"Disabling chmod" in FAT32 partition
« on: December 29, 2005, 12:15:03 AM »

Ok
I use Fat32 in the partition with all my files that i have downloaded. but now i installed amule 2.0.3 and when i use this partition for temp and incoming files that what i see:
Code: [Select]
Temp dir is placed on a FAT32 partition. Disabling chmod to avoid useless warnings.
Incoming dir is placed on a FAT32 partition. Disabling chmod to avoid useless warnings.
;(

Ok, now I was searched the forum and I saw that people has the same problem but I didnt find the answer how to fix this! because I cant download files with aMule ! 8o

thanks for advance,
plazzmex

p.s - sorry if my english bad...

No, you didn't see that people have the problem because it is not a problem. It's just a notice, ignore it.

No! "disable chmod" just means that aMule won't set any permission flags ("chmod" = "change mode" = "change permissions") of your shared and downloaded files because FAT32 doesn't support any permissions at all. This doesn't affect the download speed in any way!

Maybe this message should be hidden by default, I think it's more confusing than useful. Or maybe it could be phrased differently, like "Temp/Incoming dir is placed on a filesystem that does not support permission flags".
