Exterrium OS the First with Read and Write Support?

Jun 2, 2012 at 9:35 PM

Im planning to Commit to Cosmos and add a dll which will allow other users to add Fat Support (Read and Write) to there Cosmos Based OS.

 

P.S The dll is done just gotta think about this

Man!! I don't like to disappoint you but I did it and there is a project based on Cosmos did it, I think you would be the third.

 

Now we have a little problem that we can't write to files in directories like this "test/test1/test2" so we can't write to file in the directory "test1" or "test2" but we can write to file in the directory "test".

Just tried my solution and it works perfectly... not sure why yours doesn't... Also does yours support partitioning?

So you've implemented Fat Write support and a VFS?

Rather than say "Hey look I have Fat32 Read And Write, Look at me!", why dont you release the source so the community can learn from it, like I do with PearOs. Because by you gloating on how you figured it out, but not releasing the source is doing no good. Its great you figured it out, now maybe its time you help out the community. - Matt

 

P.S. Who cares about, who figured it out first. What we do care about is how did you do it, and can we look at the source? Because we would like to learn from it.

Okay I'm traveling for one week and after this I will release the source code.

 

So of course I will release it as fast as possible.

 

Hope it will help you!!

Thank Ahmed, now we can learn and see how this works, I have always been curious on how FAT32 works, but its a nightmare =). Thanks -  Matt

Josh, love the plus 1. Codeplex should have something like that in the forums. =)

Actually FAT12/16/32 are quite simple...

So why didn't you include this for us instead of forcing us to code this ourselves? I admit it wasn't hard... Though it has a few problems it works perfect in debug mode but sometimes hangs on release mode...

Because during the work we did we encountered lots of other things we needed to work on (debugger, compiler bugs, etc)..
Just hacking something togetherfor FAT support isn't that hard, but doing it in a way that fits in our planned kernel structure is a different story..
