: I am trying to install Linux on my second hard drive /dev/hdb, and fdisk
: cannot read it. I am using Slackware 2.2 (1.1.59). The bootup sequence
: seems to recognize the disk, but it cannot access it. When looking at the
: /dev directory, it seems kind of strange. All /dev/hda* devices are in
: yellow (what does this mean?), but the hdb* devices, with the exception
: of /dev/hda6 are in either grey or brown. What gives?
Run the MAKEDEV script in /usr/src/linux/drivers/block.
(Or use mknod by hand to recreate your device nodes.)
