Re: Installing JXFS

Subject: Re: Installing JXFS

Since I am still confused by the terms FFS and FFS2, I will simply state that I have been using FastFileSystem with Long filenames (DOS\07) (Blocksize 2048) since I first installed OS4.0 pre-release about 3.5 years ago.

Currently using a Western Digital 250 GB hard drive. My previous Maxtor hard drive died with read/write errors shortly after I upgraded to AmigaOS 4.1. It was a very old drive, so I don't think that OS 4.1 killed it.

Currently, I am using FastFileSystem with Long filenames (DOS\07) for my main system partition, and JXFileSystem (JXF\04) for a partition where I store lots of miscellaneous stuff, like music, pictures, videos, pdf files, etc.

I have a 4 partitions:
SWAP approx 2 GB
DH0 my main system approx 2 GB FastFileSystem with Long filenames (DOS\07)
DH1 approx 35 GB JXFileSystem (JXF\04) for my other stuff
DH2 approx 5 GB FastFileSystem with Long filenames (DOS\07) for AmiCygnix

Recently, I added 160 GB partition as per my previous post. Although it seemed to work at first, I could not boot from hard drive after a cold boot.

Only solution was to delete the 160 GB partition.

In the early days of OS4, I had a 1.3 GB hard drive with a single FFS partition. Then I upgraded to my 40 GB Maxtor hard drive with a single FFS partition of about 35 GB. Later on, I carved that drive up into a smaller system partition and a large 2nd partition, both FFS. When I installed AmigaOS 4.1 on the Maxtor drive, I had a SWAP partition, a small FFS system partition, and a large JXFS partition.
