I'm trying to make a system using squashfs and I have been surprised by the behavior of mksquashfs.
I have a folder "parent" in which there are three folders: child1, child2 and .child3 (child3 is hidden)
I want parent to be the root. If I run :
mksquashfs parent mysqh.sqh
only child1 and child2 are included in mysqh.sqh
Same result with :
mksquashfs parent/* mysqh.sqh
However, this works with this command :
mksquashfs child1 child2 .child3 ../mysqh.sqh
Is this a bug or a feature ? ;)
And is there an option in mksquashfs which allows to include automatically the hidden files/directories ?
Thanks for your answers.
Sorry, I'm using squashfs 4.0 + lzma, compiled on a debian lenny.
