Description teri-aka TrAns13nT 2002-07-16 22:12:20 UTC
when xcdroast is ran it says this:

** WARNING **: Invalid mkisofs version 1.13 found.
        Expecting at least version 1.15a17
        Start xcdroast with the -n option to override (not recommended!)

and when started with the -n option anyhow no cd burns properly, all fail, even
all simulation runs. I've tried making a new ebuild for mkisofs-1.15a17 but when
attempting to digest it says this:

!!! Name error in 1.15a17
!!! Error: PF is null; exiting.

I have also attempted to find the mkisofs-1.15a17 at the location that
mkisofs-1.13 is located at accord to it's ebuild andf it's no where to be found,
even though a readme at that site
( says that 1.13 is out of
date and where the newest version could be found I still remaind unsuccesful in
finding it. Well, y'all have fun figuring this one out ;-)

Hey Teri, i'll take a look into this one as soon as i'm at home. (Most likely in 6-7 Hrs). 

Cya on 

Comment 3 phoen][x 2002-07-17 11:18:22 UTC
okay teri, try that:

unmerge mkisofs ("emerge -C mkisofs")
and merge cdrtools. looks like mkisofs is obsolete.

Comment 4 teri-aka TrAns13nT 2002-07-18 14:15:57 UTC
pheon][x unmergeing mkisofs and emerge cdrtools fixed the problem
Comment 5 phoen][x 2002-07-19 01:01:33 UTC
Okay, will close this bug then.
