Missing genisoimage in EasyOS

June 21, 2020 — BarryK

Easy has the 'cdrtools' package, which has  the 'mkisofs' utility. The 'cdrkit' package was a fork of cdrtools, with different names for utilities, and has 'genisoimage' instead of 'mkisofs'.

Some Debian packages expect 'genisoimage', so we could just put it as a symlink, as suggested by rcrsn51 (forum name), or a script that calls mkisofs, suggested by OscarTalks:

I went for the script. I took off the "$@" quotes around the $@, as that seems wrong syntax.
