Protection Bits

I have installed a partition type 76 on my harddrive which the latest WinUae (onWin2K)detects I have installed onto that AmigaOS3.9, however I cannot set the protection bits from the shell.Ihave tried PROTECT SYS: +W ALL and PROTECT SYS: RWED ADD ALL and both give an error message (object is not of required type}The only bits that are set is R and E. Where am I going wrong

Thanks

My guess would be that if it's installed to a PC drive, the Windows attributes have priority. It's probably possible if it were installed to an HDF image.

If AmigaOS is installed on a Windows partition, then you can only set the protection bits that can be adequately mapped to the Window's flags. This is mentioned somewhere in the docs. Twistin' is right, a HDF will solve that problem.

Then again, I'm not sure "Object not of required type" is caused by this? What is the type of the file you are trying to alter (data file, executable etc)?

Do you get the same error without any parameters and does the protect-command work on files/directories on RAM disk? (Testing with RAM disk is usually good UAE filesystem compatibility test but not in this case because HDFs and harddisks don't need UAE filesystem..)

Your protect-command is probably broken...

__uaefsdb-files are used to store protection flags and comments on virtual directory harddisks.

Ah, thank you - I'd completely forgotten about that addition. Knowledge base updated

Thanks everyone for your replies, I have probably installed it incorrectly. From the OS3.9 cd I created an emergency disk adf, then I formatted the hard drive from it,then I installed OS3.9 the result being that only the R and E bits were set.
I have reinstalled it this way:
Used the adf`s created from my original Workbench 3.0 and HD-install disks to install OS 3.0.
Installed Idefix97 for the CD
Upgraded from OS3.0 to OS3.9 using the OS3.9 CD.
A perfect installation and all protection bits are now set correctly.
Thanks again for your replies
