Has anyone heard back from Symbolics on why the 8.0.1 flod files don't work
on all the machines.
We had this problem on a 40. We were told the problem is if the new flod
files are used to create a file on a disk formatted with the old ones, you
will corrupt something such that during clear memory you get the FEP reset
I don't understand this explanation. Since when can you create files
from the FEP? Do you mean Disk Restore'ing an IFS tape? Other than
that, the FEP can only write into pre-existing files.
Sorry, I meant to say that if you are running under the new flods and create
a FEP file (e.g. :create fep file, or copying worlds), you will run into
this problem. The work around is to boot under the old flods (it will handle
it fine). Don't ask me why, but it does happen.
