PKTSETUP(8)                System Manager's Manual               PKTSETUP(8)

NAME         top

       pktsetup - set up and tear down packet device associations

SYNOPSIS         top

       pktsetup packet_device block_device
       pktsetup -d packet_device
       pktsetup -s

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

       Pktsetup returns 0 on success, nonzero on failure.

OPTIONS         top

       -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         top

       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         top

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