Hi I have previously reported an inability to get my amd Freebsd 6.1 system to recognize a drive and am wondering if it is because the relevant device node is not in /dev. having said that I am unsure of what I need to be looking for or how to create it.
here are the drives I have got: (NB Physical Location is is what I use to identify the machine bay in which it is located!) Western Digital WD2000JD Physical location A SATA ad0 is a Western Digital WD2000JB-00KFA0 08.05J08 Physical location B IDE ata-0master UDMA100 ad4 is a Seagate ST3160827AS 3.42 ata2 -master SATA150 acd0 is a CDRW <LITE-ON CD-RW SOHR-5239S/2s03> at ata0-slave UDMA33 CMOS reports IDE Channel 0 Master WDC WD2000JB IDE Channel 0 Slave LITE-ON CD-RW SOHR IDE Channel 1Master [None] IDE Channel 1 Slave [None] IDE Channel 2 Master [None] IDE Channel 3 Master WDC WD2000JD IDE Channel 4 Master [None] IDE Channel 5 Master ST3160827As In /dev I have ad0, ad0s1 & ad0s1a >thru e ata da0 & da1 I do not gave any others that appear to be relevant to drives. Question is 1. What device node names need to be in /dev. 2. How do I create any missing ones. I have looked at the man pages but I find them a bit terse for my understanding Thanks David _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
