Looking at the man page for mkisofs I see the following:
-r ....................... If any of the special mode bits are set,
clear them, because file locks are not useful on a read-only
file system, ...
Just curious: What the bleep have file mode bits got to do with file locking?
I'm personally not aware of any connection between the two.
Somebody please enlighten me.
