Creates an image of an ISO9660 filesystem

The genisoimage program is used as a pre-mastering program; i.e., it generates the ISO9660 filesystem. Genisoimage takes a snapshot of a given directory tree and generates a binary image of the tree which will correspond to an ISO9660 filesystem when written to a block device. Genisoimage is used for writing CD-ROMs, and includes support for creating bootable El Torito CD-ROMs.

Install the genisoimage package if you need a program for writing CD-ROMs.

Package version:1.1.9

The alpha boot support allows you to create a bootable CD which will
work with DEC/Compaq/HP Alpha machines, for example bootable
installation media.

The method used for this is the same as in aboot, the bootloader for
Linux on Alpha, and works with SRM firmware. See the SRM Firmware
