Hi Juanito!

It's found in the mydsl repository in the "Testing" section.

Have fun out there,

So qemu now recognizes my entire flashdrive as hdb, which I think is really cool because that makes the 60mb 'harddrive' file a thing of the past.

Now, my flashdrive is the G: drive on my computer, so qemu sees G: as hdb1, which dsl then mounts under /cdrom.  If I chose to backup to hdb1, it writes backup.tar.gz to /cdrom.  I see it under dsl, but when I look at the G: drive in Windows, it's not there.  When I shut down and unmount and halt dsl, it writes to backup.tar.gz and thinks it's writing to disk, but again, there is no actual backup file in real life.  Is this a unionfs thing?

The only clue I can offer is this snippet I get each time I shutdown.

Code Sample
cloop: losetup_file: 264 blocks, 65536 bytes/block, largest block is 65490 bytes.
cloop: final offset wrong (9624394 not 2239378)
isofs_read_super: bread failed, dev=f0:03, iso_blknum=16, block=32
ioctl: LOOP_CLR_FD: Invalid argument
mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/cloop3,
      or too many mounted file systems
Please mount media containing optional dir and try again.

I have emailed backup.tar.gz to myself from dsl, downloaded it in Windows to the G: drive so I have all my config files and what not, but I lack the ability to save anything new without going through that bally hoo.

Heavens to Murgatroid!

When I went to look at Qemu v0.8.2 for linux, it seemed to want to install off of / with multiple directores. No longer a single self-contained relocatable directory. Maybe, I am off with this assesment. Perhaps this would imply a Qemu extension for DSL may be needed? The windows version is still a no install relocatable self-contained directory. I am open if you find that a smiliar generic Linux setup supporing a nomadic pendrive with native access.

Using the prebuilt i386 tarball off the qemu page works for me even if you don't install it to root (being /).  Afaik the changelog didn't say anything otherwise - so the behaviour should still be the same. (packaging it for dsl-embedded should just be a simple renaming thing)

If that's a new file structure, then I can only guess it was made for easier installation (you could probably even mydsl-load it)

Perdón no se inglés la distro es excelente y he podido recuperar varias maquinas obsoletas para los S.O. de hoy en dia.

El problema es que no se como castellanizarla o pasarla al español, ya que varios usuarios son de una escuela, y les resulta muy dificil poder utilizarla en un idioma distinto.

cmanb, According to the Qemu-Windows site r/w to vvfat was added 11/25/06. If it is still read-only/shadowed then your choice is smbclient, Linneighborhood, or as you have done, email. Perhaps someone can verify and/or monitor the Qemu Windows site. Either way, apparently it is comming.
