Exactly as the title says. It isn't installed on my system and apt-get says the package doesn't exist.

Mkisofs is not in the Mint default repositories. You could try mintconstructor - available in Package Manager. It is what the Mint developers use to build .iso files for Mint.

Never used it and probably never will, so I know nothing about obtaining it. You could try Google or Yahoo search.

The place I got it from is the grml repository.

http://deb.grml.org/pool/main/

Debian has a long running squabble with the developer.

mkisofs has been replaced by genisoimage. If you have an app looking for it (like mintconstructor) you can create a symbolic link for it.

Code: Select all
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/genisoimage /usr/bin/mkisofs
