Some installation observations

Reported by: bobmcl Owned by: dazarewicz
Priority: minor Milestone: Release 4.00
Component: ACPI PSD Version: 3.21.02
Keywords: Cc:

Description

  1. I have two eCS systems on the same PC. The install changed the config.sys on both systems.
  2. When the config.sys is updated every line is rewritten in capitals. It would be nice if the unaffected lines were untouched.
  3. It would help any recovery situations to have the original files kept in a directory with a command file to put them back.
  4. Same for the debug install. How do we reset back to non-debug.

These aren't complaints, just comments. Keep up the good work.

Replying to bobmcl:

  1. I have two eCS systems on the same PC. The install changed the config.sys on both systems.

If the checkbox is checked to modify the CONFIG.SYS, then it will change the config.sys. That is the way it is supposed to work.

  1. When the config.sys is updated every line is rewritten in capitals. It would be nice if the unaffected lines were untouched.

The ACPI installer does not rewrite the file in all capitals. Some other program must have done this.

  1. It would help any recovery situations to have the original files kept in a directory with a command file to put them back.

The only way to recover is to do a backup first. I will put a note to this effect in the readme.

  1. Same for the debug install. How do we reset back to non-debug.

Just re-install the package.

re point 1. I should have been clearer. The eCS install puts the acpi.psd entry about 5 lines down. Both of the installed partitions were like this. After I installed 3.21.02 on only the c: partition both configs had been changed and had the acpi.psd entry at the top. re point 2. I will retry this. Thank you for information on points 3 and 4.

Yes, that is the way it works. It puts/moves the ACPI and APM lines at the top of the file. I suppose I could be smarter about were to put them, but it doesn't really matter and you can move them after the install.

Thanks for the feedback. Improvements have already been made to the installer and you will see them in future releases.
