Re: Great software !!!
apologies if it maybe slightly off-topic here.. I couldn't compile and install CDfs. On a 2.4 kernel (redhat 9) and on a 2.6 kernel (SuSe 9.3), while compiling, I had an error that is something like:

No rule to make target `modules'

I found another solution on my SuSE 2.6 kernel for old IRIX CDs:

# mount -t efs /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom/ -o loop

Reference: http://groups.google.com/group/comp.sys.sgi.admin/browse_thread/thread/b5bcc6ff90e27e6d/804ab02e5239e414

in short, use "-o loop" if you get the error:

efs: module not supported by Novell, setting U taint flag.

EFS: 1.0a - http://aeschi.ch.eu.org/efs/

EFS: device does not support 512 byte blocks

Great software !!!
I had lost hope to read some SGI's CDs on my Linux box because of this stupid 512 bytes limit that is not supported on most CD readers. Thanks to CDfs I am now able to read SGI's CDs :

1. mount -t cdfs /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom

2. cp /mnt/cdrom/whatever_name_cdfs_gives_to_the_data ~/cd_sgi

3. umount /mnt/cdrom

4. mount -t efs ~/cd_sgi /mnt/cdrom

And it works !!!

Thanks CDfs. Thank you Michiel !!!

Huh....
I wonder if this will help crack those stupid
copy-protected CDs, as in, offset past the faulty track
with dd and use the second, good one to make a new
CD image that works... Um. I just violated the DMCA.
Please disregard my entire comment.

Coolness

Okay quite simply this is goddamn cool! CD Ripping has never been so easy, and you can play Music CDs through XMMS with plugins/vis/effects applied :].
