Subject: [Livid-dev] Status..

Ok.. the project is not dead, I havn't abandon it.. I had to move back to
school and the servers had some more issues.. I am working with the guys
from VA and we will get it worked out in the short term. 

On another note. Watch the site for a complete overhaul, news and
updates. 

For those of you that don't know, we got the DVD ioctrls into the kernel
tree! They are in the latest 2.3.x kernels. It will be much nicer to be
working from a stable branch (2.4.x) on this stuff.

Goals:
Merge the video capture project. That will bring more developers to help
out with that.

It is time to start getting the zoran driver built. I just started
classes and am a little pressed on time to get up to speed on V4L and the
docs. I'd like to get everyone interested in the Zoran driver together
and let them run with it and I'll jump in later this semester. A good
start would probably be with the SMPEG code and just start implementing
functions into hardware.

Glad to see you're still hanging in there :)

For some information for the list:
I grabbed the latest 2.2.x tree patches from www.kernel.dk
I grabbed the latest css code I could locate (Thanks David)

Built up a new kernel, made a few changes to the css code (key1 and key2
to key) and compiled that up. 

I have two machines here. One with a ide DVD drive and the other with a
SCSI dvd drive. The IDE is a Toshiba 6x (can't recall the model off the
top of my head, sorry). The SCSI is a 6x 303S. 

Authentication failed on the IDE drive.
Authentication passed on the SCSI drive (for both disc key and a few title
keys).

However... I ran my IFO parser on the VTS_02_0.IFO file on "The Siege" and
the data is mangled. If the authentication isn't done before trying the
parse a whole slew of sense key errors from the cd-rom kernel code get
thrown, so apparently something is happening right in the css code. I'm
not sure what the rest of the puzzle is. I'm going to get the udf code
next and try using that for mounting instead of the iso9660 filesystem.
Perhaps that will work.
