Subject: [Livid-dev] 2.2.x patches

Since the website is obviously out of date, where can I obtain the most
recent patches for the 2.2.x kernel for the UDF filesystem and newer
ioctls (with SCSI support)?

I realize they are in the 2.3.x tree, but I was wondering if there were
2.2.x patches available.

Also, where is the information to grab the CVS tree?

Thanks,
Cory

You know what, I found them on my own. These must be useful to someone
besides me:

dvd-ioctl - http://atv.ne.mediaone.net/linux-dvd/

UDF filesystem - http://trylinux.com/projects/udf/index.html

Update:

The dvd-ioctl patches are now part of the Linux CDROM code and will be
kept up to date from there: http://www.kernel.dk/

I can't tell if DVD SCSI support is in there and I haven't tried it yet. I
did e-mail Jens Axboe, though.

The way the DVD stuff has been designed makes it transparent
to the low level driver. What this means is that the
Uniform layer pretty much doesn't care (and doesn't know)
anything about the underlying bus. So SCSI/ATAPI, it should
work fine either way.

If you take the 2.3 road, your all set. The DVD stuff
and UDF is already in there. For 2.2 you need to grab
the UDF patch and my DVD patch - the ioctl ide-cd only
is what I based my work on and should be considered
obsolete.

If you go back to the UDF page you mentioned in the last post you will see a
link to "Ben Fennema's UDF Page(s)" or something to that effect. That is
where the latest UDF code is generally.
