Re: Installing JXFS

Sorry about the beta testing comment ... I'm not a beta tester, just someone who had lots of room available on a hard drive. I was quite surprised with my results, especially when my system could not find ENV:.

Just to recap my testing ...

My system is a MicroA1 with AmigaOS 4.1 with QuickFixes.
one Western Digital 250 GB 3.5" hard drive

At the time I started testing I already had
two FFS partitions
one JXFS partition

I ran into problems when I added my second JXFS partition.

Likewise, when I deleted the second FFS partition, I could add another JXFS partition with no problems, but I ran into problems when I added another FFS partition after that.

In summary, my particular system works fine with ...

two FFS partitions
one JXFS partition


one FFS partition
two JXFS partitions


one FFS partitions
two JXFS partitions
one SFS partition


two FFS partitions
two JXFS partitions


BTW, my system started acting up shortly after these tests. It was not booting up properly. Could not find the hard drive and would scan bus 0 for about 30 seconds and give up. Would not boot from CD-ROM drive at all. I am not sure yet if it is related to any of the testing above or related to recent battery replacement or just a coincidence. In anycase I now have the hard drive connected to the secondary IDE bus on my MicroA1 and the CD-ROM drive connected to the primary IDE bus. So at least I can boot from CD-ROM if it happens again.
