Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS or FFS)

What do you think? Good one. What I found myself, which was annoying, is that parted separates the device from the partitions. So you need to grep for Disk and then separate each device listed. Then iterate through the list and send it to parted to give a partition list for that. Take the result an...

Re: Kernel 5.7

I didn't rebuild initrd.gz from scratch. But i modify it - I simply added modules from Xeno's 5.5.11 kernel to original initrg.gz: /lib/modules/5.5.11_A-EON_X1000_Nemo/* Well I didn't mean a rebuild from scratch. Just a rebuild based on modifying it. For myself I prefer to work on the KISS principl...

Re: Kernel 5.7

Yes, that's correct. It takes about 10 minutes to compile a kernel. I use ubuntu MATE 18.04 LTS x86_64 (GCC 7.4.0) for cross compiling. Thanks very much for the guide. I'm relieved I don't have to compile a ppc gcc like for OS4. The most powerful machine I have is an i5 laptop so I don't know about...

Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS or FFS)

Hypex, Thanks a lot for your answer. You're welcome. Funny enough, I only know this info because I was recently experimenting with it, and trying to work out how to detect Amiga device points from a script. I didn't think to post my findings until I saw your thread. I think I can figure out the ID ...

Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS or FFS)

I can only see my Amiga partitions including the labels (DH1, BDH0 etc) with parted . Do you know another tool for displaying the Amiga partitions with partition labels? There is amiga-disk. It can read an RDB and detect up to DOS6. But I can't see it display labels. Parted can display the labels o...

Re: Kernel 5.7

Hi All, Here is the RC5-2 of kernel 5.7 for testing. Hello. Just out of interest. How are you building these kernels? How long does it take? Cross compilation on fast PC? I tried to compile an XE kernel a number of years back on my X1000, I don't know how, but I distinctly remember it taking only 1...

Re: Kernel 5.7

Continue without modules doesn't work with new installer. But you help me - I put the modules to initrg.gz only (which is not works). I will try add them to .iso also. So you were able to modify and rebuild the initrd.gz okay? If it's of any help, I needed to use the following list of modules, when...

You tried Arctic Fox for 64-bit userlands (PPC64). Fienix has a 32-bit userland.
I got the link here somewhere. It looked like the latest. Think we need an A1XDepot. :-)

But I wonder, if the kernel is 64-bit, why Fienix running in 32-bit?

Re: Amiga Fast File System (AFFS or FFS)

Hi. I've been doing some FFS testing lately as it happens. I actually setup a DOS3 volume years ago to share data between OS4 and Linux. But I tested writing to a DOS3 volume and it was slow. Generally I find AFFS support is built in A1 kernels and don't recall having any major issues. However I hav...
