I've gotten my hands here recently on an R5k Indy, with IRIX 6.5 and
a 2 gb HD. Unfortunately, the seller didn't leave me with a root
password (Yuck). So, I figured my first course of action would be to
mount the drive up in My Linux/XFS box and change the /etc/passwd
But, after checking out the archives, it seems that I'm falling
victim to the page size restriction. Now, here are my questions:
1. What is the status of the 2.5.16 patch? Has it overcome this
problem yet? (I'm already building the 2.5.16 kernel, so I'll
peobably find out, unless there is some fiddling to be done)
2. Is there any way to check what the block size of the disk is from
Linux? If not, could I tell from the console in Irix? I ask because
I've got some sparcs and alphas, and if there's a pretty good chance
it might be 8k, I'll build them a new kernel.
Thanks a lot!
And by the way, I run XFS on several of my systems, and I gotta say,
keep up the good work!
