mkisofs 2gb problem|
Having just put a DVD burner on a linux box I tried something like:
growisofs -Z /dev/hdd -R -J backup_bigger_than_2gb.tar.gzand it didn't work. It spat out some 'file too large' error. Then I tried doing a udf filesystem one:
growisofs -Z /dev/hdd -udf backup_bigger_than_2gb.tar.gzThat also didn't work. Same error. I have mkisofs 2.0.3 or some such which meant to be pretty recent. The only solution I've found so far is to use mkudffs as follows:
# Make sure you have 4.7Gb of free hard drive space: dd if=/dev/zero of=image2.udf bs=64k seek=71715 count=1 losetup /dev/loop0 image2.udf mkudffs --media-type=dvd /dev/loop0 mount -t udf /dev/loop0 /mnt cp backup_bigger_than_2gb.tar.gz /mnt umount /mnt losetup -d /dev/loop0 growisofs -Z /dev/hdd=image2.udfDouble check the dd command above. I may have it wrong. (NB: mkudffs is part of udftools).
