Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi Eero, I've tested the tool with other hardware - everything seemed okay. Obviously the SD card reader in my notebook is supported weakly under linux. All in all this tool is working quiet good now. So I will do some bugfixing (e.g. supporting some special characters in TOS file names, which are n...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

During thinking about the slow writing speed under Linux :wink: I've finished the function I want to add: sorted view of directories, deleting files and dir's and adding whole directories from local drive. It's compilable for Windows too, by uncommenting a define in "gemddlg.h" (sure there...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

There is indeed a difference between Windows and Linux. To have a correct relation between progress bar and real written data on device, it is needed to do a fdatasync() from time to time under Linux - otherwise all the data is cached and the progress bar jumps to 99%, and it takes the whole rest of...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Maybe this is the reason:

Code: Select all

$ sudo hdparm -tT /dev/mmcblk0

/dev/mmcblk0:
 Timing cached reads:   1974 MB in  2.00 seconds = 987.80 MB/sec
 Timing buffered disk reads:  22 MB in  3.01 seconds =   7.31 MB/sec
 

But to be honest, I cannot believe that's the whole story...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi Eero, after my Windows takes me 1.5 days (evenings) to be usable after I didn't use it for 2 month, I've tested the currently checked in code under Windows and Linux. Same hardware, same SD card, same code: Windows needs 1 minute to write 500M, Linux needs 7 minutes. It is just a raw write to the...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi Eero, this tool reads/writes directly from/to e.g. /dev/mmcblk0. The reading speed is okay so far, but writing is about 5 times slower than under windows. Bigger block sizes (I use 1M) doesn't help. Asking Google shows me, I'm not the only one with this problem, but unfortunately is shows me no s...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi Badwolf, I've just commit some changes and reworks. You should check out again, because I did many, many source changes just to get more structured code (by far not ready, but more or less understandable now). I've added a file / directory delete function and directory navigation within the file ...

Re: Atari file system support for Linux ?

Hi guys, I've ported P.Putniks tool to QT 4.x (should also work on 5.x). Almost all functionality should work. Maybe there is a "delete file" function possible in future, but earnestly, I'm not a filesystem specialist. To deeply understand how P.P.'s tool is working inside, some work has t...
