Weird behaviour

2001-02-02 Thread Ollivier Robert
Hi, I just upgraded with cvsup a June, 4th machine to the latest current and after installworld and buidling a new kernel, the damn thing boots weirdly. After /boot/loader, the kernel seems to boot but doesn't display anything. There's activity on the SCSI bus and on the disks but I can't see

Update to my previous mail: trying a PRE_SMPNG kernel doesn't change anything, it still displays nothing. I've also updated my /boot/loader and bootblocks. Still no idea? Are you running a stripped down kernel? or generic? There's a problem with kernels that are too large not booting.

Watch your devfs permissions in driver make_dev calls

Driver developers! As you probably know by now, Poul-Henning has enabled DEVFS in the GENERIC kernel on FreeBSD 5.0-CURRENT. This is a strong feature and it's great to see it getting brought back to life. However! Many of consumers of make_dev() have chosen their default permissions somewhat

With devfs "default" in -current, I have a question about permissions. I know that rc.devfs will set up custom permissions at boot... But what about a device that detaches? When you re-attach, it goes back to the default permissions. This is a bit annoying; is there a workaround for it? Should

I've been using devfs for a long time without problems. I had device vn in my kernel conf since the pre-devfs days, and today I needed to use a vn device to build picobsd. Lo and behold, I don't have any vn devices of any sort in /dev. I tried 'vnconfig -c /dev/vn0' but it also complained
