I have a Solaris 2.4 x86 machine, with a SCSI disk (no networking).
I want to transfer all the files over to a Linux disk (ext2 file system)
There is no networking, so cannot simply rcopy, NFS etc..
I can get Linux to see the SCSI disk, but when I try to look
at partitions, there is only one (/dev/sda2) which itself has
many internal partitions.
Linux is throwing up * numbers, and warnings, showing that
it doesn't quite understand what to do with them - fdisk is complaining
about the partitions!
It is trying to tell me that the 1st partition is /dev/sda21 , 2nd is /dev/sda22
etc.. which is clearly nonsense.
The Solaris book refers to the file system as "UFS, combining BSD Fast
File System (BSD FFS) and the 4.3 Tahoe fast file system" (gulp)
a) Somehow work out how wot get Linux to see the Solaris disk properly
b) Work out another method of sucking the files over to another (Linux)
Solution A is obviously best, but may be impossible (help please?).
otherwise, if anyone can think of a good way to transfer 1GByte of
stuff easily between Solaris and Linux machines, please let me know.
Floppes or serial cables are both very tedious with 1GByte of data!
(I don't really want to start configuring Solaris networking)
