I'm working on my R5000 Indy can mount second disk as root filesystem.
I've created ext2 filesystem from my i486-based Linux box and I connected
it to my Indy as the second drive. Then I booted vmlinux-indy-2.1.67
(made by Ralf) from the first disk on my Indy, mounted nfs-root filesystem
which is made by Ralf I know.
I can mount both the first disk(efs) and the second one(ext2).
However, when I try to invoke rpm which is made by Alan(libc/ld workaround
version), I get efs read error as follows:
efs: read error in indirect extents
attempt to access beyond end of device
08:01 rw=0, want=1207011792, limit=1965937
Do you think something wrong with my IRIX efs partition? When I mount
IRIX root partition, I can invoke some IRIX command(like ls, cp).
Anyway, why root-be-0.00.cpio.gz doesn't contain rpm binary?
I think rpm binary should be in root-be-0.00.cpio.gz.
