 xorriso -as mkisofs \

Code: Select all

xorriso -as mkisofs "$workdir" \
and removing the reference to $workdir in the line starting with -b

Re: Bash script to build .iso failing

Kadaitcha Man, thanks for the reply. I've double checked the location several times. I even copied the file to a different location and used the actual location in the script instead of using the variable.

Re: How to edit fstab from a tty1 prompt

@rene thanks for the effort but it didn't work. The UUID has changed and I get the following message. :mount: /: can't find UUID=xxxxx-xxx-xxxx-xxxxx

Is there a way to mount a partition by identifying the UUID? I got the new id by running blkid.

Re: How to edit fstab from a tty1 prompt

Thanks for the reply, Rick. I'm the only user on this machine. For some reason, the entire partition is now read only so can't edit anything. I'm running 19.3 and set a root password so I may try logging into tty1 as root and changing permissions. Note: I found that I can boot from a legacy USB, but...

Per subject, I'm unable to post any information about the machine. It is a refurbished Thinkpad T450 and was working fine earlier today. I've run all available test thru the bios and all came out OK. I was able to run boot repair disk but that only made things worse. Now can't even boot from USB. I'...

Re: Using Linux Mint and Unsupported Windows 7

As long as you never connect to the 'net from Win7 you are safe. Smart move to disconnect ethernet cable when in Win7 but you also have to disable wireless.

Hope this helps,
