Welcome - Instalinux is Broken Right Now!

You may have noticed that the site is broken. At the end of the process, Instalinux takes your information, puts it in with the base image, and then uses a program called "mkisofs" to build the final ISO. That program does not exist on the system that I use for hosting. I have gotten around that all these years by using a compiled copy of the program. However, it looks like the supporting libraries on the hosting system have gone away, so mkisofs doesn't work any more. So yeah - broken!

Here's how you can help: If you know where I can find a copy of mkisofs or genisoimage that is statically linked - or if you can build one that will run on Dreamhost's serves - that would be a huge help. I could probably do it, but I don't have much free time these days.

In the mean time, I'm really sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks for all of your encouraging emails over the years! -- Chris
