Re: Not enough ram to validate disk

FFS always required a lot of memory to validate. What's new in 3.1.4 is that it gives an error message. In the past it failed silently and left the partition in read-only state. You shuold not go with a temporary solution (UAE). An FFS partition may require re-validation every now and then and then ...

Re: Filesize and filenames with brackets

Brackets are wildcard characters. The program will list the directory SMBFS0:Temp and find all files which match the wildcard pattern. In this case the only match would be a file called Avengers.Endgame2019. It does not exist, hence the output is empty. If you need to use brackets in file names, you...

Re: Special Characters and Pattern Matching

The escape character can be used to escape wildcard characters from pattern matching. In this thread the issue is different. The file name containing a colon does not take part in pattern matching, it is presented to the handler and the handler can decide whether it is a valid file name or not. In c...

Re: Special Characters and Pattern Matching

I would post a bug report. RAM-Handler should not accept colons in file names when creating new files.

Really? I am quite sure you could use PFS3 in OS4, at least in OS4.0.

Re: CFS/00 filesystem not recognized by OS4.1 FE

CFS means "stupid user didn't read the manual". It simply stands for Custom File System and is the contents of the DosType input field which you should overtype when you add a new file system to the RDB. It should never be used for file systems and partitions. (But it can if you use it in both place...

Re: Problems with 3.1.4 and CD-Rom

I think the problem is the scsi.device of ROM 3.1.4 This has yet to be proven IMHO. Actiually the eide driver should replace scsi.device completely so that the version of the ROM driver does not matter at all. I think you should first try without a CD driver. Remove CD0 and any other CD driver from...

Re: Problems with 3.1.4 and CD-Rom

The second channel of an IDE splitter is not supported by the built-in scsi.device. You have to run the driver software which came with the interface to activate it. In this case it's 4xEIDE.driver.

Re: Exec Bug Report

It's not right for my program which uses the alert function to bring up an alert. ;-) Why not use a requester for that instead? Interesting suggestion because the documentation says that if the requester fails to open, it will revert to an alert. Now we have an infinite loop, don't we. I wouldn't s...
