NAME

pktsetup - set up and tear down packet device associations

 

SYNOPSIS

pktsetup packet_device block_device
pktsetup -d packet_device
pktsetup -s  

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: HOWTO.udf (in the udftools documents directory)

 

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.

-s
Show the current device mapping, one device per line, in the format
 name : pktdevid -> blkdevid
(e.g. "0 : 253:0 -> 22:0")

 

EXAMPLE

The following commands provide an example of using the packet device.
cdrwtool -d /dev/sr0 -q pktsetup 0 /dev/sr0 mount -t udf /dev/pktcdvd0 /mnt ... umount /dev/pktcdvd0 pktsetup -d 0

 

FILES

/dev/pktcdvd0,/dev/pktcdvd1,...  CD/DVD packet devices
