Also which is the best file system to use?

SFS0 for the boot partition.

SFS0 or SFS2 or JXFS for the other partitions. (SFS0 if you want best chance of recovering/repairing it, SFS2 if you want support for 64-bit files, and JXFS if you want to use something more modern than SFS2.)

Can Hyperion or someone PLEASE make Update 1 available via a Torrent? It was *designed* for this kind of situation, allowing large downloads by large numbers of people. Then you don't need massive bandwidth for your web site.

If they do release the ISO via torrent, they would have to do so over a private tracker, but basically it is a good idea.

So what are you using?
If I have got this right, SFS0 for Boot Partition (Workbench, System or whatever it's called).

What has everyone got on the other (non-Workbench) partitions?
Do I want 64bit files support?
SFS2 is more modern than SFS0, in what exactly, what are the advantages?

SFS2 for OS4 partition and the rest JXF4



I thought only FFS and SFS0 partitions could be used to boot from ?

Is SFS2 now supported for booting ?

SFS0 for everything except my Data partition (which uses SFS2 to allow a super large partition, and potentially files over 2GB size).

Quote:

Yes.

Quote:
What has everyone got on the other (non-Workbench) partitions?

3rd-party programs on my Programs partition. Games on my Games partition (although it would just as sensibly be a folder on my Programs partition). Data files on my Data partition, which is synced to my Windows PC's Data partition via FolderSync2.

I don't install anything on my Workbench/Boot partition, unless it's required.

Quote:

SFS2 is basically identicaly to SFS0, except that it supports larger partitions & files.

The Kickstart files cannot be loaded off SFS2 by UBoot firmware, as far as I know. Maybe it is different for the Peg2 OpenFirmware thing?

Nonsense. Of course this works. Just make sure you install the SLB_v2 from the ISO to your harddrive and there you go

Someone also reported that OS4.1 Update 1 won't allow itself to be installed to SFS2.

It's not UBoot but SLB_v2 which loads the Kickstart.. like I said in my former comment: Install the SLB from the Update 1 ISO to your harddrive and you can use SFS/2 for your boot partition.

(I admit I'm not sure if this SLB also contains JXFS support... someone brave might try :) )

I don't know what this guy did, but I installed it without problems on an SFS/2 partition of my A1.
