Aborted - This project was only ever of mild interest, as I find burning multiple sessions to be quite satisfactory. Below are some rough-ish notes.. I never actually pursued anything for this project.

How to install and configure packet writing support ∞
Rowan Klöti (
It's fairly straightforward, as long as you've compiled a kernel before:
Download kernel source plus matching packet-writing patch.
Unzip and patch kernel - (for 2.4.19):
tar -xzf linux-2.4.19.tar.gz # for Gzipped source tar -xIf linux.tar.bz2 # for source that has been compressed with Bzip2 mv linux-2.4.19 linux
(so that the patch can work correctly, by default, the source tar file unzips to
./linux-[kernelversion], but the pktcdvd patch presumes
bzip2 -d packet-2.4.19-2.patch.bz2 patch -p0 < packet-2.4.19-2.patch
Remember to enable pktcdvd under the 'block devices' menu, and to compile UDF with write support.
Get and compile UDFtools.
pktsetup /dev/cdrom /dev/pktcdvd0 somewhere to your startup scripts. (like rc.local on an RedHat system)
Add an appropriate line to fstab (
Compile and install kernel then
make dep modules modules_install bzImage cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.4.19 cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/bzImage-2.4.19 reboot
- Modify GRUB (
grub.conf) or LILO (
lilo.conf) and then run either
depmodif that has not already been done.
pktsetup is run, you should get some feedback telling whether the module is working or not.
If so, try mounting a CD-R/W disc. (
mount -t udf /dev/pktcdvd /mnt/cdrom as root)
