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%
C1            3.9ms     (91.6%)     2394 Mhz    0.0%  

Wakeups-from-idle per second: 237.7     interval: 5.5s
Power usage (ACPI estimate): 0.000W

Top causes for wakeups:
67.6% (160.7)               <kernel> :    genunix`cv_wakeup
42.1% (    99.9)               <kernel> :    genunix`clock
21.4% (    50.8)                  sched :    <cross calls>
 6.5% (    15.4)               <kernel> :    uhci`uhci_handle_root_hub_status_change
 4.2% (     9.9)               <kernel> :    ata`ghd_timeout
 2.4% (     5.7)         <interrupt> :    ehci#0
 2.2% (     5.1)         <interrupt> :    ata#0
 1.9% (     4.4)               <kernel> :    uhci`uhci_cmd_timeout_hdlr
 1.7% (     4.0)               <kernel> :    genunix`schedpaging
 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 :-)

reading and writing ntfs partition on B102, Acer Aspire One

Hi All,

Used the instructions from here:

http://blogs.sun.com/gerhardhofweber/entry/ntfs_mounting_rw_on_opensolaris

Over the weekend and built fuse, libfuse and ntfs-3g.

It does allow me to mount the Windows XP Home NTFS partition I left on the hard drive.

Looks like there may be a little problem unmounting the partition the re mounting, my Acer One keeps crashing on the second mount.

Also I was doing a copy of some files to the NTFS partition and tried to stop it with ctrl+c, the system crashed again.

I thought I had a problem getting access to the partition after coming back from suspend, but I cannot get it to lockup nautilus anymore, it works.
