TCE Bugs / Re: qemu needs other libgcrypt
« Last post by hiro on December 08, 2017, 08:35:45 AM »
I always just manually ln the .20 one, but then i never use any feature in qemu that would actually require gcrypt, so i don't know if it would work.

I have this problem also on tc6, there is no libgcrypt1.tcz there.

btw, i didn't get any mail notifications for some while on this forum!

Using Rich's idea didn't work
Trying to copy file watch to fd0
cp /mnt/sda5 ...../watch /mnt/fd0
results in
cp: overwrite '/mnt/fd0/watch' ?
entering y gives
cp: cant create '/mnt/fd0/watch' : permission denied

The floppy works fine in Puppy linux - no problems reading or saving
How do I use uid/gid options?
Would it be better to format it to ext3?

Fat32 doesn't support Linux ownership. You can use the uid/gid mount options, or alternatively edit your file as root.

Hi schober
Maybe you need to unmount it first, then  chown , and then mount the floppy again?

"sudo chown tc:staff /mnt/fd0" gave the result
chown: /mnt/fd0: operation not permitted

Oh dear; not out of the woods yet!
I can read from the floppy but cant write anything  to it
The write protect slider is in the closed position

The cp command doesnt work and I cant save from Leafpad

The floppy can be written to in Puppy on another computer

This is the output of ls
 ls -l /mnt/fd0
total 2
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1452 2017-12-06 17:59 cdr_info

These permissions afaiaa apply to the file cdr_info and not to the disc

How can the disc be made writable?

What happens if you do this:

The floppy can be read and the file opened in W98 on the old computer; so no bios or floppy problems imho ( I did change the boot order to cd,hd,fd in order to boot from the cd)

"sudo mount -t vfat /dev/fd0 /mnt/fd0"  results in
mount: mounting /dev/fd0 on /mnt/fd0 failed: no such file or directory

"showbootcodes" gives
initrd=/boot/core.gz loglevel=3 cde xsetup core BOOT_IMAGE=/boot/vmlinuz

At the boot screen I press TAB and then enter "xsetup core" in order to use a serial mouse
