Re: Collapsing DVD and CD torrents into one



Fedora would distribute one piece of media.  You would either boot from
it and install, or you would mount it (loop back) and burn the CD sized
isos held within, to boot from those and install from them.

Bonus points if you can figure out how to make the DVD multi-session so that all the files from inside the embedded CD iso's show up as regular files in the DVD :-)

Using multi-session recording of the DVD is not necessary.  As long as
you require loop-back mount, then you've got shell, cat, and dd.  So the
CD images can be constructed from files within a single-session DVD
by using one shell script per output platter:

     cat <leading-sectors> <directory-info> <file-list> \
  |  dd bs=32k of=/dev/cdrw

where <directory-info> is a file containing the directory portion of
the appropriate mkisofs.
