Re: Need Extent File System (EFS) kernel driver

Thanks, I only need to grab the files once so I think in this instance a live distro environment is best.

I've just fired up my old HP laptop with Manjaro and it seems to have efs support built in.

Thank you.

Need Extent File System (EFS) kernel driver

Hi, I need to somehow get efs filesystem support on my raspi to mount some old SGI IRIX .img files. Debian seems to still have kernel support for the filetype but it's not made it over to the Raspi kernel...not surprised though as just about nobody needs support for this filetype anymore.

Re: RP zero as server to SGI workstation

Thanks both, it's a bit of a nostalgia trip thing for me as I dearly wanted to use one of these after school in 1997. So roll on 21 years and a then $48,000 workstation is bought for £50!

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

Jacques here and looking to see how I can meld a RasPi with some vintage SGI gear. Looking to come up with a low power internal 'server' that will act as an NFS server and provide modern web browsing via remote desktop. HTTPS websites are no longer accessible on good old IRIX. :?

RP zero as server to SGI workstation

Hi, I'm a hobbyist user of old SGI workstations and software, I currently have an Octane and O2 that I use for some vintage 3D software. My SGIs are currently served via a Debian install on a spare drive in my dual Xeon 2010 MacPro. In order to reduce my electrical footprint, I thought about setting...
