I'm on the mailing list of packetwriting to!
It seems everything is UP AND RUNNING! both new modules are running.
/dev/pktcdvd /dev/pktcdvdO exist!
Problem is here in the parallel land!
pg0 is the only thing wich let you writing to if you have a parallel
pcd act as a cdrom and doesn't allow writing. problem is you need to
mount the /dev/pg0 device wich is not possible according to the manual
what can i do?
