Re: blockid error

I use C:smartctl to check the health of my HDs, if it shows errors, then its a good sign it needs replacing soon. Linux has a simular command.
Each HD has its own # in the chain, I have 2, 0 & 2.

c:smartctl -a sb600sata.device:<sata drive #>

Re: blockid error

You need to copy all the data from that partition before you lose it, The only fix is a re-format. Others have had this problem with SFS, very rare, but there is no other fix but a re-rormat & copy back.

Re: Power Button

In the AOSFE-Up1 ChangeLog I spotted: Exec 53.89 NEW o AmigaOne X1000 can now be switched off by pressing the case power button shortly. No need for holding it down for several seconds anymore; I thought it might be fun to see this work. Is there something I need to do to enable it? Thanks, Tom Sho...

Re: Soft reboot hangs on FE upd 1

Wouldn't work here - mine's called BOOT: xenic wrote: I think all the complete X1000 systems sold by AmigaKit had the BDH0: partition. I think it's a case where the installation and naming of the small FFS partition should have been standard; with the possible exception of beta testers who have spe...

Re: ubuntu h/w acceleration

I have a 4850, no idea if it does h/w accel, & not about to hunt down an old card just for linux. But this thread could be useful if others posted what gfx cards do h/w accel in linux. A list of cards & a how to would make for a nice source of information all in one place.

I have 16.04 working, but its dog slow on my x1k. GLXGears gives me 114 FPS & FireFox is almost un-usable. Would be nice to have step by step instructions on how to get h/w aceleration going with different gfx cards, mine is a Southern Island 970. If this can be done, pllease do not make any ass...

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

ISO downloaded & burned, boots to the desktop on my x1000 with r9 270 card.
I gather the installer's not working. I've seen the install choke before with another ubuntu archive, not finding the HD.

Re: ubuntu MATE 16.04.1 Live DVD

I've been downloading the new iso all day & still only half done. With the problems reported so far, will another iso come out? I will stop my dl just in case. Ken Sorry, that the download takes so long. I hope you can download and test it. I could try to upload it to a free hoster or another u...
