long files names truncated when mounting a CD

hi,

I am mounting a CD, Which has Long file names and the Case sensitivity. When I mount, the case sensistivity is maintained but the length of the file names are truncated to xxx.*

can any one help me in solving the problem.

For your information the CD is created using mkisofs command in solaris for making an iso9660 compatible CD. This problem is not arising in Solaris and AIX, Please help
tnx

hi,

This gives me Case sensistivity but I need that, no truncation of Long file names.

Read http://forums.itrc.hp.com/cm/QuestionAnswer/1,,0x98aaba808b46d611abda0090277a778c,00.html to find wich patches to install and never ever worry about it from then on :)

AIX and Solaris have this built in for ages.

Re: long files names truncated when mounting a CD

Hi Senthil,

You should specify the FS type as follows:

#mount -F cdfs -o cdcase /dev/dsk/cxtydz /cdrom

If that doesn't work your only options are using the pfs_mount setup & commands OR obtain the new patches that obsolete the pfs_mount routines.

HTH,
Jeff
