Subject [jira] [Commented] (CLOUDSTACK-792) make maven use mkisofs or genisoimage depending on what is available
Date Sat, 26 Jan 2013 00:01:12 GMT


Rohit Yadav commented on CLOUDSTACK-792:

DevCloud2 is Debian Wheezy, mkisofs just does not exist on Wheezy [0] I had to compile and
bundle it in [1].

mkisofs and genisoimage are two different tools belonging to different projects (mkisofs belongs
to cdrtools) and while their functionalities are same to make isos, they take different args,
version specific arg changes is exactly the issue I'm concerned with; that's why I said mkisofs
!= genisoimage

Noah, now coming back to the original issue => both should be dealt differently as in different
set of args and build profiles. I'm fine with using both of them interchangeable, I don't
care until it won't break anyone's build environment.

>            Priority: Minor
> Due to differing licensing philosophies between the Debian project and the mkisofs maintainer
the tool will probably never be shipped as part of Debian.
> There is a tool named genisoimage that is command line parameter compatible with mkisofs
and does the same thing.
> It would be useful to have maven pick this difference up and handle both cases.
