2 TODO plan

  • Implement initial writing support for UDF plain disks (in progress)

3 How to test

You need Bazaar (version control system) to download sources.

3.1 Download sources from my branch

bzr branch lp:~medvedeva-julia/helenos/udf helenos

3.2 Build cross-platform compiler

Building IA32 compiler (GCC) You should to install all requirements (list will be provided by

cd helenos/tools
sudo ./ ia32

3.3 Compile sources

cd helenos
make PROFILE=ia32

3.4 Create UDF disk image under Linux (Optional)

To create UDF image under Linux you need to install package with UDF utilities. For example in Arch it's udftools. The package should contain the mkudffs tool.

mkudffs --media-type=hd --blocksize=512 --utf8 ./udf.img

You can also select media type: "hd" or "dvd" and blocksize: 512 or 2048 or something else.

Unless you are overwriting already existing image, you need to create an empty file first (otherwise you would get the trying to change type of multiple extents error). Following creates a 32M file:

dd if=/dev/zero of=./udf.img bs=4096 count=8192

3.5 Mount udf disk image under Linux (Optional)

You can mount the UDF image (from step 3.4) under your Linux host and copy several files into it.

mount -o loop -t udf ./udf.img /mnt/udf-mount-point

where udf.img is the image from step 3.3

3.6 Boot HelenOS with UDF disk image

To boot HelenOS run QEMU:

qemu-system-i386 -m 512 -boot d -hda udf.img -cdrom helenos/image.iso

udf.img is the UDF disk image (from step 3.4 or existing dvd.iso for example)

3.7 Mount user disk image under HelenOS

In HelenOS run a batch script to run UDF server, ATA server and mount the first ATA disk as UDF.

batch u

Then, go to the /mnt directory:

cd /mnt

and here you are :)
