HowTo mount all Solaris (sun) ufs slices under Linux?
Question for a Sun Wizard:

From Linux x86, how to mount all of the slices from a Solaris sun CD? (Trying to copy Solaris installation files onto a Linux server, specifically, the sun4m files on Slice 3).

Linux 2.6.5-7
cdrom/cdrecorder at /dev/hdc

# mount /dev/hdc /mount/point
works, but only mounts part of the CD's contents (slice 0, perhaps?)


# mount -oufstype=sun /dev/hdc(n) /mount/point
- where (n) is anything from 1 to 16... reports:

mount: block device /dev/hdc13 is write-protected, mounting read-only
mount: /dev/hdc13 is not a valid block device

... but mounts nothing

Got a feeling this has something to do with scsi vs ide module interaction; will have to research.

Seems to me we've done this in the past, but don't remember what we did - this is a good argument for keepting better notes!

I'm quite sure you can't mount sparc ufs slices on an intel box, as they have different endianness.
