No worries,took a while but figured it out.
(btw I am not the fastest to respond to things
,more of a loner so to speak)
Did some source reading and so forth and took a long shot.
It paid off.
I moved the mint 'system' partition(the easymint part),or how one says in the mint world since you always boot via gemdos so to speak,to a minix file system and disabled ext2 driver.
No annoying messages to be confused about now.
And on the plus side,now my devpac3 and lattice C seems to work again as supposed to.
They could not find the binaries before (gen.ttp , mon.prg ,all that you know).
Must been a early ext2 adaptation or something?
I have still a bit to go on testing the latest stuff since want both worlds,
ie just to run old GEM:ish(dos:ish) programs and still be able to do networking and things like that.
Cudos to easymint not to care where it runs from,I like that kind of stuff.
(you have to manually copy the files to new drive tho)
Reminds me,never checked the fault logs if there are any ..lol
Wonder if the ext2(old) driver messes up DTA or something?
Just speculation tho since seen that CAF uses it a lot.
