    iso9660 filesystem files editing and remaking


    I have an iso 9660 filesystem image...in which I need to edit

    just one file. I copied the files using "cp -avf"...when the files

    reach the destination..the sizes increase..that must be due to the

    increase in block size...OK...but when I remake the iso9660

    filesystem using "mkisofs -J -U -r " the sizes of the files remain

    the same..and just a small editing in a file leads to a blow up of

    about
    100M in the newly created iso image..I think I'm

    missing some option there...but I'm not able to find out in the manpage

    and google search..Some quick help would be greatly

    appreciated as I'm STUCK!!

    My host filesystem is ext3..if that's required

    Hi and welcome.

    "Isomaster" can edit an ISO directly.
    You didnt say, which distribution you use, but fedora has it in its default repos.
    You must always face the curtain with a bow.
