The following relates to 2.5/X86/DU3
I learned Volume Manager when I first got Solaris running
almost a year ago. I've used it to access floppies in the past.
Now I can't get it to work.
I run "volcheck", the floppy light flashes briefly, as
I've run the following cpio script many times. This copies
all of the files in the current directory to the floppy.
ls | cpio -omv -Hodc -O/vol/dev/rdiskette0/unlabeled
Now I'm getting the following error message:
cpio: Cannot open "/vol/dev/rdiskette0/unlabeled" for output
cpio -i[bcdfkmrstuvBSV6] [-C size] [-E file] [-H hdr] [-I file
[-M msg]] [-R id] [patterns]
cpio -o[acvABLV] [-C size] [-H hdr] [-O file [-M msg]]
cpio -p[adlmuvLV] [-R id] directory
It's not because this is a DOS floppy is it? From my
experience, cpio just bulls over DOS formats. I attempt what I
believe is an unnecessary format:
$ format -d /vol/dev/rdiskette0/unlabeled
Searching for disks...done
No permission (or no disks found)!
Yes, the write enable window is closed. I can copy files to
this particular floppy using its DOS name, "/floppy0/floppy" I
think it's called, I have it aliased.
I took a look at /vol/dev/rdiskette0, and found the contents
to be "no_name", not "unlabeled". I tried that name, for both
formatting and cpio, no luck.
I have only recently started writing DOS floppies. That
wouldn't have anything to do with my problem, would it?
I must be doing something REAL dumb. Anybody?
