Linux <-> Solaris file systems?

Post by Bruce Hewits » Thu, 25 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I'd like to read optical disks (2.6Gig MO) under linux that were written under
Solaris on a Sun work station and hence have a Solaris file system.  Anybody have
any pointers - or anybody tried this before?

Depending on where you run Linux, you most likely will be bitten
by the Big Endian/Little Endian byte(s) reversal. We have encountered
this on Solaris/Solaris X.86.

Try getting one of the 2.0.x kernels (or late 1.3.x) and compile in
the UFS filesystem support. It's read-only at the moment. Don't know
how stable it is. Heard that it's slightly broken in 2.0.x kernel, but
not so in late 1.3.x kernels. Join or have a look at the sparclinux
mailing list for more details (Try http://www.linux.ncm.com/).

Good luck!

If you still have access to the Sparc the easiest way would be to
NFS mount the MO drive on the Sparc from Linux.

1. Linux <-> Solaris file systems

I have a Pinnacle 2.6Gig MO drive on a linux system here, and want to exchange disks
with someone overseas who writes identical physical media on a 2.6Gig HP MO drive
under Solaris 2.5.

Anybody have any suggestions on how to proceed in solving this issue?

Many thanks,

Bruce
