XFRPOT missing from Parted Magic 4.6 in UBCD v5.0RC1?

Post by jonnykelly » Tue Nov 10, 2009 11:01 am

Hi,

in v5.0b12 there had been a menu item in Parted Magic 3.7 under Accessories for Xfprot, but it appears that it has been removed from UBCD v5.0RC1 & it's Parted v4.6.

terminal/shell access to fprot is also seemingly not present, or i'm just trying to do it incorrectly.

I do see that in the pmagic/pmodules folder on the CDRom there are several f-prot related .txz files (f-prot-6.0.2.txz, fprot-definitions.txz, xfprot-2.2.txz).

I did see that an 'update' icon for ClamAV was added (very handy - thank you).


Oh, and I too had to use the myubcd.com download link -- the linuxfreedom link appears to be to 5.0b12 not RC1.

Which menu entry of the Parted Magic menu did you boot?
Do you see any of the PC* programs in the menu (PCLoginNow, ...)?
How much RAM does your PC have?

Thank you for the quick response.

* System I'm testing this on is a Thinkpad T61 w/ 3GB of RAM.
* I have just been using the default option #1 for Parted: Default settings (Runs from RAM).
* the only PC* menu item I can find is 'PCMan File Manger' under System Tools

I did compare the MD5 for the mybcd.com version of the download, and it does match up.

@ jonnykelly
Try the second option. It seems that Parted Magic can't find your USB drive again to copy the modules from /pmagic/pmodules/.

That was the trick. Thank you.

For what it's worth I've been doing this from CDRom all along, not USB. It is a SATA CD drive (internal) if that makes any difference.

Can you check if you have a /pmagic dir on another partition than on your CD (in C:\ or whatever). This can make Parted Magic confused. If you find a /pmagic dir, remove it and try the 'RAM' option again.

I do not have a pmagic on c:. And there is not one present on the mount point for that drive when using the 1st boot option.

When using the 2nd boot option, I do appear to have one at that mount point (/media/sda1), but that's the boot option under which I *do* have fprot available to me.

Try the boot to RAM entry again, but add noumount to the boot entry.
