pktsetup - set up and tear down packet device associations
pktsetup packet_device block_device pktsetup -d packet_device pktsetup -s
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)
Pktsetup returns 0 on success, nonzero on failure.
-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")
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
/dev/pktcdvd0,/dev/pktcdvd1,... CD/DVD packet devices
