    mkisofs/growisofs question

    I'm using growisofs in a perl script to create backups. As you may know, growisofs frontends mkisofs to burn the disc.

    I have everything working, but I have a question that I can't seem to find the answer to.

    I'm using graft points to put the files from a directory into a similarly named directory on the DVD. I have a directory or two that won't fit onto a DVD. Is there a way to specify which files should go into a graft point? The only option that I can see is the -m option which is a wildcard for files that should be EXCLUDED from the disc. Also, the usage of -m seems to be applied disc-wide, so if there so happened to be a file of the same name in another directory, it would be excluded.

    In short, I'm looking for a way that you can specify the files to copy for a particular graft point.

    Is there a good Linux form out there that I could post this question?

    Thanks!!

    mkisofs/growisofs question

    I don't know the tools myself, but I'm sure the forums of a Linux
    distribution might help, and as this won't be distribution-specific I
    suspect you could ask on any of them.

    In my experience the "Portage and Programming" forum for Gentoo is
    inhabited by pretty technical chaps - that might be a good place to
    start (http://forums.gentoo.org/). As is the nature of these things
    they'll probably also suggest a different way of doing your backups,
    which may or may not be what you're after!
