Re: Burning OS X .dmg disk images...

 Does anyone know of how to burn Mac OS X .dmg images under FBSD?

 I have .dmg files from an OSX system (10.3.x) that I want to convert to
 ISO images (if necessary) for burning to cd/dvd. I can't find anything
 in the list archives about this.
Use this converter and burn the ISO file:

Add the .dmg files to an ISO archive using mkisofs from sysutils/cdrtools, and 
burn them using burncd or sysutils/dvd+rw-tools.

Apple's .dmg format isn't recognized by anything on FreeBSD that I know of; 
people who want to make an archive of files available in a cross-platform 
fashion from a Mac ought to use tar, pax, or maybe zip/jar.

[ A Mac can open a .dmg file from an ISO CD-ROM just fine, of course. ]

On MacOS X use the command line utility hdiutil (see man page) to 
convert to .iso, shoot that file over to FreeBSD and then use either 
burncd or cdrecord.

Open a Terminal window on MacOS to get a shell then do something like 
this:

% hdiutil makehybrid -o my.iso my.dmg -hfs -joliet -iso
For some reason the above with -hfs generates a .iso file which mounts 
when double-clicked but an icon does not appear on the desktop. It may 
have something to do with the particular .dmg file I used. However 
double-clicking the .dmg file appears on the desktop as expected. 
Remove -hfs from the hdiutil command and the default appearance is 
different than .dmg but otherwise produced a desktop icon for the 
mounted volume as expected.

Normally MacOS X mounts .iso files as a volume when one double-clicks, 
and the icon appears on the desktop. But not with the .dmg file 
converted to .iso with -hfs that I was playing with just now. It 
mounted but without the desktop icon. Was listed in /Volumes/ and with 
df(1). Had to use hdiutil detach /dev/disk6s2 to get rid of it. Or 
logout/login did the trick as well.
