DOS app on JFS, HPFS and FAT
« on: 2010.01.22, 17:36:38 »
Hi guys,
   I think I may have found very weird bug in JFS when in DOS. I have a JFS partition (about 30GB), a HPFS partitition (30GB) and a DOS paritition (512MB). When I run Autocad R10 (really, really old) on the JFS partition, I get the error:

FATAL ERROR: Overlay file d:\apps\acad\acad.ovl invalid

However, when I install acad on either the HPFS partition or the DOS partition, everything works!

Note: I did check that the acad.ovl file had the same check sum on the JFS partition and I also did a full copy from the HPFS partition to the JFS partition.

Has anyone else seen this? Perhaps I should file a bug report.

This could very well be the problem that got fixed yesterday. Take a look at this ticket:
http://bugs.ecomstation.nl/view.php?id=2077

I worked yesterday on this with our kernel expert to fix this. This JFS build has not been released to the public yet!
But now that this same DOS game runs from JFS it also comes with a file open error (at least not a kernel trap!). Maybe the same as your bug ? Don't know.

Open a bug in the eCS bugtracker.

Hi Roderick,
  I filed a bug report. But I prefer not to upload my acad10 on the bug report page. I can mail it to you if that can help with the debugging.

Thanks!
