CDemu enables you to use disc images that contain more than a standard ISO-9660 filesystem, like .bin/.cue, .nrg, or .ccd images. It's needed only because Template:Codeline can only directly handle .iso disc images, which can only contain a single filesystem, but many CDs have multiple sessions, mixed data/audio tracks, etc. In short you can mount nearly any kind of image file with ease using cdemu.


# pacman -S cdemu-client

This will install the dependencies as well.


To configure CDemu, edit Template:Filename. You can change the number of drives to emulate, the control device, and which audio backend to use.

Starting cdemu

If you want to start cdemu at boot add cdemud to the daemons section in Template:Filename.

you can also start cdemu manually by running 'Template:Filename start' as root.

In both cases cdemud loads the necessary modules.

To Run

on archlinux cdemu is configured to use the DBus system bus, the command however defaults to the DBus session bus.

either replace cdemu in the below examples with 'cdemu -b system' or make an alias.

i added this alias to .bashrc of the users that need to run cdemu : alias cdemu='cdemu -b system'
