[MiNT] Wrong partition ID? Why?
Still trying to exchange datas between my MiNT-box and my Linux-box... and I
encounter many many problems...
First, I erased my Windows FAT32 ZIP-100 cartridge (by mistake). <G> Arrrgh!
I used 'mkfatfs' to re-build a (V)FAT32 partition but it always complains about
a wrong partition ID. I tried BGM, RAW, F32 (as it recommends)... I tried also
the DOS compatibility... No use!
Besides, I also tried to read an Ext2 ZIP cartridge built on my Linux-box.
Wonderful! No problem except that Ext2-FS says "Mounting unchecked fs. Running
e2fsck is recommended" but I can read, write and erase files. What else should
I felt very happy... until I launched 'e2fsck' which complains about the wrong
partition ID . (And that silly Ext2-FS says that I'm mounting an unchecked fs
and that I should run 'e2fsck' once again!)
Something should be done about this. IMHO, that's not very clever to recommend
to run a fs-checker when this fs-checker is just starting.
What should I do? Use the hammer hanging on my screen and break the glass? ;-)
See you later,
