    remaster scripts require boot.img - none on Knoppix 3.6

    I am having an issue with my Knoppix 3.6 CD not having a boot.img file to create the ISO for the remaster. Almost all of the HowTo docs I have seen have the last mkisofs command with the -b KNOPPIX/boot.img option. Is it strange that my 3.6 CD doesn't have it anywhere?

    If it isn't required, could someone post the complete syntax for the final mkisofs command to create the ISO without the boot.img file? Or can I use one that someone sends me?

    Many thanks.

    This is the command I was trying to use:
    mkisofs -pad -l -r -J -v -V "KNOPPIX" -b KNOPPIX/boot.img -c KNOPPIX/boot.cat -hide-rr-moved -o /knoppix_new.iso /mnt/hdb1/master

    mkisofs: Uh oh, I can't find the boot image 'KNOPPIX/boot.img' !


    New command tried:
    mkisofs -J -T -v -r -no emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table -joliet-long -b boot/isoliux/isolinux.bin -c

    mkisofs: Joliet tree sort failed. The -joliet-long switch may help you.

    1.) At the top of this page, click on "Documentation"
    2.) Scroll down to the bottom & find Knoppix Remastering Howto --Eadz 19:09, 16 Dec 2004 (EST)
    3.) Do a CTRL-F Find and search for:
    if all went well
    4.) Notice that it explains two different command lines based on what version of Knoppix you are remastering.

    I hope this helps. Happy remastering.
