mkudf does not seem to be part of any packages.
You have UDF support in your kernel, but the tools are missing.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to create a UDF filesystem.
Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2001-04-17 13:33:28 EDT
UDF read is supported, write is very very experimental.
Anyway, mkudf isn't part of the kernel package ; reassigning
Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2001-07-18 14:01:16 EDT
Our kernel package doesn't appear to have the headers that udf-tools wants in
order to compile, and even when I tried to hack around this, I discovered that
some of the distributed source files were empty. It appears that UDF support in
the kernel and out is not mature enough to support udf-tools currently. Please
reopen this report once things are closer to widespread usability.
Comment 3 Martin Lichtin 2001-07-18 17:46:19 EDT
I think there might be a misunderstanding.
The tools compile ok.

Download http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/linux-udf/udf-,
unpack, run "make tools" and there will be a number of tools available:


Obviously, not all tools need to be installed, but mkudf, chkudf, cdrwtool,
should be part of the distribution.

Also, a device file is created: /dev/pktcdvd0
