DOSFS 0.87 required

Post by metaluna »

I've gotten the Unipod on my Risc PC with RiscOS 6.20, reading USB sticks, but the filenames are all truncated to 8 characters, all capitals.
The same issue is described here:
https://comp.sys.acorn.misc.narkive.com ... ory-sticks

Apparently the DOSFS 0.87 module would solve this for me.
I have looked online (Google wasn't my friend) but can't find it.
Would some kind person point me to a source or provide one for me?
Thanks, Chris.

Have you tried using FAT32FS instead of DOSFS?

Thank you for this Sirbod, I've put on Fat32FS but !MASSFS wants to use DOSFS and gives me an error when it's not there.
Has anyone got access to DOSFS 0.87 that they could share?

I've got some image files downloaded of RISC OS Pi installs and searching one of them (from 2012) shows up DOSFS 0.95 in the file, so perhaps someone with a working RO Pi install can extract it from the installed modules?

I did have a go at chopping the DOSFS module out of the RISC OS image file, but had to guess exactly where it started. After a few attempts I did get it recognised without the RISC PC falling over with an "illegal header in module" error, or crashing altogether, but then I got "ROM application DOSFS cannot be RAM loaded".

The DOSFS module in ROM (this will be true of many RISC OS 5 ROM modules) will be linked at build-time against that specific ROM's SharedCLibrary I suspect.

Yes, you won't be able to pull DOSFS from a ROM and use it as its a C Module and is statically linked.

The most recent non-ROM build of DOSFS I have is 0.85, which is included in RISC OS 3.20, but that's probably not going to be of use under RISC OS 6.20

Sirbod, thank you so much. DOSFS 0.85 worked. I do indeed now get lower case and full filenames with RISC OS 6.20 from my FAT formatted USB stick.
Thanks also to Beebmaster and SKS1.
