Configure your disksWith IRIX tools, create an EFS partition on your
Linux disk. Use command fx to do that. I recommend that you create the
default "root" layout on the disk (provided you have the whole second
disk for Linux). At this point, a swap partition won't be recognized. Yes, we're
working on it. The installer does include fdisk, although it is untested.
I have used fx to create to root layout on my
second drive, but when I use disk manager to try and make the EFS file system,
Disk manager changes my partition back to a user partition. I can get linux to
install doing that but linux cannot mount drive on reboot. Questions
1. How do I get mkfs_efs to work using xterm
2. Where is there more information about
configuring 2nd drive? I have read the web page about the mini-HOWTO, but I
don't have a CDROM drive and my screen doesn't have the menu's that is referred
to in the HOWTO.
