can't get magic newfs to work on gentoox 4.0 home

Post by malarkey » Sun Jun 26, 2005 12:05 am

I really hope someone can help with my question here. I've searched throughout the forums, and can't find any info on my problem. I installed Gentoox 4.0 home, ran emerge, and magic availible to see if there were any new patches, and it says I'm up to date. The fatx patch appears to be up to date as well from the install. So I went to make a new filesystem, since I plan on running a game server on my Xbox, and there's not enough room with the existing partition. I typed in 'magic newfs', gave it a name, and size of under 4GB, and it says that it created successfully, but if I scroll up, I get the following error.
Enter the name for the new space: uoserver
Enter the size for the new space MB: 3800
uoserver will be created of size 3800 MB
If this is not correct, press ctrl+c to cancel
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0
Continuing...
Making new filesystem...
dd: opening `/mnt/fatx/f/uoserver': Read-only file system
mke2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
Could not stat /mnt/fatx/f/uoserver --- No such file or directory

The device apparently does not exist; did you specify it correctly?
tune2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
tune2fs: No such file or directory while trying to open /mnt/fatx/f/uoserver
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
tune2fs 1.35 (28-Feb-2004)
tune2fs: No such file or directory while trying to open /mnt/fatx/f/uoserver
Couldn't find valid filesystem superblock.
All done
The partition has been mounted to /mnt/uoserver so you now have an extra
3800 MB of storage within linux. This image will be automounted on startup
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hrm, that seems fun.

Show me the output of:

`mount | grep fatx`

Also, if you're planning on running SunUO via Mono on an Xbox, I wouldnt bother - it requires FAR more RAM than 64MB. It takes about 30 minutes to compile the scripts on startup :(

Hi ShALLaX,

Thanks for your reply. Great OS btw.

Here's what it gave me.
Xbox root # mount | grep fatx
/dev/ide/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/part50 on /fatx type fatx (rw)
/dev/hda50 on /mnt/fatx/e type fatx (rw,umask=0000)
/dev/hda55 on /mnt/fatx/f type fatx (rw,umask=0000)
I'm assuming you wanted to see if it was r/w, which it appears to be.

Hope this helps.

Edit to add: I plan on running a Call of Duty United Offensive server on the xbox. I've heard some people have managed to run Quake 3 servers on their xbox, so Call of Duty shouldn't be much different since it uses the same engine and all, and it uses linux binaries as well. :)

I cant see why that isnt working... maybe your F: partition is corrupt? Is it over the 137GB boundary?

Hey ShALLaX

Sorry for the late reply. It's a friends xbox that I'm working on, and I've been the one doing all the mods and upgrades on it, but I forget the size of his hard drive. I'll find out this weekend, and see what the size of the F partition is. I know that there's more than enough room on it. Something like 80 gigs free. My friend wanted me to reinstall gentoox 3.2 home on his xbox, and use magic to update it to see if that would fix the problem. But I don't exactly want to have to go through 12+ hours of updating, if it turns out that it was for nothing in the end.

I'll keep you updated on anything I find out.
