By default the service programs are created with manual start option. To start the services start cxvfsmgr service. The root file system is now available from Windows V: drive. Typical startup would involve:
1. Start the cxvfsmgr service, which will in turn start the core services cxvfs, cxnfs.
2. The root file system is now available as V: drive and the command
line programs are now available in V:\bin directory. Add this to the
path environment variable to execute them.
3. You may use dmesg command to view the kernel startup messages.
C:\> net start cxvfsmgr The CROSSMETA Manager service is starting. The CROSSMETA Manager service was started successfully. C:\> set path=%path%;v:\bin C:\> mount -a C:\> mount C:\> dmesg
In the event the root file system was not cleanly shutdown, the root file system will be mounted for read only access. To repair the root file system run fsck on /dev/loop0. After this follow the instructions on how to stop and restart the drivers.
C:\> mount -a C:\> fsck –y /dev/loop0
To stop the file system drivers, make sure there are no other programs using the files in V: drive. If umountall fails with error status, then it isnot possible to stop the file system drivers. Try to end the programs that may be using the V: drive and then retry unmounting all the file systems.
Stopping cxvfs driver works only in Windows 2000. It is not possible to unload the core cxvfs driver from Windows 2003 onwards. But you can stop/unload other drivers (cxnfs,xfs,ext2fs,reiserfs) if they are not busy.
C:\> net stop cxvfsmgr CROSSMETA manager service stopped successfully C:\Program Files\crossmeta:\> unmountall C:\> net stop cxvfs
