Hallo,

is there any readme or explanation how I have to set up dumpfs ?

1.) What is file os2dump.hd good for ? Is this supposed to replace
os2dump in the root directory ? If yes, will it work on LVM enabled
systems ? Will it work on NON-LVM enabled systems ?
2.) Does the dump partition still have to be FAT16 ?
3.) Does it have to be named SADUMP ?
4.) Can it start whereever it wants or does it have to be entirely below
the 8 GB limit (or any other limit) ?
5.) Not directly related: does anyone know of a simple way to reduce a
partition to make room for a dump partition ?


Thanks for any help,

Lars

Here's my extract from Scott's newsgroup post.

No, it's a dumpfs formatted volume. I don't know if dumpfs will work with
plain old partitions (i.e. Warp4 without LVM support).

It should be using LBA addressing, so you sould be able to put the
partition anywhere that the BIOS IO routines can access.

I use dfsee for this kind of stuff. However, it really depends a lot on
the filesystem type.

Err, the attachment is empty. Maybe you can point me to the newsgroup
and article heading ?

Never mind, Seamonkey had a problem. Now, it doesn't.
