E-UAE 1.0.0: copying files to hd causes a crash

Is it 'normal' that in E-UAE 1.0.0 copying files to HD volumes causes always a guru (either the filesystem or UAE itself crashes)? Have tested several file systems (SFS, FFS, NGFS), no difference. Tested also copying from WB, CLI and DiskMaster, no difference.

Copying files to Ram disk goes without problems. Also saving files from applications to HD volumes works ok!

I have configured my HDs in .uaerc in this way:

filesystem2=rw,dh2:SOFTA:Softa:,0

I am using E-UAE in X5000, with OS3.5 and KickStart 40.68. Is there any fix for this issue...?

Regards,

Gregor

Unfortunately it's normal. I've been putting up with it for years. To my knowledge it only affects the Amiga versions just to be a slap in the face. It's been there in the UAE core since I've used OS4 that I can remember. I've checked the source and tried to see where it is happening but haven't found it. I suspected it slighty abused the DOS API and tried to close a locked lock. But I haven't found where. A debug version would help.

Sad to to hear that... But thank you for informing me, so that I do not anymore waste my time for useless testing!

BTW, I gave a try to FS-UAE (under Fienix), and it did not have this copying problem. It is also much easier to configure, but unfortunately it is surprisingly slow compared to E-UAE, although in Linux both cores are in use.

Gregor

It's very annoying!
One workaround is to use harddiskimages instead but it's not a perfect sollution.

1. It is SLOW, i have a quite maxed out os3.9 installation that takes MUCH longer to boot up from hdf.
2. the hdf can not be bigger than 2GB. salass00 did a fork of euae to fix that limitation but i'm unsure about how that is progressing. https://github.com/salass00/e-uae
3. It's easier to copy over files to a drawer in your filesystem from os4 than having to mess with hardfiles.

A few years ago i think i could use filesystem harddrives in e-uae when i was using small partitions but i might have dreamt it because when i prepared a small partition just for that earlier this year it would still just crash when copying files.

Thanks for the tip! I tested a partitionable HD image (RDB), and it seems to work ok. I created the image with FS-UAE, and partitioned and formatted it (as pfs3) on OS4.1. It was a little bit tricky to get the RDB image mounted (had to use both MountDiskImage and Mounter from Cli), but fnally got it working. BTW, I put the HD image on a NTFS volume, so that it can also be used with Linux/FS-UAE.

Regards,

Gregor
