Assuming that you have CF card, that already has been used within an Amiga, you'll need to:
  • locate device for your inserted card - you could use dmesg information (most probably it will be /dev/sdx, where 'x' is the letter for the device),
  • change permission for the device, so that user which is running fs-uae can access the CF device,
  • add to FS-UAE config the line
    Code:
    hard_drive_Y_controller = ide0
    hard_drive_Y = /dev/sdx
    where 'Y' is the drive number, depending on your existing configuration, presumably 0,
  • run fs-uae.

lsblk

dmesg:
sdc: RDSK (512) sdc1 (DOS^C)(res 2 spb 1) sdc2 (DOS^C)(res 2 spb 1) sdc3 (DOS^C)(res 2 spb 1)


Hello all ,

I do not know myself so well
Is that correct so far ?

Greetings

If you're aiming to put on a real amiga, I would add:
hard_drive_0_type = rdb

Also, if you get an error when launching fs-uae that the device cannot be found, you may need to run in a terminal: chmod 777 /dev/sdc

Yup!

Here is mine SD 8GB flashcard, where I have shared AmigaOS and Debian:
Code:
sdc: RDSK (512) sdc1 (DOS^C)(res 2 spb 1) sdc2 (DOS^C)(res 2 spb 1) sdc3 (LNX^@)(res 2 spb 1)
Note, that fdisk/cfdisk will not be able to recognize RDB partition table (at least for me) only parted/gparted was capable of doing so.

As for the permission.
Code:
 ~ # ls -l /dev/sdc*
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 32 01-29 07:10 /dev/sdc
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 33 01-29 07:10 /dev/sdc1
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 34 01-29 07:10 /dev/sdc2
brw-rw---- 1 root disk 8, 35 01-29 07:10 /dev/sdc3
In my case, only
root
and everyone in group
disk
can access devices for this flashcard. So either I'll add myself to the disk group (in
/etc/group
and
/etc/gshadow
for consistency) or just temporary change the permissions for all of those devices as root, before running fs-uae:
Code:
~ # chmod o+rw /dev/sdc*
Note, that you'll need to do this every time before running the fs-uae, since after fs-uae exit, device partitions will be re-discovered again, and permissions will be restored to defaults.

As for
hard_drive_0_type
- it's might be needed for unformatted disks, but in this case, it is fine to omit it, since type will be determined automatically.

Don't put hard_drive_0 in advanced settings - as it says, it is currently being overriden by current config.

Instead put it in custom configuration (or config file).

And if you want to use Workbench 3.1.hdf as your primary hard drive, then use hard_drive_1 instead of hard_drive_0 when adding the disk...

Be careful with modern Linux distributions when using /dev/sdX !!!

The order can change between boots, e.g. sda can become sdb or vice versa. Better use /dev/disk/by-id or /dev/disk/by-uuid (UUID probably doesn't work with Amiga harddrives) instead.

You can use
Code:
ls -lA /dev/disk/by-uuid
or
Code:
ls -lA /de/disk/by-id
in order to see where the symlinks point (e.g. to /dev/sdc).

I'd suggest, that you need to always be extra careful regarding devices.

UUID
will not work for Amiga partitions. Using
ID
is not great idea either, since depending on the card reader/slot identifier will change. That's why I would suggest to be extra careful there and check twice, before doing anything reckless to your system/drives.

Disclaimer: I'm not using fs-uae-launcher at all, so that I have no idea if it's possible to make the configuration exact as it need to be for fs-uae.

Here is my (working) example of the configuration, where I am using SD card (I've also used to use CF card, without any difference) to boot from, with defined additional "drives" which points to my filesystem under Linux:
Code:
[config]
amiga_model = A1200/020

kickstart_file = kick.rom

uae_cpu_model = 68040
zorro_iii_memory = 131072

# double check device before running, don't forget about permissions
hard_drive_0_controller = ide0
hard_drive_0 = /dev/sdc

hard_drive_1 = /tmp
hard_drive_1_label = z
If you want to boot from hardfile/directory, you will need to change the indexes, like:
Code:
hard_drive_0 = workbench.hdf


hard_drive_1_controller = ide0
hard_drive_1 = /dev/sdc
HTH.
