Problem with EasyOS
(05-02-2022, 11:02 AM)longpanda Wrote: This CI release should have fixed it.
I've used CI #776 to get past the dax obstacle on Easy /dax/dax.ko not found which was successful in getting to the EasyOS boot menu and process, but does not boot EasyOS 3.4.5 or 3.4.7 to the desktop.

I'm not a developer/coder; I'm just a previously Windows now longtime linux user of intermediate expertise.  My experience w/ Ventoy from linux Web has been very good/ excellent/ for dozens of linux distro/s; previously I used Win Yumi for multibooting. The purpose of this report is to rebut some information present at several pages at Ventoy which say Easy OS works w/ Ventoy.

Easy OS,
28 EasyOS

I'm not rebutting the last example in terms of that old v. of Easy, because the current v. of EasyOS is 3.4.7 and my testing has been w/ current Ventoys 1.0.51-1.074  + the Ventoy CI #776 which is 05080402. 

There are currently 2 Ventoy-related topics at the EasyOS forum, one started by someone about the /dax/dax.ko issue which I consider solved by the Ventoy CI #776, and one started by me about the /real/ problem for EasyOS and Ventoy.

Basically, the problem is that Easy's modus operandi at boot time causes it to need to write an .sfs

Quote:One-time only operation, creating a snapshot of EasyOS
This will allow future follback with the Easy Version Control Manager
Populating: /mnt/ventoy2/easyos/releases/easy-3.4.7
initrd vmlinux easy.sfs cp: write error: No space left on device
This copy failed:
cp /mnt/ventoy1/easy.sfs /mnt/ventoy2/easyos/sfs/easyos/oe/dunfell/easy_3.4.7_amd64.sfs
It is possible that the drive is failing.
Attempting to copy again...
cp: write error: No space left on device

That attempted boot was Ventoy upped to CI #776 or 05080402 which solves the failure at the dax step.
