Re: Direct CDRW writing
Hi Leo and others

Thanks for your advice.

I tried "make config" twice followed by "make dep" but could not
discover "CONFIG_CDROM_PKTCDVD". After finish neither could I locate
"pktcdvd.o"

I am running "kernel-.2.4.18-17.8.0" but I use "packet-2.4.19-2.patch".
Is there any conflict???

Furthermore to reconfig kernel is not an easy job taking me 1 or 2 hours
to complete. Is there any short-cut to find the item/items I need to
make change ignoring others. Or I have to answer all questions. Some
of the questions are unknown to me, I only chose the first priority as
advised by the '?'

Thanks

Stephen Liu
