I know that the Lighthouse Pup derivatives all recognize ext4 partitions so I assumed that it was pmount that did it.
So ... I copied the pmount exec from LHPup 503 (Tazoc's latest 32-bit LHPup which correctly identifies my /dev/sda7 partition as ext4), and executed it in Macpup528.

It ran perfectly but listed my ext4 partition as ext3!
So I'm wondering where and how does Macpup identify the partitions?

I looked in fstab (after booting into macpup 528) and all I see is:
Quote:
none /proc proc defaults 0 0
none /sys sysfs defaults 0 0
none /dev/pts devpts gid=2,mode=620 0 0
/dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy auto noauto,rw 0 0

which doesn't tell me much.

I looked in LHpup /sbin and saw that Tazoc had another exec - pmount3 with a note that it was changed to recognize ext4 partitions. It ran properly on LHPup 503 but when I copied it to Macpup it only ran far enough to display the swap partition then it quit. I ran it in a terminal and it showed an error message .
Quote:
sh-4.1# /pmount3
Killing old window
/pmount3: line 770: 20400 Terminated yaf-splash -font "8x16" -outline 0 -margin 4 -bg orange -text "Puppy Drive Mounter

Please wait, probing hardware..."

I'm not up to any more investigating than that so I pass this ext4 puzzle onto someone who's more tech capable than I am.

Just a short not : not at any Macpup atm :
pmount uses

grep 'ext[2-4]' /usr/sbin/pmount
#v420JPa1 4Jun09: fix mount iso9660, ext2/ext3
#VALIDPARTS="`echo "$PARTSINFO" | grep -E 'vfat|msdos|ntfs|minix|ext2|ext3|ext4|reiser|xfs|iso9660'`"
VALIDPARTS="`echo "$PARTSINFO" | grep -E 'vfat|msdos|ntfs|minix|ext2|ext3|ext4|reiser|xfs|iso9660|udf'`"

bash-3.00# grep 'PARTSINFO=' !$
grep 'PARTSINFO=' /usr/sbin/pmount
PARTSINFO="`$PROBEPART -k | grep -v 'none' | tr ' ' '_' | tr '\t' '_' | cut -f 1-3 -d '|'`" #v3.98 fix for mut2.
PARTSINFO="/dev/$i|vfat|1440
PARTSINFO="$FDDRIVE|vfat|1440
cutPARTSINFO="`echo "$PARTSINFO" | grep "$xDSKPATTERN" | tr '\n' ' '`"

bash-3.00# grep 'PROBEPART=' !$
grep 'PROBEPART=' /usr/sbin/pmount
PROBEPART="probepart"
PROBEPART='mut --noserv probepart' #v407

bash-3.00#

To get the partitions .
Puppy does not write much into /etc/fstab automatically, except the default four lines cited above and only used by /etc/rc.d/rc.shutdown at last line busybox umount -ar

Wow the .062 build of e .That's Fox 3 . I haven't boot that up in a long time. I misunderstood what you were telling me,Sorry.

BTW they changed the edj file format, mp511 has the new type and the converter for the old type. If you make .edj files in a macpup before 511 they wont work in any of the ones from 511 on.....

Thanks for the replies.
The ext4 thing was "Operator Error"!
If you have "use MUT" checked for pmount it won't recognize ext4 partitions.
Un-check it and it does see ext4.
Egg on my face.

mut is a pretty old project by Jesse :

mut2 update - fixes for Dingo 4.1alpha5
in times of kernel 2.6.25

ext4 was introduced with kernel 2.6.30 i think .

I was wondering. An error happened while trying to get an app working in Macpup 528, and x crashed.

I wound up in the tty screen. I tried to see if I could get into a different tty session by ctrl+alt+(f2/3/4..etc;)

But it requested a password. I wasn't aware that Macpup had a root password.

I know that you guys didn't expect that people would need it. Usually your in X. But it's good to know it in case X crashes again and I need to get into weechat via command line to ask for help.

Thanks in advance for any answers.

If X crashes you need to run "xwin enlightenment_start " at the prompt.

What where you trying to run?
