A program to convert and edit ISO files?

anyone know of a program similar to winiso, that can load .bin/.cue and .iso files (or any others), and edit and save them??

im dying to be able to do this inside linux, _without_ having to use something like bchunk to convert them and then mounting it on a loopback and editing it that way..

thanks

http://kiso.sourceforge.net/
There are also 3-4 more projects dealing with disk images, which are horribly buggy- but this doesn't mean that kiso is bugfree, quite the opposite.
Winiso under windoze was also one of the kind, it ALWAYS managed to screw any bootable disk image it edited beyond repair.
By the way ISO images are mounted (read only) natively in Linux at any directory you choose.

Re: A program to convert and edit ISO files?

if anyone's interested, this guy is trying to make a GTK based iso editor for his project at uni this year..

give him some support to spur him on, and if you have any information on where / how to do things, pass it on..

linux really needs a GTK based iso editor

Re: A program to convert and edit ISO files?

Once you've downloaded an ISO Image you can mount it as a loopback device. This will give you access to the files in the ISO without you having to burn it to a CDROM first. For example if you wanted to mount filename.iso to /mnt/iso you would run the following command:

mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso.

Copy the data elsewhere, edit it, and create a new iso using mkisofs:

mkisofs -o <newisoname> <path to elsewhere>

.
