NAME

pktsetup - set up and tear down packet device associations

 

SYNOPSIS

pktsetup packet_device block_device
pktsetup -d packet_device  

DESCRIPTION

Pktsetup is used to associate packet devices with CD or DVD block devices, so that the packet device can then be mounted and potentially used as a read/write filesystem. This requires kernel support for the packet device, and the UDF filesystem.

See: http://packet-cd.sourceforge.net/

 

EXIT STATUS

Pktsetup returns 0 on success, nonzero on failure.

 

OPTIONS

-d packet-device
Delete the association between the specified packet-device and its block device.

 

EXAMPLE

The following commands provide an example of using the packet device.
cdrwtool -d /dev/sr0 -q pktsetup /dev/pktcdvd0 /dev/sr0 mount -t udf /dev/pktcdvd0 /mnt ... umount /dev/pktcdvd0 pktsetup -d /dev/pktcdvd0

 

FILES

/dev/pktcdvd0,/dev/pktcdvd1,...  CD/DVD packet devices (block major=97)
