[hatari-users] Hatari hard disk emulation does not work with raw block devices

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/hatari-users Archives ]

I am using SD cards as storage media on my the STE via the Ultrasatan Controller. Copying a sd card via dd allows me to start hatari with the disk image the following way:

hatari --acsi disk.img

Now I was thinking such call would also work

hatari --acsi /dev/sdb

but hatari fails with

Error while parsing argument "/dev/sdb" for option "--acsi":
Given file doesn't exist (or has wrong file permissions)!

I have seen other emulators working with raw devices like qemu
As I am sure I have the right permission ( I can "stat" and "dd" the block device) what is exactly the pb there ?
