    compression only takes a few seconds

    i am trying to remaster knoppix 3.6. it only takes afew seconds for the compression and when i burn the iso to the cd, it boots then fails. i have been using the how to. please can someone help as i have been trying to do this for some days. the code is :

    mkisofs -R -U -V "KNOPPIX.net filesystem" -publisher "KNOPPIX www.knoppix.net" \
    -hide-rr-moved -cache-inodes -no-bak -pad /mnt/hda1/knx/source/KNOPPIX \
    | nice -5 /usr/bin/create_compressed_fs - 65536 > /mnt/hda1/knx/master/KNOPPIX/KNOPPIX


    the how to is from :

    http://www.knoppix.net/wiki/Knoppix_Remastering_Howto

    i have done exactly what it says in the 'how to'
    thanks

    the \ characters are just to seperate lines in the howto... if you dont include those it should work. type the instruction out like you have it on one line in terminal and just dont put the \ characters.

    I had the same problem; as I remember, I simply made a mistake in this command and *.iso file had about 4 mb

    "\" are just end-of-line markers, so command can be wrote in more than one line

    I had the same problem.

    It should really say in the guide for linux beginners to remove those \

    cause I just copied pasted the text
