I am trying to start vold on my Ultra 5 running 2.8. For some reason
the SUNWvol* packages weren't installed, so i installed SUNWvolu,
SUNWvolr, and SUNWvolux off the CD.
when i try to start vold, i get the following:
bash-2.03# /usr/sbin/vold -v -L 11 >&/dev/console &
Wed Dec 5 14:54:19 2001 warning: vol_init: open failed on
/dev/volctl; No such file or directory
Wed Dec 5 14:54:19 2001 fatal: vol_init failed (can't communicate
Dec 5 14:54:19 shockwave /usr/sbin/vold: vol_init failed (can't
communicate with kernel)
 Exit 255 /usr/sbin/vold -v -L 11 1>&/dev/console
There is no /vol directory, and /dev/volctrl doesn't exist. The vol
pseudo driver is also not installed.
I have tried loading the pseudo driver manually using:
bash-2.03# modload /usr/kernel/drv/vol
But it doesn't seem to make much difference.
Does anyone know what i should try? How i can i create /dev/volctrl
Thanks in advance,
