Replacing broken genisoimage

Postby solar1951 on Thu Sep 04, 2008 11:43 am

There has been some discussions in Ubuntu forums relating to a problem with dvd burnt under Hardy will not play in some home players and also windows machines.
If you are having this problem in Elyssa then genisoimage could be the problem.
The version shipped with Gutsy was OK so you need to downgrade and install the slightly earlier package genisoimage (9:1.1.6-1ubuntu3)

This can be achieved as follows
Download the release for Gutsy http://packages.ubuntu.com/gutsy/genisoimage
Open a terminal in the download directory and
Code: Select all
sudo dpkg --force-downgrade -i genisoimage_1.1.6-1ubuntu3_i386.deb


You will need to go into synaptic, highlight genisoimage and go to the Package menu and "lock the package" to prevent it being upgraded.

Thanks to bedege on the Ubuntu forums for this info, thought I would pass it on.

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

My Thanks to you Husse, I had missed that particular discussion. Perhaps link it to multimedia section somehow :?:
