Subject: [Livid-dev] CSS decryption

Both the lists have calmed down considerably in the last couple 
weeks. I was wondering if there was any work being done still to 
reverse engineer the CSS decryption routines. Last I heard the 
assembly had been converted to C and that it had broken in the 
process (and that that was being worked on), but I haven't seen 
anything about it since. Anyone know whats happening with it or 
what software was being RE'd?

Openprojects went down last week and they are still rebuilding. The css
code has been converted to C and it has been tested to work. 

The cdrom patch has been the focus of recent work. The goal is to get the
DVD ioctrl's in kernel 2.4, and it looks like it is going to happen.

Yes, it has happened. The 2.3.13 kernel contains much of it,
minus the latest fixes. But I'll update it and keep the
kernel current.
