Win98 / Linux not happy together

Win98 / Linux not happy together

Post by Yu, Horace [WDLN2:2X22:EXCH » Tue, 23 Nov 1999 04:00:00



Dear gurus,

    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)

OSs:
Win98 2nd edition
Mandrake

        Thank you!

Sounds like a duplicated use of clusters. Check the partitions with Linux FDISK, whether some clusters are used by
two partitions. Another problem might be, if the harddisk uses some kind of harddisk-manager software (in the MBR)
which interferes with Linux, because of different disk geometries...

Sorry ... forgot to put my name ...

Anyway, thanks for your reply ... however, the partitions I have is assigned consecutively ... so there should be no
overlapping ... as to the harddisk itself, I am using a Western Dig. 18Gig ... and I ran there program "EzDrive" when
I initially  installed and formatted the drive .... would that be the "harddisk manager software" that you are
talking about ?? ....

What does fdisk -l say?  Is there an extended partition
/dev/hda4 containing /dev/hda5 and /dev/hda6? Or is
/dev/hda3 the extended partition.  If so, you SHOULD
be having problems.

That's it.  How old is your BIOS?  You're not supposed to need EZDrive
unless your BIOS is too old to support large drive geometries.
Unfortunately, if EZDrive is installed and your BIOS *does* support
the drive in the first place, you are guaranteed to have a screwup! :(

Take care,

Dave

Use Deluxe Commander, that will save your - - - - "Ploomage"
Then, if you have a Gateway or such, call them about a Bios Up-grade. else
find out what kind of Momboard you have and Up-grade that. Momboards are
around $100.00 and if you don't have a very old system, you might be able to
use everything else.

Else, just buy a New system and give the old one to a charity and write it
down on your taxes.

1. PHP/Apache/MySQL not happy together

having trouble getting PHP 3.0.13 to agree to talk to MySQL 3.23 under
Apache 1.3 on my LinuxPPC 1999 R4 system.

independently, all work fine ... i can get PHP scripts to run, having
made the necessary changes in httpd.conf.

and MySQL is up, it can run the client, talk to it, etc.

but i'm just stumped getting all three happy -- my database access
attempts result in errors like

  Fatal error: Call to unsupported or undefined function mysql_connect()
in /home/httpd/html/php/listpress.php3 on line 3

can anyone help with this?  thanks a lot.

fred
