sorry for asking, but I did not read on Your page,
whether the IRIX efs is supported now. I didn't
read a ~fs/subdirectory in the 2.1.122 i386 kernel that
made me expecting it. If I am wrong stop reading
and tell me, please (maybe I looked in the wrong place).
I have a tiny difficulty: My Indy has a disk pack,
that is sometimes connected to it, but sometimes
connected to my i486 Linuxbox (the cd-burner).
In this "disk pack" is a DAT drive and a removable
SCSI disk (and some more). This disk maybe
replaced by other disks (same mounting frame).
Unfortunately some of my disks are "ext2"
and some are "efs". Needless to say,
I have several of those disks frequently formatted.
I would now like to know what is on my disk,
at least reading the partition table. I started modifying
the fdisk (last log entry 980610; in rpm util-2.6-18).
I didn't copy anything, but I read SGI's header files.
I currently do not expect to find the time writing
the fs drivers, but maybe I am able to write a partitioner.
Now my questions:
1. Is legal what I do?
2. May I go public with this? (what conditions)
3. Is there already someone working on this?
4. How to submit my contributions?
I would like to hear from You
