File system issues
I tried to access different filesystems with JNode on vmware 3.2 and Linux.
I made a complete disk available to JNode with many different partitions on it and here are my findings:
The exended partitions are not recognized.
The fat16 partitions are mounted and the root directory can bee seen with dir but whenever I cd in a subdirectory the next dir command shows nothing.
For some files cat works, for others I get an IOException from IDEDiskDriver.read(), line 196 : Nonaligned lenght not allowed. Size requested = 513 Sector size = 512 .
mkdir does nothing (no error either) though I'm on fat16 fs that is claimed to be R/W.
I have an ext2 primary partition as well which looks like gets recognized and mounted according to a log entry of FileSystemMounter.
Hoevever all I see form is a zero sized file with equal name to the name of the directory where the partition should normally be mounted.
Anybody has any comments on these problems?
I think somebody familiar with th related code could fix it much easier and in less time than someone unfamiliar with it.
If we had a really working fat16 fs that would make such a big difference and open so many possibilities for developping JNode.
