SubjectRe: moving affs + RDB partition support to staging?
From
Date
It's more likely the filesystem unless I didn't get the RDBs up to 3.1 status. I 
am pretty damn sure I did as I had an 18 gigabyte disk I was using at the time.
And I made sure it would mount with Linux. Files greater than 2 gigs were sure
to get messed up. But that was not RDBs. The disk had 9 gigs worth of AFS
partitions and 9 gigs worth of SFS partitions. The big SFS partition was most of
the 9 gigabytes. (The hdf file is 8,932,818,944 bytes.) There was a tiny system
partition on it. It used some of Bill Hawes' goodies to overlay some useful paths.

I'm not sure the machine still boots. The disk in question no longer spins up.
