I am having a problem when trying to add several drivers using add_drv
under Solaris 8. After successfully installing several drivers and
then trying to install another one, I receive an error message from
add_drv indicating that no major numbers are available. This seems to
happen consistently after the highest major number in
/etc/name_to_major reaches 224. I can edit name_to_major and add
entries (225 and up) for the remaining drivers, then run add_drv and
it installs the drivers correctly in /dev and /devices. Needless to
say, editing name_to_major by hand is not my preferred solution.
Does Solaris 8 have a default maximum bound for major numbers? Is it
possible to increase that number? If so, then how?
Thanks in advance,
