I have created a floppy diskette image. When I run the mountimg utility, I found that not all the files appeared. Also, there were times that when I wanted to display the contents of a directory, the following error occurred:
ls: readdir of ‘archive’ failed (Invalid argument).
Other times I would not able to see the files in the directory and the error would be “corrupted file systems”.
I see that mountimg is an unsupported utility. I also saw the utility will exit if the file is fragmented. I created the image file by typing the following:
cp /dev/fd0 /tmp/archive.img.
Then a typed as a superuser the following:
mountimg -c -m /tmp/archive_1 -v archive.img
I don’t know if there was fragmentation on the floppy image file because there were no errors displayed.
I also use WinImage on my Windows box to create floppy images of the same QNX floppy diskette. I had the same problems mentioned earlier.
Does anyone know if there are issues with “mountimg” utility and if there are any work around.
