I've seen this done before so I know it works, but it's not working for me and I can't find anything in searches. I built the drive using the builder then loaded the developer image, but Emplode crashes if I try to sync it. I'm using a 128 GB CF card in an IDE adapter set to master. Here is the terminal output:

hda: hda1 < hda5 hda6 > hda2 hda3 hda4

Has anyone gotten this to work that can describe the process?

It's the 128GB part that is the trouble.

This normally requires a Hijack kernel to have any chance of working.

EDIT: or maybe not.. it's drives LARGER than 128 * 1024 * 1024 * 1024 (128GB) that have such issues.

It appears from the posted logs that the CF card is working fine. But it also seems that the builder image hasn't done its thing. The /fids/ subdirectories are probably not there, or their partitions have not been formatted.

Try redoing the builder?
Use the "big disk" version?

Thanks! I've tried the standard builder 4x with the same result and the big builder got stuck on making the drive. How long should the big builder take to make the hda4 (I think that's the message I saw)? I left it for half an hour and it was still going.

Thanks again,
Stu

Mmmm.. not sure, but you'd think half an hour would have done it.

I haven't run a builder for maybe 6-7yrs?
Anything useful on the serial port while the builder is running?

Lots of swap space there, so it shouldn't be running out of virtual memory.

Does it really get stuck, or just pause for a very long time?

The slower CF cards I used here take forever to write to, and the inode tables involve tons of writes.

It did finally finish and all is well now! It was a combination of using the bigbuilder and giving it more time.

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
