Description Jiri Moskovcak 2008-07-01 12:58:30 UTC
Spec URL:


This is CDEmu daemon, the userspace daemon part of the userspace-cdemu suite, a.
free, GPL CD/DVD-ROM device emulator for linux.
It receives SCSI commands from kernel module and processes them, passing the.
requested data back to the kernel. Daemon implements the actual virtual device;.
one instance per each device registered by kernel module. It uses libMirage, an.
image access library that is part of userspace-cdemu suite, for the image.
access (e.g. sector reading).

Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-07-01 16:21:04 UTC
As the package this depends on is unacceptable for Fedora, I will close this
ticket.  If it turns out that the kernel module makes it into the upstream
kernel or Fedora's kernel then feel free to reopen this ticket.

Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2009-02-01 09:34:37 UTC
Jiri, did you consider submitting the review to RPM Fusion for the time being? Packages requiring kmods are hosted there.

Comment 3 Jiri Moskovcak 2009-02-01 16:33:02 UTC
Yes, but they want me to convert the kernel modules from dkms to akmod and I don't have time for that now, but I'd like to get cdemu to fedora asap.
