Hi again,

Through pktsetup, /dev/pktcdvd0 doesn't accept to be
bound to a /dev/loop0 device for example.

It claims for a hardware device not a logical one.

Is it normal ?

Thanks,

    pktcdvd sits right on top of the hardware, so you can't use
    it on loop. It's probably theoretically possible to hack it
    and loop to work together, but I don't think anyone has
    tried. The first thing you'd have to do is emulate the
    ioctl's pktcdvd uses to figure out the disc info.
