does a PFS formatted floppy hold anymore than 880K?

No

Here's an hypothetical question for you Piru.

If PFS was released under a BSD/MIT/APL like licence and assuming it's all written in C, what would be the odds that we'd see it in a future release of MorphOS?

I'd be 100% certain. I'd port it myself.

Phwoar, that's what I like to hear! :)

Here's hoping for one of those licences!

Why not use a well established filesystem that support extensions, and create extension to take care of amiga filesystem protection bits? There's already ext3 filesystem support in MorphOS, and ext3 supports arbitrary attributes. I can imagine XFS also does, and other filesystems as well.

I was having this very same conversation just yesterday with Karlos.

I suggested UFS2 due to it's BSD licence too, or even the very sexy OpenBFS from Haiku.

ufs2 is a bit of a kludge and softupdate support is a pain in the ass. xfs requires a pretty heavy vfs layer and support. openbfs has know issues in order to be compatabile with beos (16bit runs). Personally I love and use JFS.

The origins of BFS and SFS are not that different. The author of BFS wrote a book on his work, which served as more than inspiration for writing SFS. You can use SFS today, but OpenBFS would still have to be ported ;)

XFS also is a certified big iron file system. It's not just the vfs layer, XFS also eats memory like popcorn. If you really want to do something else with your desktop computer while it's merely tending to your files, you might want to choose a different kind of file system.

Well... I see nothing in this thread indicating PFS4 is anything but some planned update that never happened, who exactly are you expecting to develop PFS4?
I'm not expecting, but hoping that mr. Pelt would develop it.

@bamiga: given it was impossible to contact him all these years to get a licence, and that he has not found a time to to open the sources since half a year, i dont know on what you are basing your hopes. in general this community always tends to hope for too much imo.

We are talking on EAB about to give some money to Michiel for getting the source of PFS3 !

We have 70 euros in the piggybank for Gulliver :
Cosmos = 40 euros
mfilos = 30 euros


Please, be generous...

We must reach about 600 euros, that's a lot of money : so, Michiel will be happy !
