Good to know, I'll try multiple partitions again.
Things were going well with my version, until I added the second drive.
_something_ is causing trouble when my Toshiba drive is opened, yet works fine when the SPCC drive is queried. I suspect interrupts, but so far it's been hard to find..
I am tempted to ask if you'd be willing to share code, but I don't want to give up quite so easily. There's value in me tearing down this thing until I figure it out!
And I just found out that a soft-reboot after running your driver _fixes_ the problem I'm having with the Toshiba, so that's got me thinking more about the details.
Sometimes I really wonder why I enjoy coding! ;)
Great job. I'll try multiple partitions again soon.

Yes, only one unit is supported far. And that would be the first device it encounters.
I have personally tested up to 8 partitions. A combination of DOS/07 (FFS), NGFS/01, SFS/00 and SFS/02. Something to keep on mind is the partition size limitation of DOS/xx and SFS/00. This is 128GB or lower iirc. But there's a nice overview table on wiki.amigaos.net.

Works well here so far.
As mentioned in readme, only works on first NVME drive found, but it doesn't choke on the second one, it's just ignored.
Some issue with multiple partitions, it seems I can only access the first one.. but it might be something I did wrong..
Amazing! I'll keep working on my own, but this is a real motivator!

Meaning the SSD must be present, then install the driver, then add it to Kicklayout. Got it.

V53.1 issue. Don't add driver to kick layout before hardware is installed. Otherwise Amigaos4 might halt during boot.

Even that this is the first release and the advice has been to make a careful choice of using this or not, the idea behind it is very interesting and promising. It would be better if the developer behind this driver was working closely with A-EON or Hyperion, or both of them, in order to create a proper version of this concept. This concept is undoubtly important and it has to be done in the right way. I love the attempt of doing this and this is very much how it should be done. But please team up with A-EON and Hyperion to make a proper driver out of this one. Keep up the excellent work!
