View Full Version : How to label cd's from command line?

26th March 2006, 11:22 PM
Now that FC5 mounts cd's in /media by their "label" (if that is the correct term) instead of a mount point, how do I set that label l when I create a cd using command line methods? Is it set in mkisofs or in cdrecord?

from the mkisofs manpage:

-V volid
Specifies the volume ID (volume name or label) to be written
into the master block. There is space on the disc for 32 char-
acters of information. This parameter can also be set in the
file .mkisofsrc with VOLI=id. If specified in both places, the
command line version is used. Note that if you assign a volume
ID, this is the name that will be used as the mount point used
by the Solaris volume management system and the name that is
assigned to the disc on a Microsoft Win32 or Apple Mac platform.

Thank you. ( I'll name a volume after you! )
