Talk about anything related to Gentoox or Gentoo.

extended-f drive patch BIG problem.

Post by xostia » Mon Dec 27, 2004 1:07 pm

I have a 300 Gb HD. I had the F drive and G drive in the standard form of xecuter2 bios .67, exactly 4983.67. All worked ok but now, after the patch I can not read the F and the G (F with FATX and G formatted using reiserfs) dissapeared (device /dev/hda56 not found).

the df command shows that:

Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/loop/0 3.0G 2.1G 871M 71% /
df: `/cdrom': No such file or directory
/dev/loop/0 3.0G 2.1G 871M 71% /
/dev/hda50 4.8G 3.2G 1.6G 67% /mnt/fatx/e
/dev/hda55 272G 257G 16G 95% /mnt/fatx/f

ALL THE DISK APPEARS IN F, and I can not mount my home (the G).

I tryed to use the xbpartitioner, writing a partition table on disk using the xecuter2 4877 patched to read this partition on disk (an standard one with F and G) but gentoox does not recognize the partition table and appears empty, no partition table.

Please, anybody can help me to uninstall the patch? I think that all is ok because I have access to F from evox... but I would like to recover my /home.

I need your help. Thanks

Hi:

With the help of Thomas Pedley from Shallax.com I solved it not using the /dev/hda5 and /dev/hda56.

I created with fdisk this partitions (that are exactly the partitions created by the xecuter2 bios selecting the option .67 F limited 137Gb and G the rest):

Disk /dev/hda: 300.0 GB, 300001443840 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 36473 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/hda1 974 16710 126401191+ e1 DOS access
/dev/hda2 16710 36474 158752432+ 83 Linux

After this, I changed the mount devices in /etc/fstab from /dev/hda5 and /dev/hda56 to /dev/hda1 and /dev/hda2 and... all working perfect from linux and from EVOX.

I selected for /dev/hda1 DOS access in the type of partition... I don't know if this is ok but using type FATX when you mount it all works.

I hope that this could help somebody.

Enjoy your Christmas. :lol:
