I run my colinux from my notebook, connected to an usb drive that contains the cobd files (4Gb for cobd0, 512Mb on cobd1 used for swap). Everything looks fine on the install. I'm running kde out of a colinux service+cygwin/x and it works like a charm. I mistakenly unplugged the usb drive, and then forcefuly closed the process (because it hanged up on me). After that, running the daemon will report that the cobd files could not be found. I tried some things that didn't work (like copying the files around, etc). I finally reinstalled the soft (without the images) and my old images went back to working. I think that a more helpful message (if possible) could be useful, or getting rid of the bug or posting it on the wiki. Either will work for me. I lost the error message (sorry for that). I can try to reproduce if needed. I run on WinXp on a Thinkpad T43 with 1Gb ram. email@example.com.
