Everyone is permitted to copy and distribute verbatim copies
of this license document, but changing it is not allowed.
The licenses for most software are designed to take away your
freedom to share and change it. By contrast, the GNU General Public
License is intended to guarantee your freedom to share and change free
software--to make sure the software is free for all its users. This
General Public License applies to most of the Free Software
Foundation's software and to any other program whose authors commit to
using it. (Some other Free Software Foundation software is covered by
the GNU Library General Public License instead.) You can apply it to
your programs, too.
When we speak of free software, we are referring to freedom, not
price. Our General Public Licenses are designed to make sure that you
have the freedom to distribute copies of free software (and charge for
this service if you wish), that you receive source code or can get it
if you want it, that you can change the software or use pieces of it
in new free programs; and that you know you can do these things.
To protect your rights, we need to make restrictions that forbid
anyone to deny you these rights or to ask you to surrender the rights.
These restrictions translate to certain responsibilities for you if you
distribute copies of the software, or if you modify it.
For example, if you distribute copies of such a program, whether
gratis or for a fee, you must give the recipients all the rights that
you have. You must make sure that they, too, receive or can get the
source code. And you must show them these terms so they know their
We protect your rights with two steps: (1) copyright the software, and
(2) offer you this license which gives you legal permission to copy,
distribute and/or modify the software.
Also, for each author's protection and ours, we want to make certain
that everyone understands that there is no warranty for this free
software. If the software is modified by someone else and passed on, we
want its recipients to know that what they have is not the original, so
that any problems introduced by others will not reflect on the original
authors' reputations.
Finally, any free program is threatened constantly by software
patents. We wish to avoid the danger that redistributors of a free
program will individually obtain patent licenses, in effect making the
program proprietary. To prevent this, we have made it clear that any
patent must be licensed for everyone's free use or not licensed at all.
The precise terms and conditions for copying, distribution and
modification follow.
0. This License applies to any program or other work which contains
a notice placed by the copyright holder saying it may be distributed
under the terms of this General Public License. The "Program", below,
refers to any such program or work, and a "work based on the Program"
means either the Program or any derivative work under copyright law:
that is to say, a work containing the Program or a portion of it,
either verbatim or with modifications and/or translated into another
language. (Hereinafter, translation is included without limitation in
the term "modification".) Each licensee is addressed as "you".
Activities other than copying, distribution and modification are not
covered by this License; they are outside its scope. The act of
running the Program is not restricted, and the output from the Program
is covered only if its contents constitute a work based on the
Program (independent of having been made by running the Program).
Whether that is true depends on what the Program does.
1. You may copy and distribute verbatim copies of the Program's
source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you
conspicuously and appropriately publish on each copy an appropriate
copyright notice and disclaimer of warranty; keep intact all the
notices that refer to this License and to the absence of any warranty;
and give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License
along with the Program.
You may charge a fee for the physical act of transferring a copy, and
you may at your option offer warranty protection in exchange for a fee.
2. You may modify your copy or copies of the Program or any portion
of it, thus forming a work based on the Program, and copy and
distribute such modifications or work under the terms of Section 1
above, provided that you also meet all of these conditions:
a) You must cause the modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that you changed the files and the date of any change.
b) You must cause any work that you distribute or publish, that in
whole or in part contains or is derived from the Program or any
part thereof, to be licensed as a whole at no charge to all third
parties under the terms of this License.
c) If the modified program normally reads commands interactively
when run, you must cause it, when started running for such
interactive use in the most ordinary way, to print or display an
announcement including an appropriate copyright notice and a
notice that there is no warranty (or else, saying that you provide
a warranty) and that users may redistribute the program under
these conditions, and telling the user how to view a copy of this
License. (Exception: if the Program itself is interactive but
does not normally print such an announcement, your work based on
the Program is not required to print an announcement.)
These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If
identifiable sections of that work are not derived from the Program,
and can be reasonably considered independent and separate works in
themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those
sections when you distribute them as separate works. But when you
distribute the same sections as part of a whole which is a work based
on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be on the terms of
this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the
entire whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest
your rights to work written entirely by you; rather, the intent is to
exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative or
collective works based on the Program.
In addition, mere aggregation of another work not based on the Program
with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume of
a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under
the scope of this License.
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such
an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for
making modifications to it. For an executable work, complete source
code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any
associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to
control compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a
special exception, the source code distributed need not include
anything that is normally distributed (in either source or binary
form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the
operating system on which the executable runs, unless that component
itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
4. You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program
except as expressly provided under this License. Any attempt
otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute the Program is
void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License.
However, parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under
this License will not have their licenses terminated so long as such
parties remain in full compliance.
5. You are not required to accept this License, since you have not
signed it. However, nothing else grants you permission to modify or
distribute the Program or its derivative works. These actions are
prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by
modifying or distributing the Program (or any work based on the
Program), you indicate your acceptance of this License to do so, and
all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying
the Program or works based on it.
6. Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the
Program), the recipient automatically receives a license from the
original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the Program subject to
these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further
restrictions on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein.
You are not responsible for enforcing compliance by third parties to
this License.
7. If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement or for any other reason (not limited to patent issues),
conditions are imposed on you (whether by court order, agreement or
otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot
distribute so as to satisfy simultaneously your obligations under this
License and any other pertinent obligations, then as a consequence you
may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent
license would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by
all those who receive copies directly or indirectly through you, then
the only way you could satisfy both it and this License would be to
refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under
any particular circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to
apply and the section as a whole is intended to apply in other
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any
patents or other property right claims or to contest validity of any
such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting the
integrity of the free software distribution system, which is
implemented by public license practices. Many people have made
generous contributions to the wide range of software distributed
through that system in reliance on consistent application of that
system; it is up to the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing
to distribute software through any other system and a licensee cannot
impose that choice.
This section is intended to make thoroughly clear what is believed to
be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8. If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in
certain countries either by patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the
original copyright holder who places the Program under this License
may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding
those countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among
countries not thus excluded. In such case, this License incorporates
the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9. The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions
of the General Public License from time to time. Such new versions will
be similar in spirit to the present version, but may differ in detail to
address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program
specifies a version number of this License which applies to it and "any
later version", you have the option of following the terms and conditions
either of that version or of any later version published by the Free
Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of
this License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software
10. If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free
programs whose distribution conditions are different, write to the author
to ask for permission. For software which is copyrighted by the Free
Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we sometimes
make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals
of preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and
of promoting the sharing and reuse of software generally.

libisoburn or its program xorriso.
* Bug fix: xorriso -update_r could lead to SIGSEGV if applied to a data file
rather than a directory.
* Bug fix on FreeBSD: xorriso could leave the drive tray locked.
* New option -scsi_log

xorriso novelties:
* Bug fix: xorriso did not blank CD-RW with images that were prepared
on hard disk.
* New configure option --enable-libcdio for system adapter to libcdio-0.83git
libisoburn-0.4.6.pl00.tar.gz Wed Dec 09 2009

libisoburn-0.4.4.pl00.tar.gz Wed Oct 28 2009
xorriso novelties:
* Bug fix: With -as cdrecord : -xa1 and -xamix were ignored although they do
* Option -toc now reports the individual media type. E.g. with a DVD+RW:
"Media product: RICOHJPN/W11/49 , Ricoh Company Limited"
* New option -pvd_info displays image id strings. New options -system_id , -
volset_id allow to set such image id strings.
* New option -mount_opts tries to circumvent an eventual ban to mount the same
device twice. Some Linux systems allow to mount two sessions of the same
media only if they get fooled via the loop device.
* New option -scdbackup_tag performs the task of the scdbackup MD5 checksum
filter inside xorriso.
Already fixed by patch releases of xorriso-0.4.2:
* Bug fix: -cut_out deleted previously cut-out pieces of the same file
* Bug fix libisofs: Filenames could lose blanks during a multi-session cycle

single files by comparing their image data with their MD5 sums.
* Options -compare, -compare_r, -update, update_r now can use recorded MD5.
* New -find actions check_md5, get_md5, make_md5 allow to check, to display or
to recompute MD5 checksums of data files. New find test -has_md5
distinguishes data files which have recorded MD5 from files which have none.
* New -find test -has_any_xattr and action get_any_xattr allow to inspect the
libisofs specific attributes of namespace "isofs".
* Options -lsl and lsdl now display correct link counts if -hardlinks is on.

See file README for libisoburn and xorriso specific installation instructions.
This file here is rather a manual for advanced usage of ./configure
Copyright (C) 1994, 1995, 1996, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005,
2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This file is free documentation; the Free Software Foundation gives
unlimited permission to copy, distribute and modify it.
Basic Installation
Briefly, the shell commands `./configure; make; make install' should
configure, build, and install this package. The following
more-detailed instructions are generic; see the `README' file for
instructions specific to this package.
The `configure' shell script attempts to guess correct values for
various system-dependent variables used during compilation. It uses
those values to create a `Makefile' in each directory of the package.
It may also create one or more `.h' files containing system-dependent
definitions. Finally, it creates a shell script `config.status' that
you can run in the future to recreate the current configuration, and a
file `config.log' containing compiler output (useful mainly for
debugging `configure').
It can also use an optional file (typically called `config.cache'
and enabled with `--cache-file=config.cache' or simply `-C') that saves
the results of its tests to speed up reconfiguring. Caching is
disabled by default to prevent problems with accidental use of stale
cache files.
If you need to do unusual things to compile the package, please try
to figure out how `configure' could check whether to do them, and mail
diffs or instructions to the address given in the `README' so they can
be considered for the next release. If you are using the cache, and at
some point `config.cache' contains results you don't want to keep, you
may remove or edit it.
The file `' (or `') is used to create
`configure' by a program called `autoconf'. You need `' if
you want to change it or regenerate `configure' using a newer version
of `autoconf'.
The simplest way to compile this package is:
1. `cd' to the directory containing the package's source code and type
`./configure' to configure the package for your system.
Running `configure' might take a while. While running, it prints
some messages telling which features it is checking for.
2. Type `make' to compile the package.
3. Optionally, type `make check' to run any self-tests that come with
the package.
4. Type `make install' to install the programs and any data files and
5. You can remove the program binaries and object files from the
source code directory by typing `make clean'. To also remove the
files that `configure' created (so you can compile the package for
a different kind of computer), type `make distclean'. There is
also a `make maintainer-clean' target, but that is intended mainly
for the package's developers. If you use it, you may have to get
all sorts of other programs in order to regenerate files that came
with the distribution.
Compilers and Options
Some systems require unusual options for compilation or linking that the
`configure' script does not know about. Run `./configure --help' for
details on some of the pertinent environment variables.
You can give `configure' initial values for configuration parameters
by setting variables in the command line or in the environment. Here
is an example:
./configure CC=c99 CFLAGS=-g LIBS=-lposix
*Note Defining Variables::, for more details.
Compiling For Multiple Architectures
You can compile the package for more than one kind of computer at the
same time, by placing the object files for each architecture in their
own directory. To do this, you can use GNU `make'. `cd' to the
directory where you want the object files and executables to go and run
the `configure' script. `configure' automatically checks for the
source code in the directory that `configure' is in and in `..'.
With a non-GNU `make', it is safer to compile the package for one
architecture at a time in the source code directory. After you have
installed the package for one architecture, use `make distclean' before
reconfiguring for another architecture.
Installation Names
By default, `make install' installs the package's commands under
`/usr/local/bin', include files under `/usr/local/include', etc. You
can specify an installation prefix other than `/usr/local' by giving
`configure' the option `--prefix=PREFIX'.
You can specify separate installation prefixes for
architecture-specific files and architecture-independent files. If you
pass the option `--exec-prefix=PREFIX' to `configure', the package uses
PREFIX as the prefix for installing programs and libraries.
Documentation and other data files still use the regular prefix.
In addition, if you use an unusual directory layout you can give
options like `--bindir=DIR' to specify different values for particular
kinds of files. Run `configure --help' for a list of the directories
you can set and what kinds of files go in them.
If the package supports it, you can cause programs to be installed
with an extra prefix or suffix on their names by giving `configure' the
option `--program-prefix=PREFIX' or `--program-suffix=SUFFIX'.
Optional Features
Some packages pay attention to `--enable-FEATURE' options to
`configure', where FEATURE indicates an optional part of the package.
They may also pay attention to `--with-PACKAGE' options, where PACKAGE
is something like `gnu-as' or `x' (for the X Window System). The
`README' should mention any `--enable-' and `--with-' options that the
package recognizes.
For packages that use the X Window System, `configure' can usually
find the X include and library files automatically, but if it doesn't,
you can use the `configure' options `--x-includes=DIR' and
`--x-libraries=DIR' to specify their locations.
Specifying the System Type
There may be some features `configure' cannot figure out automatically,
but needs to determine by the type of machine the package will run on.
Usually, assuming the package is built to be run on the _same_
architectures, `configure' can figure that out, but if it prints a
message saying it cannot guess the machine type, give it the
`--build=TYPE' option. TYPE can either be a short name for the system
type, such as `sun4', or a canonical name which has the form:
where SYSTEM can have one of these forms:
See the file `config.sub' for the possible values of each field. If
`config.sub' isn't included in this package, then this package doesn't
need to know the machine type.
If you are _building_ compiler tools for cross-compiling, you should
use the option `--target=TYPE' to select the type of system they will
produce code for.
If you want to _use_ a cross compiler, that generates code for a
platform different from the build platform, you should specify the
"host" platform (i.e., that on which the generated programs will
eventually be run) with `--host=TYPE'.
Sharing Defaults
If you want to set default values for `configure' scripts to share, you
can create a site shell script called `' that gives default
values for variables like `CC', `cache_file', and `prefix'.
`configure' looks for `PREFIX/share/' if it exists, then
`PREFIX/etc/' if it exists. Or, you can set the
`CONFIG_SITE' environment variable to the location of the site script.
A warning: not all `configure' scripts look for a site script.
Defining Variables
Variables not defined in a site shell script can be set in the
environment passed to `configure'. However, some packages may run
configure again during the build, and the customized values of these
variables may be lost. In order to avoid this problem, you should set
them in the `configure' command line, using `VAR=value'. For example:
./configure CC=/usr/local2/bin/gcc
causes the specified `gcc' to be used as the C compiler (unless it is
overridden in the site shell script).
Unfortunately, this technique does not work for `CONFIG_SHELL' due to
an Autoconf bug. Until the bug is fixed you can use this workaround:
CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash /bin/bash ./configure CONFIG_SHELL=/bin/bash
`configure' Invocation
`configure' recognizes the following options to control how it operates.
Print a summary of the options to `configure', and exit.
Print the version of Autoconf used to generate the `configure'
script, and exit.
Enable the cache: use and save the results of the tests in FILE,
traditionally `config.cache'. FILE defaults to `/dev/null' to
disable caching.
Alias for `--cache-file=config.cache'.
Do not print messages saying which checks are being made. To
suppress all normal output, redirect it to `/dev/null' (any error
messages will still be shown).
Look for the package's source code in directory DIR. Usually
`configure' can determine that directory automatically.
`configure' also accepts some other, not widely useful, options. Run
`configure --help' for more details.

libisoburn and xorriso. By Vreixo Formoso <>
and Thomas Schmitt <>
Integrated sub project of
Copyright (C) 2006-2012 Vreixo Formoso, Thomas Schmitt.
Provided under GPL version 2 or later.
libisoburn is a frontend for libraries libburn and libisofs which enables
creation and expansion of ISO-9660 filesystems on all CD/DVD/BD media supported
by libburn. This includes media like DVD+RW, which do not support multi-session
management on media level and even plain disk files or block devices.
The price for that is thorough specialization on data files in ISO-9660
filesystem images. So libisoburn is not suitable for audio (CD-DA) or any
other CD layout which does not entirely consist of ISO-9660 sessions.
xorriso is an application of libisoburn, libisofs, and libburn, which reads
commands from program arguments, files, stdin, or readline.
Its features are also available via a C language API of libisoburn.
Currently they are fully supported on Linux with kernels >= 2.4,
on FreeBSD with ATAPI/CAM support enabled in the kernel, see atapicam(4),
and on OpenSolaris (tested with kernel 5.11).
On other X/Open compliant systems libburn will only offer POSIX i/o with disk
file objects, but no direct MMC operation on CD/DVD/BD drives.
By using this software you agree to the disclaimer at the end of this text:
"... without even the implied warranty ..."
Compilation, First Glimpse, Installation
Dynamic library and compile time header requirements for libisoburn-1.2.4 :
- , version libburn-1.2.4 or higher
- , version libisofs-1.2.4 or higher
libisoburn and xorriso will not start with libraries which are older than their
include headers seen at compile time.
Obtain libisoburn-1.2.4.tar.gz, take it to a directory of your choice
and do:
tar xzf libisoburn-1.2.4.tar.gz
cd libisoburn-1.2.4
Within that directory execute:
./configure --prefix=/usr
Then become superuser and execute
make install
which will make available and the program xorriso.
On GNU/Linux it will try to run program ldconfig with the library installation
directory as only argument. Failure to do so will not abort installation.
One may disable ldconfig by ./configure option --disable-ldconfig-at-install .
By use of a version script, the library exposes no other function
names but those of the API definitions in <libisoburn/libisoburn.h> and
If -Wl,--version-script=... makes problems with the local compiler, then
disable this encapsulation feature by
./configure --disable-versioned-libs
make clean ; make
The ./configure script of libisoburn can check via pkg-config whether suitable
libburn and libisoburn are installed. Regrettably this test failed on several
systems due to local pkg-config problems. So it is disabled by default and may
be enabled by:
./configure --enable-pkg-check-modules
In this case, ./configure fails if no suitable installations are found.
libisoburn comes with a command line and dialog application named xorriso,
which offers a substantial part of libisoburn features to shell scripts and
users. Its file xorriso/README_gnu_xorriso describes the tarball of the
derived package GNU xorriso as first preference for a statically linked
xorriso installation.
The libisoburn installation described above produces a dynamically linked
xorriso binary depending on,,
After installation documentation is available via
man xorriso
man xorrisofs
man xorrecord
Several alias links point to the xorriso binary:
xorrisofs starts xorriso with -as mkisofs emulation already enabled
xorrecord starts xorriso with -as cdrecord emulation already enabled
osirrox starts with -osirrox image-to-disk copying already enabled
By default xorriso will depend on libreadline if the readline-dev headers
are present. This dependcy can be avoided by running
./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-libreadline
make clean ; make
Never omit the "make clean" command after switching libreadline enabling.
Other deliberate dependency reduction options of ./configure are:
--disable-libacl avoid use of ACL functions like acl_to_text()
--disable-xattr avoid use of xattr functions like listxattr() on Linux
resp. extattr_list_file() on FreeBSD
--disable-zlib avoid use of zlib functions like compress2()
--disable-libjte avoid use of libjte for -jigdo command
xorriso allows to use external processes as file content filters. This is
a potential security risk which may be avoided by ./configure option
By default the filter feature is disabled if effective user id and real
user id differ. This ban can be lifted by
In some situations Linux may deliver a better write performance to DVD drives
if 64 KB rather than 32 KB are transmitted in each write operation.
64k can be made default at configure time by:
libisoburn, libisofs, and libburn C language API
For the lower API concepts and calls see
as well as
xorriso C language API
Actually the dynamically linked xorriso binary is only a small start program
for the xorriso API that is implemented inside libisoburn.
There are API calls for command readers and interpreters, and there are
API calls for each single command of xorriso.
Interested programmers should have a look into the API definition at
and the start program
The header file xorriso.h gets installed suitable for
#include <libisoburn/xorriso.h>
So after installation of a binary libisoburn package you may find it e.g. as
xorriso under control of a (GUI) frontend process
The dialog mode allows frontend programs to connect via pipes to the standard
input and output of xorriso. Several commands of xorriso help with receiving
and parsing of reply messages.
As a proof of concept, there is the Tcl/Tk script xorriso-tcltk which can
be launched by this shell command:
Or in the xorriso build directory, without installation of xorriso:
xorriso/xorriso -launch_frontend frontend/xorriso-tcltk --stdio --
In the running GUI, click with the rightmost mouse button on any GUI element
to get its particular help text.
See file frontend/README-tcltk for a short introduction.
See its Tcl code for getting an idea how this gets achieved.
Further there is the C program frontend/frontend_pipes_xorriso.c which
forks a xorriso process and shows the same communication gestures as
In particular it connects to xorriso via two pipes, sends commands, waits
for all replies of a command, picks info out of the xorriso message sieve,
and parses reply message lines into words.
Drives and Disk File Objects
The user of libisoburn applications needs operating system dependent
permissions for the CD/DVD/BD drives which shall be used.
On Linux and FreeBSD this means -rw-permissions, even if only reading is
intended. On Solaris one needs privileges "basic,sys_devices" and r-permission,
even if writing is intended.
A list of rw-accessible drives can be obtained by
xorriso -devices
resp. by xorriso API call
resp. by libburn API call
A possible source of problems are hald or other automounters.
If you can spot a process "hald-addon-storage" with the address of
your desired drive, then consider to kill it.
A similar process "udisks-daemon: polling ..." can be seen on newer Linuxes.
On Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.2 amd64 there is
where one can remove all CD drives ("sr*") from the list of automountable
KERNEL=="sd*|hd*|mmcblk*|mspblk*", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_NOPOLICY}="0"
# KERNEL=="sd*|hd*|sr*|mmcblk*|mspblk*", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_NOPOLICY}="0"
Copying the recognition criterion from
one can prevent automounting a single drive, too. E.g.:
SUBSYSTEM=="block", ENV{ID_CDROM}=="?*", ENV{ID_PATH}=="pci-0000:00:11.0-scsi-2:0:0:0", ENV{UDISKS_PRESENTATION_NOPOLICY}:="1"
If you cannot get rid of the automounter, try whether it helps to always load
the drive tray manually before starting a write run of xorriso. Wait until the
drive light is off and the mounted media appears.
Then try to unmount the mounted media before a write run.
Besides true optical drives, libisoburn can also address disk files as input or
output drives. The addresses of the disk files have to be preceded by "stdio:".
Note: xorriso by default prefixes "stdio:" to addresses outside the /dev tree
if they do not lead to an optical drive device file.
For automated and manual tests of xorriso's functionality see file
Result comparison with self produced ISO images
We are quite sure that libisofs produces accurate representations of the disk
files. This opinion is founded on a lot of test burns and checks by a little
test program which compares files from the mounted image with the orignals
on disk. It uses the normal POSIX filesystem calls, i.e. no libburnia stuff.
This program is not installed systemwide but stays in the installation
directory of the libisoburn tarball as test/compare_file . Usually it is
run as -exec payload of a find command. It demands at least three arguments:
The path of the file to compare, the prefix1 to be cut off from path
and the prefix2 which gets prepended afterwards to obtain the path of the
second file to compare.
As further argument there can be -no_ctime which suppresses the comparison
of ctime date stamps.
The exit value is 0 if no difference was detected, non-0 else.
Example: After
xorriso ... -pathspecs on -add /=/original/dir --
mount /media/dvd
cd test
compare tree /media/dvd with tree /original/dir :
find /original/dir -exec ./compare_file '{}' /original/dir /media/dvd ';' \
| less
and vice versa:
find /media/dvd -exec ./compare_file '{}' /media/dvd /original/dir ';' \
| less
