Yep that’s right - the mkisofs utility can’t transfer the “license” property
into the iso image - so the license utility will not work on “playback”.
Turns out that old style licenses newer than 4.23A can be converted to new
style licenses (through QSSL intervention). Unfortunately, our client’s
licenses are of 4.22A vintage so conversion is not possible.

licenses does not work. Since our CD build process uses a boot floppy
anyway, putting them there was not a problem.

A client of ours has been building their QNX4 target drives using a
drive from which the appropriate contents are transferred using a bunch
scripts. They have recently decided to change to a CD based installation
procedure because the drives in the new platforms they are using are
somewhat difficult to get to. I have been using mkisofs to create the CD
images, but have run into a problem because they are using old-style
licenses. In the master drive scenario, “license” was used to transfer
licenses to the target drive, but this is clearly not an option using
Are they stuck using a floppy as a source of the licenses, as an adjunct
the CD, or is there some other way to get around this issue ? Other
this newsgroup imply that the old style licenses cannot be converted to
