Finally fixed.. Madness!!

So this was all of my own insanity.

The aranym likes to boot from 'C'.
The 'C' drive can be mapped to anywhere in the world, for the purposes of boot.

My aranym config had:

[HOSTFS]
E = drive_c

(leaving nothing set for 'C') because that's how you let the 'gem' (ide0) partitions boot stuff for you.

But that means all my config (stored in drive_c/mint/xxxx/mint.cnf) is ignored..

So to boot with /Users/your-name-here/Documents/Aranym_files/drive_c/auto (local files on the mac side).
do:

[HOSTFS]
C = drive_c
or
[HOSTFS]
C = /Users/your-name-here/Documents/Aranym_files/drive_c

(and also repeat the same thing again for 'E' .. otherwise we end up with a mint conf that refers to stuff on 'E' which also doesn't exist and we get infinte reboots).

and we're back to programming... 

(except I'm running an old xaaes and the mouse pointer is broken..) 

Just out of curiosity, I changed the ByteSwap = No to a Yes..
and got alot more of the following:

pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root
pid  11 (desktop): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid  11 (desktop): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46
pid  10 (taskbar): nfs_root
pid  10 (taskbar): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid  10 (taskbar): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid  10 (taskbar): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid  10 (taskbar): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid  10 (taskbar): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid  10 (taskbar): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46

and then switched it back to NO.

and still got one...

pid   0 (MiNT): nfs_root
pid   0 (MiNT): nfs_root(3) -> ENXIO
pid   0 (MiNT): Minix-FS (D): m_root enter
pid   0 (MiNT): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity enter.
pid   0 (MiNT): Minix-FS (D): invalid MAGIC in 1.
pid   0 (MiNT): Minix-FS (D): minix_sanity leave r = -46
pid   0 (MiNT): Minix-FS (D): m_root leave -46
pid   0 (MiNT): Ext2-FS [D]: WARNING: mounting unchecked fs, running e2fsck is recommended
pid   1 (xaloader): run_km(\c\mint\1-17-0\xaaes\xaaes.km) ok (bp 0x6EDC0E0)!

but the file system is working normally (ie; good).  I did eventually find e2fsck, but I'm no expert on specifying the parameters for that..
