dp-4.0 on UltraSparc anyone?

dp-4.0 on UltraSparc anyone?

Post by Jarrod Stenbe » Fri, 04 Jul 1997 04:00:00

I've spent much time getting dp-4.0 to run on my Sparc Utlra AX.

Finally, it dials, connects and appears to succesfully log in, then during
or after the ip negotiation (I have a static IP), BLAMO.

panic[cpu0]/thread=0x3002bec0: trap

is the error message.

I have a feeling that the problem is unique to my machine.  i cannot find
any patches that are specific to the problem, or that are vaguely related.

I have installed the recommended patches from sunsolve1.sun.com to no

Has anyone heard of this and can anyone help?

1. no /dev/dp with dp-4.0

        I'm trying to set up dp-4.0 on a solaris machine.

        Everything seems to build ok, and install ok.

        When I try to start the daemon,  I get an error saying that
        the device /dev/dp doesn't exisit.

        I've already loaded the modules dp using modload /usr/kernel/drv/dp

        If I put a soft link to this routine, the file type is wrong.

        I don't know how this /dev/dp file is supposed to get created.

        ipconfig dp0 plumb fails also because the file /dev/fp doesn't

        Any suggestions.

        thanks, email preferred.
