I have a PC, installed Solarisx86 release 2.6, MS Windows NT and Redhat 5.2 on it.
I wish to access my Solaris partitions from linux.
I just finished installing kernel 2.2.0-pre4.
I compiled the kernel not using modules (because I'm afraid it interferes with my 2.0.36 installation),
with UFS filesystem support and Solaris x86 patition table support.
After booting, 'dmesg' nicely reports my Solaris partitions:
hda: hda1 hda2 <solaris: [s0] hda5 [s1] hda6 [s2] hda7 [s5] hda8 [s6] hda9 [s7] hda10 > hda3
hdc: hdc1 hdc2 <solaris: [s2] hdc5 [s4] hdc6 [s5] hdc7 [s6] hdc8 [s7] hdc9 > hdc3 hdc4 < hdc10 >
Succeeded to mount hdc9:
mount -v -t ufs -o ufstype=sun /dev/hdc9 /tmpmnt
/dev/hdc9 on /tmpmnt type ufs (rw,ufstype=sun)
Reading all files on the partition is possible, but touching a file on it results in:
touch: /tmpmnt/wim/wimpy: Read-only file system
Did anybody manage to mount ufs filesystems read/write?
