Hello all,

before trying to compile unixfs and macfuse on my quad G5 running 10.5:

does someone know if it is possible to mount actual hardware with this setup. i have a 2930U card in a pci-express adapter running fine with mac formatted disks, but UFS formatted nextstep disks are not recognized.

Because of failing scsi drives i would like to make disk images of the drives i have

This might not be the solution you're looking for, but if you network your NeXT to your mac via crossover cable or equivalent, you can read-only mount the next hd with Macfusion using ftpfs. It's not fast, but it does work. Once mounted, you can make an image. This is what I do.

But from your post, it looks like you're connecting your SCSI HDD directly to your Mac and want to mount it locally. Maybe this thread could help: http://alperakcan.org/?open=projects&project=fuse-ext2 This is how to mount an ext2 formatted disk. I have not tried this. Let us know how it works out and please post a how-to. I'm sure there are others who would like to do this.

Brian

Well,
i plunged into the deep and installed macfuse and unixfs. That partially worked.

Code:

Zaphod:/ mkdir /next
Zaphod:/ sudo chown root:wheel /next

Zaphod:/ simon$ sudo ./ufs --dmg /dev/rdisk1 --type nextstep /next
kextload: /Library/Filesystems/fusefs.fs/Support/fusefs.kext loaded successfully
Zaphod:/ simon$ cd /next
cd: error retrieving current directory: getcwd: cannot access parent directories: No such file or directory



and when issuing mount i get the following:
Code:

Zaphod:/ simon$ mount
/dev/disk0s3 on / (hfs, local, journaled)
devfs on /dev (devfs, local)
fdesc on /dev (fdesc, union)
map -hosts on /net (autofs, automounted)
map auto_home on /home (autofs, automounted)
nextstep File System on /next (fusefs, read-only, synchronous)


what am i doing wrong?
