Ubuntu Quicktip - Converting Mac .dmg images into .iso images

Filed under

I recently came across a handy script that allows you to convert a Mac OSX or Apple’s iPod (iPod firmware generated images) to standard .iso files.

You’ll need to have perl installed. Also, you may need to add an additional dependency in the form of a perl zlib module. So, here’s how to install it:

sudo apt-get install libcompress-zlib-perl

cd /usr/bin

sudo wget http://www.blinkenlights.ch/gnupod/dmg2iso.pl

Now, in my Ubuntu install I had to make one change to the dmg2iso.pl script.

Full Story.
