    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem


    I have been trying to remaster KNOPPIX V3.3, so I created a dir named ISOLINUX and put all relevant files:
    / (root)
     | |
     | - isolinux.bin
     | |
     | - isolinux.cfg
     | |
     | - boot.msg
     | |
     | - F2
     | |
     | - german.kdb
     | |
     | - miniroot.gz
     | |
     | - vmlinuz

    Then I made the filesystem with mkisofs -o knoppix.iso -b isolinux/isolinux.bin -c isolinux/ -no-emul-boot -boot-load-size 4 -boot-info-table .

    After probing all devices it says cannot find KNOPPIX filesystem and drop me to a very limiter shell.
    This is the screen, if anyone know the problem please help me

    Can't find KNOPPIX filesystem, sorry.
    Dropping you to a (very limited) shell.
    Press reset button to quit.
    Additional builtin commands available:
             cat         mount       umount

    I don't know how to help you with that error, but I can give you some advice. Knoppix 3.3 is old and may not be your best choice to remaster. Many programs were upgraded & many security holes were plugged from 3.3 2004/02/16 to Knoppix 3.8.2 2005/05/12. I would recommend that you remaster Knoppix 3.8.2 and not Knoppix 3.9 since it has a filesystem bug.

    It sounds like you are following the wiki document I wrote a HOWTO document about remastering called HOWTO: Remaster the easy way using menu based scripts. There is also an alternative method here

    I hope this helps.

    Thanks for the help, I didn't use the correct parameters in mkisofs, now it works fine
