NetBSD® makefs(8) creates a file system image from a directory tree without the need for superuser privileges. The MirBSD version fixes ECMA 119, SUSP and RRIP (Rock Ridge) compliance and adds features. Supported target filesystem types are: cd9660 ISO 9660 (ECMA 119) compatible filesystem images, with Rock Ridge, El Torito, and other features ffs 4.2FFS, the BSD Fast Filesystem, also known as UFS1; UFS2 (with "-o version=2") The images created can be of a fixed (predefined) size, given on the command line, or sized automatically. Permission bits are taken from the source directory tree but may be overridden using an mtree file.
