no /dev/dp with dp-4.0

no /dev/dp with dp-4.0

Hi,
        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
        exist.

        Any suggestions.

        thanks, email preferred.

        Phil Maechling

I can't remember for sure, but try a reconfiguration boot.

Also, check dp is in /etc/name_to_major  -  if not, your 'make install'
hasn't worked.

/dev/dp should get created automatically when you do the modload.
Mine looks like this...
home>dir /dev/dp

home>ifconfig dp0
dp0: flags=f1<UP,POINTOPOINT,NOTRAILERS,RUNNING,NOARP> mtu 1500
        inet 192.246.139.1 --> 38.1.1.1 netmask ffffff00

Unfortunately, it has been a while for me since I configured dp.
Have you done a modinfo to make sure the modload worked?  Here's
my output...

home>modinfo | grep dp
 27 ff179f98   2dcc   3   1  udp (UDP Streams module)
 27 ff179f98   2dcc  41   1  udp (UDP Streams device)
 69 ff4cc000   5784  20   1  dp (Dialup PPP DLPI Driver v4.0)
home>

Good luck,
Joe
