NAMEpktsetup - set up and tear down packet device associations
SYNOPSISpktsetup packet_device block_device
pktsetup -d packet_device
DESCRIPTIONPktsetup 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 STATUSPktsetup returns 0 on success, nonzero on failure.
- -d packet-device
Delete the association between the specified packet-device
and its block device.
Show the current device mapping, one device per line, in the format
name : pktdevid -> blkdevid
(e.g. "0 : 253:0 -> 22:0")
EXAMPLEThe 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
