I just tried it again with SRCD 1.1.1 but still the floppy module is not loaded automatically. I tried this on several machine's (with different hardware) but all fail :-(

Nope, after performing a simple "modprobe floppy" it just works again, As it did with SRCD 1.0.x . I think that "floppy" should simply be added to /etc/modules, because it is probably not auto-detected....?

Floppy module not loaded

I just tried the latest beta version, but unfortunately the floppy driver/module isn't loaded anymore by default. Now when I execute "mount /mnt/floppy", I get "mount: special device /dev/fd0 does not exist". If I execute a "modprobe floppy" and retry, it does work. Could the floppy module be loaded...

It seems to be related only to the local configuration. When samba receives a packet with text it must be converted to the locale charset. It seems this error is printed in fs/nls/nls_base.c, because it cannot find the nls_utf8.ko module. The NLS UTF8 is built-in, so there is no module. # cd /usr/s...

I have released sysresccd-1.0.4-beta1, you can test it. The option related to SMB and NLS has been changed in the rescuecd and rescue64 kernels. Could you also tell me if you have the same problem with the altker32/altker64 kernels ? In case it does not work, could you try that: There is nothing in...

Thanks for having reported that problem. Could you try to use cifs instead of smb ? cifs supports smb as well. You can use mount.cifs or "mount -t cifs". I will work on that problem, I changed kernel options related to smb, these changes will be available in sysresccd-1.0.4-beta1. Thanks for lookin...

Cifs/SMB usage gives "Unable to load NLS charset UTF8&q

Since version 1.0.2 (including 1.0.3rc2) mount cifs/samba servers seems broken in SystemRescueCD. When accessing such mounts (in my case with partimage to restore an image), the kernel messages (dmesg) fill up with "Unable to load NLS charset UTF8". The restore operation is extremely slow (probably ...

I discovered that the problem is caused inside the /etc/init.d/halt.sh script when it tries to do a fuse unmount on the Samba mount point? I think inside the script one should first check whether the fs was mounted with fuse at all before this, right?

Problems with hanging at shutdown (@"Unmounting filesys

After some debugging I discovered that when one has (in my case) samba shares mounted and then tries to halt or reboot the system, that during the shutdown process it hangs at "Unmounting filesystems". Is this a known issue? I guess the SystemRescueCD should simply also unmount the samba shares and ...

Re: 0.3.2-beta3: halt hangs @ Remounting remaining filesyste

As reported for 0.3-beta versions in this thread (fdupoux, you said you fixed it in version 0.3.1?) the problem persists in version 0.3.2-beta3. See screenshot by LarryT: http://www.fr.laurent.freesurf.fr/halt_p.jpg If I execute "halt" the system hangs at "Remounting remaining filesystems readonly"...

Unable to eject CD after reboot

I switched from Knoppix to SystemRescueCD to restore/backup my images with PartImage. But now I have discovered that when I tell SystemRescueCD to reboot (after I restored an image), the CD tray is locked (I can't get it to eject), and this is (of course) during the BIOS POST screen. It seems that o...

1) About mdrun: The mdadm package did not change. There was no mdrun in beta2. mdrun has been deprecated. Please use mdadm instead. 2) About halt -p I added the APM support in the kernel in my recent build. It allows the computer to power off. You will have this feature in beta5. Didn't now mdrun w...

mdrun / temp mount dirs

Nice version this beta4. Works quite well. Only thing I'm still puzzled about is why in this version doesn't have "mdrun" shipped with it, like version 2 did. Is there a particular reason for this?

And still it would be nice to have some temp1,temp2 etc. directories back in /mnt/
