Need to compile a Linux kernel so that it can use the FATX file system...


The problem is that I cant find where the FATX file system is. I can see all the other ones like vfat, ext2, ext3, etc, but I cant find FATX. Is it in some obscure place or do I have to do something special to get it in there?

I thought that I knew a lot about filesystems, but this one has me stumped. What's FATX????

I've heard of FAT12(floppies), FAT16(16 bit, used for Win 95B and before), FAT32 (Win98 and foreward -32 bit). What's FATX?

FATX is a butchered DOS FAT file system. It's for XBox.

Oh hahaha.. I was thinking you meant the X as a wildcard.. like for fat32 and fat16.. etc..

Your probably not going to get any support for FATX out of a kernel as of yet.. perhaps you could do the open source community a favor and write in the support for it, submit it to Linus..

People have done it. They just dont seem to be all that willing to come forth with the information.

http://www.xbox-linux.org/
http://cvs.xbox-linux.org/viewcvs.py...mwell/fs/fatx/

Two places that you might find your answer. The second one is the cvs site with the modules and the makefile, it seems.

Thanks but I've tried xbox-linux.org before and they didnt have anything. That other site has something to do with Cromwell, which is a replacement BIOS for the xbox. Basically it's the new BIOS in the xbox that you have to flash to it if you want to use Linux on it.

We are almost there Nebetsu. It has been a pleasure working with you on this project, and when completed the results will be posted, along with the steps on how to apply fatx to the kernel.
