Old Mint and old program thingy.

Postby neanderthal » Tue Mar 20, 2018 9:56 pm

So some old 'minters' out there?(didn't see a mint section in here)
Have this weirdo idea of mine to get old CAF more mintish and stumbeled upon this.

pid ... :block_IO.c:bio_readin:RWABS fail (return = -258))

It happens when the program does it thing with audio files on a partition
that is about 256 megs.
On a partition that is about 1G in size it doesn't.

Real funny thing is that the files get created and seems to work.
Just that annoying message which really doesn't make sence.
That is if gathered it correctly from the sources,is really XHDI
and if I got it properly from the Scsi primary is MEDIUM NOT PRESENT.
Which of course doesn't make any sence either since a fixed disc.

Combo is mint 1.15.12 and some old HDdriver 6 or something.
And yea have the EXT2 thingy loaded aswell due to easymint version.

The big question is if to try more modern mint version or older for it to work,
really only after some networking with CAF running here(no rebooting),no real fancy desktop stuff or anything..hehe

First, I suggest downloading CAFFIX.PRG and placing that in your Auto folder (although I can’t seem to find a direct download right now)

Failing that, contact Uwe Siemet (http://hddriver.seimet.de/en/contact.html) to get a copy ofhddriver 7.93 - this is the last version of hddriver that plays nicely with CAF’s slightly non-compliant way of scsi handling.
