Subject: [Livid-dev] Net/Free/OpenBSD

Now that NetBSD supports the linux style of DVD calls, and those will
probably soon be ported to the other BSD's as well; will the project
also attempt to make natively compilable code on these systems as well? 
Or does it already have that view point.


Please reply directly, thanks.

Have NetBSD adopted the Linux DVD ioctl interface?

It is in the process of adding the appropriate calls.

Apparently they can play part of the StarGate DVD using the Livdev software
under the linux compatibility libraries.

http://daily.daemonnews.org has more information about it.

Speaking as the person who wrote the code: yes, NetBSD now supports
the same DVD calls (but not yet FIBMAP) that are in Linux 2.3.24. I'm
working on making the decoder software build natively, but it
currently runs okay[*] under Linux emulation. So far I've tested
Stargate (the original DVD release), A Bug's Life, Alien and Evita.

[*] Actually, the Linux executable I'm using seems to hang
occasionally (under both Linux and NetBSD) while playing audio and
video simultaenously, even with `-ns'. Under NetBSD, I can send
SIGUSR1 to a particular `thread' to wake it up again. (This seems to
kill it under Linux.)

BTW, I've discovered at least one bug in the Linux DVD ioctls...

In dvd_layer: start_sector, end_sector and end_sector_l0 should be
32-bit numbers. The Linux code actually decodes them as 24-bit
numbers and then truncates them to 8 bits. Not very helpful.

			        About USENET

USENET (Users’ Network) was a bulletin board shared among many computer
systems around the world. USENET was a logical network, sitting on top
of several physical networks, among them UUCP, BLICN, BERKNET, X.25, and
the ARPANET. Sites on USENET included many universities, private companies
and research organizations. See USENET Archives.

		       SCO Files Lawsuit Against IBM

March 7, 2003 - The SCO Group filed legal action against IBM in the State 
Court of Utah for trade secrets misappropriation, tortious interference, 
unfair competition and breach of contract. The complaint alleges that IBM 
made concentrated efforts to improperly destroy the economic value of 
UNIX, particularly UNIX on Intel, to benefit IBM's Linux services 
business. See SCO vs IBM.
