ext2 install

Postby strampke » Sat Feb 19, 2011 6:13 am

I had some trouble with to the ext2 hd install (0.4.3)
Now it is working BUT

hd is installed read only and at boor it will be Remounted read/write
why and is this the normal procedure

Nat and firewalling is enabled doesn't give a 'done' but a 'memory fault'
fd operation is flawless but hd....

Help is appreciated.

PS Using a Celeron I changed from a 686 kernel to a 586 kernel and then the memory fault is absent.

All of the 0.4.x systems do this. Previously the ext2 addon package just used the ext2 partition regardless of it's condition and did not have the ability to check to make certain there were no problems or even the capability to fix the problem without manual input. The 0.4.x system automatically checks the drive at each boot to make certain and the only way to check a boot drive is to mount it read-only and then after the check it re-mounts it to read-write. If you really want to see how the new system works, just push the power button to shut it off once and when it boots it will scan the drive for errors.

I am unsure about the memory fault problem. I have seen it myself, but never figured out exactly what it came from because it has never been consistent. But I suspect it has to do with a background operation of restarting the firewall a second time due to the Internet connection.
If you are afraid that you might make a mistake. The chances are high that you will never learn anything.

Thanks Lightning,
I think it was the 686 vs 586 type kernel.

I did some speed tests with many files copying to Samba on the Celeron 466 Freesco 0.4.3 set compared to copying to a PIV 2100 with normal windows XP NTFS
Uploading with /v option PIV 46 Celeron 75 uploading straight PIV 10 Celeron 38
Downloading with /v option PIV 59 Celeron 84 and straigth file transfer PIV 13 and Celeron 39 (all in seconds)

Next will be comparing up and download with a Freesco on AMD 1700+ 64 Samba

In the past I tried to use Samba to bear my windos files, but the windows application had trouble with the write speed and the bTrieve database got corrupted.
I want to try that again. (without the misfits)
