I've never had trouble reading any IRIX disks (or install media, for
that matter) formatted with EFS under Linux, unless the filesystem was
already corrupted. I use Linux's EFS support fairly frequently (some
of the IRIX install media are EFS), since I use Linux as a netinstall
server for IRIX. Works fine in 2.4.x and 2.6.x .
