Install Mandrake On E: Instead Of F: ?
Posted 22 October 2002 - 01:52 PM
Can I still store pirated games on the F: drive?
Canít you change it so that drive F: with my pirated games doesnít get overwritten?
No. And by the way, this is not a Linux issue; the BIOS that supports the F: drive doesnít support any partitioning of the additional space.
Is it possible to install on E: instead of F: and by that get the dual features? Store games on F: and have linux on E: ??

It sounds as if it still could corrupt some data on your F drive. I ran setup8 before being aware of this, and it prevented the first game I ripped from running from the hdd. I re-ripped the game (yes, I own it) and then it worked.
Also, the xbox isnt really aware that the 2gb is taken up. So, if you rip a bunch of CDs via the MS Dash, or otherwise put files on E, it will eventually begin overwriting sectors which linux uses to make it unuseable.
For these reasons I've not yet installed xbox linux. I'm waiting for there to be virtual fileystem support, such as there was with "Eds Live CD .5"

|Does anyone else have any experience with this? I just installed a new 120 gid hd and I would have no problem letting mandrake have all of e:.|
You can't unless you don't care to play games anymore!
E:\ is for saved games, additional content, music rips, etc.
If the Xbox runs out of room here it will not launch a lot of games.

Im afraid to write to this partition since I believe Linux is stored there. Yet everything tells me its empty.
