|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.|
Thanks, Roberts. Good to know it's a Qemu problem and that I wasn't doing something silly or wrong.
On the Qemu-Windows site, as you said, r/w for vvfat was added as a feature 11/2006, but on the Qemu site, the latest release (0.8.2) was 07/2006, so I guess we're waiting on the new release (0.8.3 ?) for support on that feature. Frustrating. I very much look forward to r/w on the vvfat mount so that backup.tar.gz is more easily accessable and not "embedded" within the harddisk file.
In the meantime, what is everbody else doing with their backups?
Just not using the vvfat mount for the time being and defaulting to the old 'harddisk' method of previous versions?
I haven't looked too closely at the webdata backup/restore script because I don't have an ftp account anywhere, but that may be a temporary solution I look into now for the moment.
Above all, sorry for talkin' Qemu on the DSL forums!
Heavens to Murgatroid!
