#284 make-iso script failes: Bad Option '-moved'


I don't know if that bug occurs because I am using (X)Ubuntu. If so and you are only supporting blank debian , please forgive me and ignore that bugreport. Otherwise:

make-iso /path/to/files foobar.iso

... failes with the following error:

"Bad Option '-moved' (error -1 BADFLAG)."

A look at the make-iso script shows that three times the options

are being used in "mkisofs"-commands. According to the man-page mkisofs only supports the option -hide-rr-moved . So the blanks between the three options have to be removed to make the "make-iso" script work.

I hope that posting was usefull.

    SVN commit #2619 should fix this issue. Having the arguments separate stems from the pre-etch days, before genisoimage was forked from mkisofs. It still works in etch and sid, but has been deprecated for a while now.

    Long story short: new morphix-make-iso package on the way!
