DiskImage (solved)

Post by sundown »

Tried to install DiskImage v53.2 on my x1000, if I click on System/DiskImageGUI, I get a blank window & a lockup soon after. DiskImage works fine on my SAM440.
Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem & fixed it.

Well, I used it a few days ago and just now checked it and the version number (53.2) and it is working fine. I hate to ask, since you are a beta tester, have you checked your debug output on your serial port?

Hello,
DiskimageGUI uses AISS for the gadget imagery, maybe it is the reason. Did you install AISS, on your X1000?

Xavier.

I have AISS v4.12 installed & serial output doesn't tell me much, it does point to classes/gadgets, but FC & the SAM440 compare the same file wise. Other x1000 users say it works fine for them, but as long as it works on the SAM, I'm ok, just hate a mystery I can't solve. :-D

Just booted into the CLI to test with no startup files, still locks the system up, this is on a clean FC install.

Same here.

I don't see this freeze on my X1000, neither under the FC public nor the beta system.

What filesystem are you using on your system partition? If it is FFS, that might be part of the reason. AISS puts an extreme number of files into one directory, which is something FFS really dislikes. I use SFS on mine (both).

Best regards,

Niels

SFS/00 for my boot partitions.

Another update, installed & booted update 5, DiskImage gave a load error this time, updated AISS & DiskImageGUI opened & worked. Now I just need to find out why it won't on my update 6 partition. :-D

I've got a freezing problem with DiskImage once : it was when using a specific GUI theme for workbench.

The theme wasn't the problem, but a great hint. :-D

Perfs/env-archive/sys/gui.prefs was causing the problem, never figured out what setting, so just deleted it & set GUI prefs up again, DiskImageGUI now starts up & works. :-D

You don't happen to have a backup of the gui.prefs as it was when you had the problem? It could be useful to find out whether there is a bug in either DiskImageGUI or Intuition etc., or at least which particular setting causes the problem.

Didn't think to save the bad file, but I just checked my backup CD, copied the gui.perfs over & DiskImageGUI gives me a blank window, so I do have a copy that fails. I did spend some time trying to find a bad setting, ended up thinking the file itself was just corrupt. I'll send you the file using your email address from the ML.
