    @jPV

    You are absolutely right - and I had the same idea :) But no luck :(

    I can access the system partition without any problems. And yes, I tried to find dirs or files with a large size. But I did not.

    I guess something went wrong because of the window which appeared saying: "Error while checking the system. Block 10990838 invalid identifier"

    This, by the way, also comes, if I boot via USB stick during the selection of language and keyboard.

    I do not know if this partition has a different filesystem because I bought it ready-to-use. I will try the info command, suggested by you. And I will also ask the retailer if they can tell me.

    Thanks so far!

    If you can boot via a USB stick, and get MorphOS to run, even if it is a basic ready-to-install version, then there will be a version of SFS doctor on the USB stick drive. :-)

    So, if you use SFSDoctor on the unreadable volume, then SFSDoctor will try to salvage/save/fix the volume, and I have had usually good experiences with salvaging HDDs using the program. ;-)

    If you've got to the MorphOS screen then you can almost certainly try out SFS Doctor on the HDD volume and see if you can salvage it, by running SFSDoctor, even if you cannot access it directly from Ambient to save what you can before you try to salvage/run SFSDoctor.

    Give it a try, if you can, as you don't seem to have anything to lose - well not more than you've already lost ! 8-D

    PS: The info about system partition said:
    "Filesystem: FFS LNFS"

    And: If I boot via boot stick I get the error message:
    "error validating System
    Block 10990838 bad header type"

    So, what would you say? Should I give SFSDoctor a try...?

    I don't want to be that guy, but can you guys please start a new thread as the last couple of posts has zero to do with Wayfarer.

    You are absolutely right. I have already asked the mods to move it (because if I just open a new thread, the context will be lost).
    Sorry!
    (Although of course I was also disappointed about your post because it provides no help..;)

    In order to trash this thread no longer with my problem, I would suggest:
    If anyone has any further idea to help me, then I would be really grateful if this one send me a PM.
    Thanks a lot! I have been using MorphOS only for a short time so I am not very experienced. Every help is welcome.

    If you've got a Fast FileSystem hard drive partition then I don't think SFSDoctor is going to be of any use. I cannot be sure of that as I've never used a MorphOS system with an "alien" filesystem, as I always use SFS for MorphOS partitions, though I sometimes have FAT and basic Mac partitions to allow me to swap data between systems.

    I used to use DiskSalv on Amiga systems, but I'm not sure what recovery tools for HDDs there are for Amiga FFS filesystems, with long-filename support, especially if the filesystem is from an OS4.x partition.

    What hardware are you running your MorphOS system on anyway, as I can't see where you mentioned that, maybe I've overlooked it, but I couldn't see it mentioned. :-?

    As I mentioned before if it's a FFS partition then SFSDoctor doesn't sound like the tool to recover an "alien" partition, you need a tool that can recover a LongFilename FFS partition, which I don't think SFSDoctor can fix.

    Yeah, SFSDoctor is for the SFS, not for FFS, so it's no help here.

    I think that 68k FFS repair software only works partitions under 2GB size... and if it really is 8GB in this case, I wouldn't dare to try.

    FFS has the infamous "validating" feature... the filesystem breaks easily when you reboot or crash while writing into it, and then it has an internal feature that should validate the drive back to the working state. The validating process used to take a looong time, at least on 68k Amigas. The partition is read-only while validating and constant processing slows all other things too.

    It sounds that there's error while it tries to validate the partition now and it can't complete the task. It happened time to time on 68k Amigas and then you had some repair tools, which were successful in most cases... but as said, they are probably outdated now, but I'd try to find out if there are more modern tools for OS4 or so...

    In any case, if you have important stuff there, make backups. If you have to re-format it, it might be better to use SFS for MorphOS partition.

    Going back to topic:

    Work on Wayfarer 3 is progressing steadily. As with the change from v1 to v2, this implies moving to a more recent WebKit. In this case, this would be the current stable WebKitGTK, meaning the engine would be about half a year newer than in Wayfarer 2. That puts it at September last year for last feature changes from main.

    You and those other people who have contributed have certainly worked hard for us all on this project, with more work to come, so many thanks to all who've helped. 8-)

    Fantastic, to be keeping up with internet browser engines that would otherwise be out of reach, if we didn't have you and your team to enhance our OS, so it is all really impressive. 8-D

    @Amigaharry2: it really sounds like you have some networking / hardware / system-wide issue.

    Tried again. It loads about 80%, then stops for 5-8 minutes and finishis loading after.....
    During this time cannot see higher CPU-aktivity or network-aktivity. Very strange - happens only on this website....

    OK, so I'm writing this using Wayfarer 3... Generally more things work than I've expected. Had to fix pixel format conversions for example, but it seems that most of the JavaScript is fine - Void Linux JS patches are still there and working. I got OffscreenCanvas to work, which I couldn't get working with Wayfarer 2. Surprisingly, Cloudflare browser check appears to pass now (don't hold your breath, they may break it at will). One thing that so far refuses to work is Google Street View (renders all black). Media playback appears to work, and I was indeed able to repro the same issues with seeking in iOS mode as was reported here. Will take a look at that next I suppose...

    @ jacadcaps - Thanks for the initial, and very optimistic sounding update for Wayfarer v3. 8-)
