I need to modify the first installation image for a headless installation of Freebsd6.2. The file in question is:
6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso Thanks to a helpful member of the list, I found out that tar works on unpacking these images and it mostly does on this one, but there is a complaint I get from tar that I haven't found on other images. If I do a tar tvf 6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso Here is what happens while looking at the contents list: 0 44232 Jan 12 2007 RELNOTES.HTM lr-xr-xr-x 1 0 0 0 Jan 12 2007 stand -> /rescue lr-xr-xr-x 1 0 0 0 Jan 12 2007 sys -> usr/src/systar: Ignoring out-of-order file -r--r--r-- 1 0 0 22916 Jan 12 2007 RELNOTES.TXT It appears that the entire image unpacks except for the ignored file. If one tries the extraction with tar xf 6.2-RELEASE-i386-disc1.iso The complaint about the out-of-order file is the only indication that anything is wrong. In looking at the man page for tar, nothing jumps out at me as to how to end up with the proper file structure that mkisofs can put back in to an image to put on a CDROM. My thanks for any suggestions as I may be needing to do one of these installs in a day or so and it would be nice to know that all the image is there.
