create a cd9660 or ffs file system image from a directory tree

NetBSD® makefs(8) creates a file system image from a directory tree without the need for superuser privileges. The MirBSD version fixes ECMA 119, SUSP and RRIP (Rock Ridge) compliance and adds features.

Supported target filesystem types are:

cd9660 ISO 9660 (ECMA 119) compatible filesystem images, with Rock Ridge, El Torito, and other features ffs 4.2FFS, the BSD Fast Filesystem, also known as UFS1; UFS2 (with "-o version=2")

The images created can be of a fixed (predefined) size, given on the command line, or sized automatically. Permission bits are taken from the source directory tree but may be overridden using an mtree file.

This utility does not currently support Large Files (2 GiB or more).

Package version:20100306-3



• Upstream development is in both NetBSD® and MirBSD. The latter
  keeps NetBSD®’s code in a vendor branch, with periodic import
  and merge cycles, and applies fixes (especially to cd9660 code)
  as well as more features (such as support for boot-info-table
  and GRUB 2 UUIDs) to the MAIN branch, which is what we take.
  It also contains enough glue code to make it build on Debian
