The files with long names in cdrom are being truncated in hpux 11.11.

Hi,

I have mounted the cdrom in hpux 11.11, the files with long names are being truncated to small names, this is causing my script to end with errors as its looking for original file. Is there any way so that these files with long names are not truncated?

Thanks
Karthik

Hi Karthik,

The best way to get an answer to a problem on the forums is to present a detailed problem statement... in this case:

- You haven't told us what format the cdrom was originally in (where did it come from?)

- You haven't told us what command you used to mount it

However we can hazard a guess... With this being 11.11, you should first make sure you have PHCO_25841 installed which adds RockRidge extensions to standard ISO-9660 CD-ROM filesystems.

Assuming you have, try mounting the CD-ROM with "-o rr" on the mount command.

Hi Duncan,

Please apologize me for not providing the enough details of the issue.

Thank you very much for providing the solution, it solved my problem.

Is '-o rr' read only?

Thanks

No "-o rr" means use the RockRidge extensions.

man mount_cdfs

For details.
