FAT32 issue in OpenSolaris 1020 B122

Hi All,

 So I've been looking into this some more.

 The issue is with the windows folder "My Documents", having a space in the directory name.

The terminal command chmod is not handling it the same as nautilus.

If I create a directory with Windows 7 "My_Documents" then it does come up with read / write permissions correctly at mount time.

So now I have to put the "_" character in all my Windows directories, change all the Windows programs to find "My_Documents" and My Pictures, and My Music and My Videos.

FAT32 funny on OpenSolaris B122

Hi All,

 I've been working on the B122 OpenSolaris Acer One 10", I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on the first partition, FAT32 in the middle and ZFS at the end.

I mount the FAT32 partition via /etc/vfstab during boot.

My Documents is coming up in read only mode.

If I try to do a chmod -R 777 /shared_fat32/Daves/My\\ Documents nothing happens.

If I bring up nautilus and change the properties to read / write and apply to all sub folders, it actually does it.

I can now create files in My Music, My Pictures, etc.

Wish I could work out why ?

Slicing and dicing the HD in a different way - NTFS, Fat32 and ZFS on B110

Hi All,

 So I thought I would  try something differnet on the AA1 10 inch, Fuse is pretty good for read and writting ntfs but it does seem to kill the netbook sometimes.

 With this new netbook I've sliced the disk this way:

40Gb - NTFS - Windows XP Home, still have to run iTunes

60Gb - Fat32 data

40Gb - ZFS - OpenSolaris Nevada (SXCE) B110

 I'm trying to setup everything so the data for my user is on the Fat32 partition even if it is Windows or OpenSolaris I'm booted into.

I can mount the Fat32 partition in OpenSolaris and I've link my user home directory to it.

So I'm building compiz 0.8.0, see if I can get the MSI to run it.

Found another bug in gnome-system-monitor, on my big Asus C90S powertop says:

 Cn            Avg    residency    P-states (frequencies)
C0 (cpu    running)        (8.4%)     1596 Mhz    100.0%

Wakeups-from-idle per second: 237.7     interval: 5.5s

Top causes for wakeups:

 1.6% (     3.9)               <kernel> :    ehci`ehci_handle_root_hub_status_change


But gnome-system-monitor only shows one processor ?

So much to test, so little time :-)
