Software News   Software News : SFS (1.275) released
   posted by _Steve_ on 7-Sep-2007 23:09:00 (3048 reads)
Joerg Strohmayer released a new version of the popular filesystem SFS for both OS3.x and OS4.x.

Recent changes since 1.274 include:

1.275 (29.8.2007)
  • Replaced mutexes by semaphores again.
  • Built for AmigaOS 3.x/m68k incl. 'SFS/2' support. To use 'SFS/2' partitions on AmigaOS 3.x you have to install SmartFileSystem into the RDB with DOSType 'SFS/2' (0x53465302), i.e. to use both 'SFS\0' and 'SFS\2' partitions you have to install the same SmartFileSystem binary 2 times into the RDB.

    If booting from 'SFS\2' partitions isn't required you can load SmartFileSystem as kickstart module using tools like LoadResident, LoadModule, etc. instead of storing it twice in the RDB.


Download this version from the SFS Website now.

@Joerg

If I may ask, since "the rest of us" don't have access to the new SDK... you put the mutexes in for build 274 and pulled them out again in build 275. Can you explain why? (without breaking NDA, of course )

Amazing you can rearrange the NDA into DNA.

2 OS4 beta testers had problems with SFS version 1.274 hanging on heavy usage and I thought I found a bug in the OS4 Mutex code, but I was wrong and the OS4 Mutex functions are correct. I can't reproduce the problems myself and I don't know yet what the actual problem is, but it's probably a bug the current beta versions of diskcache.library (not in the public version) and not in SFS or OS4.

"'SFS/2' (0x53465302), i.e. to use both 'SFS\0' and 'SFS\2' "


/ or \ ???

My Amiupdate got me this a few days ago, which was nice.

@ZeroG

Thanks. I hate that kind of bug (reproduces at a customer's site but not in one's lab), and I wish Joerg the best of luck hunting it down.

\.
But this does not matter, you have to enter the hexnumber in MTB to setup a SFS\2 partition.

I am trying to setup one of my partitions as a SFS2 since it id 59G. All the SFS0 partions are working well. I did not see anything in Toak's manual about this can this be done? If so how?
Thanks,
John Paul
