CDEmu packages for Fedora.
Enable this COPR repository:
dnf copr enable rok/cdemu
Make sure kernel development package is installed
dnf install kernel-devel
Also, make sure that you have
kernel-devel package installed for the current version of running kernel. If you just updated your system and that included kernel update, you might want to reboot the system so that the latest kernel (with its corresponding
kernel-devel package) is in use. Otherwise, in some circumstances, the
vhba module will not be built when the CDEmu packages are installed, but rather on the next reboot.
Install the daemon and clients:
dnf install cdemu-daemon dnf install cdemu-client dnf install gcdemu
Installing the daemon package should pull in all dependencies, such as libmirage and vhba packages.
Load the kernel module:
akmods systemctl restart systemd-modules-load.service
The kernel module should be automatically reloaded on reboot.
If everything is set up correctly, the following command should auto-start the daemon and query its status:
which should return
Devices' status: DEV LOADED FILENAME 0 0
NOTE: Missing gCDEmu tray icon
If gcdemu fails to display its tray icon and your desktop environment supports tray icons (natively or via an extension), you might want to check that you have
libappindicator-gtk3 (or alternatively,
libindicator) package installed. If neither AppIndicator library is available, the application falls back to the deprecated GtkStatusIcon, which is unsupported under many modern desktop environments (and does not work at all under Wayland).
The following unofficial repositories are provided as-is by owner of this project. Contact the owner directly for bugs or issues (IE: not bugzilla).
