Do you have update 1 installed before adding update 2 ?

Well, that makes a difference, doesn't it

To the problem, though, I cannot say much. The only occasion I know when this happens is under certain circumstances that involve using a message port with PF_SOFTINT from timer device, apparently this can cause the infamous input event crashes. Other than that I am at a loss - I certainly don't witness these, and, to the best of my knowledge, the beta testers didn't report any either (except in the afforementioned case)

I thought it would be best not to take the quick format


With any reasonably recent hard drive (like after 1990 or so), quick format is the only format you should do.

Found out of it yesterday... but done is donw

Oh, and while you're at it: Since you do have two physical drives, why don't you spread/mix your partitions over the two drives, so you e.g. have SYS: on one physical drive and Work: on another, and similar for the Linux partitions? It could cut down a lot on the disk trashing.

I don't have two physical drives in my AmigaOne atm. (no. two is ordered, but this dealer is not as fast as Justin, so...).
I ordered this new drive as I had problems getting Linux installed on the same drive as OS4 on my new uA1-C (have followed the articles etc. but it didn't work) so the most easy thing would be to buy an extra harddisk drive

@ EntilZha, Tomppeli

I also have a A1Se with PS2 keyboard and mouse, but the update #2 went well.
(Of course I waited 20 hours after reading Tomppeli's message to do!)

So this is not a problem for all early A1's with PS2 Keyboards and mice.

HI,

Thanks for the update! I was particulry looking forward to the mass transfer support and so eagily plugged my camera in.

Imediatly I switch the camera on I get a error requester,
___
Disk warning!

Partition 0 is larger
than disk geometry allows!
Errors may occur when
accessing this partition!

Ok
____

After clicking okay an icon called TOSHIBA256M apears on the workbench and I appear to be able to access the files on it. I've read files from not written to it. (after all it's a camera )

The camera is a Novatec SX410Z3 and has a Toshiba 256 Mbyte Memory card in it.

It shows up in usb inspector as a mass storage device under funtion and multiclass in the topology tab.

Any else getting such warning requesters on startup? Are there any settings associted with ub devices I might need to tweak to get rid of it?

@Rogue

I see , well it's very real to me. The crashing that is. Is there any way to get Grim to automatically write a crash log to a device other than ram: ?

Thanks for this update, Hyperion! It's great to see OS4 getting more and more features. I'm going to test my cameras and a mass storage device in the next couple of days.

I'm looking forward to the final release of OS4; I'm very sure, it will be great and I hope that once OS4 is out, you guys at Hyperion will get time to work on games and apps (hint: Real3D)

Regards,
Santa

No, there isn't. But if you have a serial terminal, you can capture the output there.

AH Absolutly superb .

Just been testing out moovid with a divX version of Final Fantasy, it looks gooooorrgeous in fullscreen running at full speed with no stuttering hehe. (well except its not in the center of the screen, minor glitch)

atm my first example of my A1 power compared to windows doing an identical process (divX decoding) and im impressed.

Also USB mass storage worked lovely with my 64mb USB watch.

cant wait until powerpc.library or warpos.library is to be implement.


ps anyone no how to slow down flash anims in SWFPlayer 68k as they go super fast

Yes. But the point was to have him make sure there was no checkmark for "Amiga keyboard" in Input Prefs. Just in case.

Best regards,

Niels

I have a 64 MB USB memory stick that does the same, while my 1GB stick doesn't (nor any of my other USB devices).

These devices apparently really do have an invalid partition setup, even if Windoze makes them appear to work fine. Anyway, as long as you can read the files, you can probably also write them (my personal experience, YMMV, of course, no warranty). CrossDOSFileSystem does *some* working around the problem, but even if it makes it work, it still wants you to know the problem is there, so you can repartition your device when convenient.

Best regards,

Niels

Like mtreasure I too am getting crashes with CDRW/DVD-RW.

I have been having various problems with DVD-RW for some time but since the update
I have not even been able to format a disk as the DVD-RW task crashes when the
format is complete.

@ Rassilon
@Joerg

I have removed the DOSDrivers from Workbench, stuffed them back in Storage for the time being. Have been shown how to use MakeCD to do my system backups which is what I was mainly using the CD/DVD RW functionality for anyway.

Since removing the DOSDrivers the system is working fine since.
