Today, I had the idea, that maybe a look to the file-dates could give an explanation for this strange behavior.
1) Write-protected USB-pen without using floppy disk:
When I boot from the write protected USB-pen, the whole file-system on this USB-pen has files with original file-dates.
No surprise, as the USB-pen was write-protected (with hardware-switch), therefore no changes.
2)a) Write-protected USB-pen with using floppy disk:
When I boot from the floppy-disk first and from the write-protected USB-pen second, it doesn't make sense as the system chrashes with an error code (see previous messages).
2)b) Write-enabled USB-pen with using floppy disk:
When I boot from the floppy-disk first and from the write-enabled USB-pen second, everything works fine.
Afterwards, I have checked the file-dates in mnt/sda2, where the backup-file and the opera-uci-files are stored. No changes on the file-dates. These file-dates have older dates.
But when I look to the mnt - directory, where you see all the drives: sda1, sda2, .. I saw on these 1024 byte "files" that they had the actual date. Therefore I think that there has been an access to them during boot. But what is written there and why is it only when booting from a floppy-disk before?
What a pity that there are soooo few replies.
Booting first from a floppy-disk and second from a CD should have the same effekt. Maybe you can try this?
Hope somebody can help and explain what the reason for this strange behavior is.
Thank you very much in advance.
