Mystery CPM disk
I have a couple of disks that have the following geometry:
2 sides, 48 TPI, 512 bytes per sector, 10 sectors per track, sectors
numbered 1-10 on side 1, 11-20 on side 2, and side 2 headers declare
they're actually on side 1 (so essentially masking 2-sided-ness).
The following diskdef for cpmtools works correctly for viewing and
extracting files; the skew was pretty tough to arrive at via inspection:

After a hang and hardware reset, I could not boot into eCS 1.14, getting a
display that I've never seen before: a VGA display with a white background and
a box that said the program pointed to by SET RUNWORKPLACE= could not be
loaded. C-A-D worked to shut this display down, but reboot produced the same
This was corrected by rebooting and using an archived desktop. To make sure
everything is OK I next booted into my maintenance partition and tried to run
CDKDSK C: /F. It wouldn't run because the disk was "in use or locked by
another process". Excep...anyone using these disks with VMS?

I'm trying to clone an existing drive (ext3) to a USB drive. Booted
into rescue mode with cd1, did a
dd if=/dev/sda1 of=/dev/sdb1 bs=4k
after 3 hours, dd reports 145G data written. So I rebooted the box and
then mount /dev/sdb1, there is nothing on it! df shows 55G of data,
but ls shows nothing. any idea?

I'm trying to clone a Win2K disk using Fedora Live on a USB FLASH disk. I
dd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb
It seems to have cloned the MBR correctly and the partition layout looks
correct when I look at it using GParted. However when I tried to the boot
the cloned 2K disk it started to boot and then failed with an
inaccessible boot disk error. When I booted the original 2K disk and
tried to look at the cloned disk it said that the disk wasn't formatted.
So it appears that the NTFS file system wasn't cloned correctly.

I've got a Clearpath L520 running 50.1 MCP, and (in common with everyone
else these days) have oodles of memory. 130 Megawords, of which I can
only use some 70 MW with the databases cranked up to almost obscene
values of allowedcore.
While trying to think of other ways to use it up, I've been playing with
creating 20 Megawords of Memory Disk, and then setting DL SORT to that
disk (family). But - our sorts are too big, and I can't guarantee that
they're no concurrent.
Anyone use Memory Disk out there? What do you put on it?

tunefs(8) is the key. Note the options -m and -o.

Hello forum. I am in the process of transitioning from a very simple
Samba configuration to IBM's PC Fast Connect and I was wondering if
anyone had any gotchas, wisdom, hard won experiences with the product
they could share. As I said, very flat config currently with just file

previously i post to ask about how to add dylib etc
but realise that is for mach-o project.
Does anyone use libtiff before? I need to
know how to compile for power PC instead of 68K
or for mach-o (.a and .dylib)
Think the output should be a .lib file.
Thanks a lot!!!

...Anyone using ZFS with SAN storage?
ZFS seems designed to combine a number of real disk devices into a
storage pool, using various RAID techniques. How well does it work in
the situation where storage comes from a virtual disk on a SAN,
presented in the form of a single LUN? I'm setting up a large IMAP
server with storage provided by an iSCSI SAN. All of the redundancy
and other disk management will take place on the SAN. ZFS on the
server will provide valuable filesystem features, such as dynamic
sizing and snapshots. This seems like a good design to me. Are there
any drawbacks to using ZFS in this manner?

You aren't really thinking of using Norton GHOST for doing this are

If you try to use a disk on your C64/128 which was used in a PC it is
not possible to format that disk on the C128D-CR (with the CBM-format).
There will always be an error after formatting.
Now I also figured out that the problem also seems to be the other way
round. I formatted a C64-disk on the PC (wich the MS-DOS format), copied
a D64 on it and wanted to copy this to a C64 disk with the
It seemed that the D64 worked in the PC floppy but the C128 was not able
to make a working copy until I used a disk for the D64 that has only
been used on the PC before.
