I know this doesn't belong on this list, but I can't find any information about it at all, anywhere. First off, if anyone can point me to information in lieu of a direct answer, that would be just as helpful. I've searched Apple's site, google at large and the chaos at the mkisofs homepage.
Here's the problem: FreeBSD server that serves files up for Windows and Mac OS X machines (using Samba and Netatalk). It has a CD burner in it that is used to archive old projects. I have a perl script written that presents a GUI that a user can pick a directory and click a button to burn it to CD. FreeBSD is 4.4, cdrtools is 2.0. Here is the command I'm using to burn the CD: output = `/usr/local/bin/mkisofs -J -r -apple --netatalk -allow-multidot -allow-lowercase $target | /usr/local/bin/cdrecord speed=16 dev=4,0 -`
$target is the directory to burn.
The result is a CD that works fine on FreeBSD and Windows, but on Mac OS X it shows all the files and directorys just fine, but the data is corrupt. It appears as though the resource fork is fine, as images have a viewable thumbnail, but the data itself is unusable.
Has anyone else seen this, or has any thoughts as to what I might be doing wrong. The biggest irritation is that it used to work just fine, and I don't remember changing anything. I can't find any information on Apple's site about problems with CDs, so I'm assuming that I've broken something, but can't imagine what it might be.
