HDD image size error..

Postby xc8 » Sat Oct 06, 2018 1:58 pm

Hi,

Using hatari 2.1.0 under ubuntu x64 , I am getting this error:

"Unable to get size of HD image file"

I did a quick search on google, looks like this issue had something to do with big (over 4GB) HDD images
but in my case I m getting this error even on a small (100MB) image. Any ideas?

Looks like to me issue with linux + hatari, as I don't get this error under a windoze setup.

thx

chris

Do you actually have an image file with the *exact* name of what is shown in the error message?

thx for the help...
BTW I figure what was the problem , the error in fact displayed as filename a " ' ' " , yes, an empty filename!
Then I realised that it displayed the same error even when I removed all the HDD setup from the config screen.

Well, so as a last option I removed the config file , problem solved, seems to me corruption of the cfg... weird

If you still have the broken config file somewhere, could you attach it here?
