I have a Cirrus card, and help me like that: After every 'dos' session I
restore the textmode. I wrote a file like this:
[vpdose]:~$ less /usr/local/bin/dos
restoretextmode -r /etc/VGATextmode
Of course you have to save your 'normal' textmode in /etc/VGATextmode or
somewhere else with 'restoretextmode -w <filename>'.
Hope it helps.
I have the following setup :
/dev/hda1 Win98 C: drive (2 Gig)
/dev/hda2 Linux swap (128M)
/dev/hda3 Linux native ( / ) (8 Gig)
/dev/hda5 Linux ( /home ) (1 Gig)
/dev/hda6 Win98 D: drive (6 Gig)
I have the following problems:
(1) whenever I touch anything in D: (that means whenever I access D:
for any reason) and THEN reboot the computer and go into Linux, Linux
will say that my /dev/hda3 is not clean, and that it has duplicate
blocks, ... etc
(2) the more I "touch" my D:, the more errors I have to fix when i boot
into Linux (things like Illegal blocks ...)
(3) and after I fixed /dev/hda3 in Linux and THEN go back to Win98 and
do a scandisk on D:, it will tell me that I have two copies of the FAT.
(4) and whenever I fixed the FAT problem in Win98 and THEN go back to
Linux, I have to clean /dev/hda3 again ...!!
(5) anyway, I end up with a lot of lost fragments in /lost+found
(which I could NOT delete)
Win98 2nd edition
