Software News   Software News : SFS 1.245
   posted by VooDoo on 13-Jul-2005 10:41:27 (4605 reads)
New SmartFileSystem is available for download! (68k and OS4 version)

- SFS now refuses to format too large partitions and existing too large
partitions are mounted read-only. The current partition size limits
of SFS are:
64 GB with 512 bytes/block
128 GB with 1024 bytes/block
256 GB with 2048 bytes/block
512 GB with 4096 bytes/block
1 TB with 8192 bytes/block
2 TB with 16384 and 32768 bytes/block
Don't keep using old SFS versions because you have too large
partitions and want to continue using them, you WILL get errors on
such partitions sooner or later.

Ok, I must have missed a patch or download somewhere:
8.Workbench:Devs> version L:SmartFilesystem full
SmartFilesystem 1.233 (09/16/2004)
AmigaOS4 PPC

That doesn't look like v1.241 as referenced in the patch file. Is there somewhere to download the full OS4 version? Could that be why some people's are failing (was it replaced and accidentally downgraded with pre-release 3?)?
No idea why there is a SmartFileSystem in L:, you can delete it. The one in SYS:Kickstart from update3 is version 1.241.

Off- the version in kickstart was earlier, so I sanity checked the rest of the file versionds as well- everything else was fine, so no clue.

But, backed it up, copied from the OS4 u3 archive, then patched, and copied the resulting file back over, all seems well so far.

Umm, BTW do NOT try to use the WOS binary- first time I saw an actual Guru Meditation error (NOT GR) on OS4

PS- I was just trying it to test, not to use the resultant patched file (from the WOS bin )

So with this new version, im yet to upgrade yet but if I increase my blocksize of sfs partitions greater than 512 will it improve the speed of them?
Cheers

"Do I have to do something else (play with MediaToolBox or reformat my partition) ?"

Yes, you need to set the Identifier (in media Toolbox "Select filesysteem/edit details", custom) to "53465300" which then comes up SFS\00. And it's a nice pink colour.

I only found that out when I read the instructions for the 68k version. Nothing on the SFS website.

Be careful to back everything up before you start to fiddle!

I done it this way. I renamed the old to something like
SmartFileSystem1.241/5 and the new one to SmartFileSystem.
Started media toolbox, choosed edit filesystem, choosed
update existing filesystem and it worked.

Or should i not do it this way ?

No, remove it again. PPC native filesystems in the RDB are notsupported! Unfortunately MediaToolBox still allows it
Copy the new SmartFileSystem to SYS:Kickstart/SmartFileSystem, that's all.

i bet that the most of SFS related problems on AOS4, are due this error.

Nobody has read Toaks how-to install SFS on intuitionbase.com?

Time to take a look

If you have a newer PPC SFS version in the RDB than in SYS:Kickstart: Yes, the SFS partitions will not be mounted any longer because the PPC native filesystem can't be read from the RDB. If the RDB version is the same as, or older than, the one in SYS:Kickstart it's ignored and doesn't cause problems.

Quote:

Since supporting PPC native filesystem in the RDB would make AmigaOS4 RDBs incompatible to AmigaOS 3.x ones, the purpose of the RDB was to have a standard for all controllers to be able to move HDs between different controllers and it's not required (it has no advantage over loading PPC native filesystems as kickstart modules) I wont add support for it. But I don't know if it will be supported later and someone else will add the support for it.

No, because no one knows about it. Why not put a link on the download page?

I've just tried this SFS on my second drive (after backing up, blah blah), and quite frankly if this Amiga gets any faster, I simply won't be able to keep up with it!

Should I mention what happens to Windows after a few weeks of fiddling about with strange programs does to the speed, hawh, as that would be rather churlish.

But I must ask, my memory seems to have dropped a bit, down to 430,000,000 from around 480,000,000. Not inself a problem, but is this due to SFS?

I've got a Micro with 512 memory, and those figures are aproximate on reboot.

ohh Stephen_Robinson . . . "no one knows about it" is a little bit exagerated!

Not directly, 1/8 of the free virtual memory is used by diskcache.library for disk caches. Currently it's only used by SFS (if you don't have SFS partitions diskcache.library isn't used and doesn't allocate memory) and the cache size isn't configurable yet. If you want more free RAM instead of fast disk speed (on SFS partitions) you can remove diskcache.library from your kicklayout.

No, I think that's resonable, less memory, more speed. It's nice to see some value in the 512 stick of memory I bought, it's not like I'm running out of memory to be honest! My fault for not doing more constructive things with it I suppose!
