OK, you may think I'm stupid but PLEASE HELP!
My CDROM would not mount, I got a device does not exist error on
/dev/sr0 and all /dev/dsk/c0t6d0s? even though they do exist.
probe-scsi from the ok prompt works fine and finds the CDROM
but only after a power off. After the system has been booted
and shut down, probe-scsi goes through the access lights on
the various drives and then locks the machine.
I seemed to remember a message saying that I wouldn't be able
to mount my CDROM till I did ??? when I installed the drivers
for my microphone and openwin audio stuff. I did this from
the answerbook documentation which is all on CD and now I
obviously can't access it. I removed the audio and dbri drivers
but this didn't help.
Anyway, one thing led to another and I somehow ended up
rem_drv'ing my obio driver after working out that the CDROM
became unreachable with probe-scsi sometime around where this
driver is started. This has rendered my system
unbootable. boot cdrom locks the system and boot -install
doesn't even look at the CDROM.
I am running Solaris 2.1 on a SPARK LX, any help or advice
apart from "shoot yourself" and "stay away from the root account"
would be greatly appreciated.
