --iso 126.96.36.199-64.fc11.i586" produces the following result:
cp: cannot stat `/usr/lib/syslinux/isolinux.bin': No such file or directory
genisoimage: Uh oh, I cant find the boot image 'isolinux/isolinux.bin' !
