Check if you got everything copied into your Classes:
My first install did miss to copy something and I had to compare and found something was missing.

Remove or disable? I don’t know how these glowicons are installed, but have you tried disabling “color icons” in workbench prefs?

You somehow effed up the LIBS: assign, is my guess, probably by not using the ADD keyword in user-startup somewhere.

If you open a command line shell and type “assign” and press enter, you should see many paths assigned to LIBS: - what do you see?

What does OS 3.2 use natively?

It uses the default file system ;)

The Amiga operating system has a designated "default file system" which is baked into the ROM. You can set up your hard disk/SSD/USB stick partitions to each use a different, specific file system such as PFS3 or SFS, but in the absence of you doing so, the responsibility for managing disk storage space will fall to the default file system.

If you list all the components by name which make up the Kickstart ROM contents you will find the default file system under "filesystem". This is the component which knows how to mount, read and write disks and partitions formatted using the FFS, DCFS, LNFS, etc. variations. A version of that "filesystem" component can be found on the installation disk under "L:FastFileSystem". It's basically the same thing as the "filesystem" in ROM, but can be used by HDToolbox to make partitions use that specific file system version.

What makes the default file system peculiar is that it has to support the complete documented feature set of what an Amiga file system could possibly do. This includes, for example, support for hard and soft links, file record locking, file/directory notification and even legacy API/data structure quirks which result from how dos.library expects the default file system to behave when the system starts up. This is why you cannot generally replace the default file system with a different one if you wanted to. The replacement would have to fill its shoes, which is a tall order (tall shoes, if you will).

The 3.2 feature set on the Hyperion website describes improvements to FFS to make it faster, so that seems to be the default file system.

However, if you did an upgrade or similar on an existing disk without using HDToolbox to change the filesystem in place, then your 3.2 installation will have just used whatever FS was on the drive.

Amiga Software Issues and Discussion / OS 3.9 Cannot open "resource.library"
« Last post by Michele31415 on September 23, 2021, 08:40:41 PM »
There is another thread here https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=5463.0 that descibes my problem exactly.  I got OS 2.9 running and then did an install of AmiFTP.  It worked fine - until I rebooted.  Now I get messages like:

Cannot open "resource.library", version 44
when I try to run AmiDock (although I do have that file in LIBS:) and
Can't open version 40 of gadgets/fuelgauge.gadget
when I try to run AmiFTP.(and I have that file too).

Unfortunately, even after reading that thread I still don't understand how to fix this.  One suggestion was toi replace C:SetPatch from the 3.9 CD, but my CD has no SetPatch in its C directory.  I did replace it from my USB backup but I think that was the same file (it was the same size anyway, 31.8K) and that didn't fix the problem anyway.  Another post suggests that some classes are missing somewhere but I can't tell which ones.

And a number of other programs won't start now either.  Could someone please help me out of this mess?  I'm totally stumped here.

FWIW, I'm using KS 40.63, WB 45.1 and SetPatch 44.13
FWIW2: If I boot from the Emergency 3.9 Rescue Disk, AmiDock works OK but my primary boot disk FS3: does not appear on the WB screen.

What does OS 3.2 use natively?
I had three partitions and used System: for the installation.

It had OS 3.1 on it and OS 2.1 before that.

Amiga Hardware Issues and discussion / Re: How to backup a SCSI2SD card?
« Last post by Michele31415 on September 23, 2021, 07:55:23 PM »

You can use Win32DiskImager to make backup copies of memory cards.

https://sourceforge.net/projects/win32diskimager/

To restore such an image you need a card which is at least the same size as the image. You cannot shrink the size onto a smaller card.
Ah!  Thanks very mcuh.  That looks like exactly what I needed.  It's copying the card now (at least it says it is).  It's pretty slow on my old XP machine but I don't  need to do this often.
