What's an 'mcd device' (because it's missing)?

Just curious,

What's an mcd device? My system says 'init failed' since there's none such thing
at irq 0x300 during
booting, but otherwise everything seems fine.

Thanks, Andreas

It's a Mitsumi CD Drive.  If you don't have one, then it's normal to
get that message.  I noticed the same thing when usign the net_boot
Slackware kernel that isn't _supposed_ to have any CD drivers in it.

The Mitsumi driver latched onto my ethernet card which was at 0x300
adn IRQ 5.  I recompiled the kernel without the Mitsumi CD driver and
the message went away (and I was able to use an ethernet board at
0x300, IRQ 5)

I am trying to get the Checker program (V0.3) to work and
am having trouble with ld when I try to run Checker.

Specifically , I am running linux-0.99.15, and I just installed
gcc2.5.8, libc.4.5.21, and CheckerV0.3  (I installed all of the
above as I wanted to use Checker !! and the README said I needed
a gcc at least 2.5 something (I was at gcc2.4.5 before) ).

In installing the above I installed ld.so.1.9l.4.

After all this when I try to compile a program with checkergcc I get:
# checkergcc test.c -o test
ld: unrecognized option `-checker'
Usage: ld [-d] [-dc] [-dp] [-e symbol] [-l lib] [-n] [-noinhibit-exec]
       [-nostdlib] [-o file] [-r] [-s] [-t] [-u symbol] [-x] [-y symbol]
       [-z] [-A file] [-Bstatic] [-D size] [-L libdir] [-M] [-N]
       [-static] [-nojump] [-dll-verbose] [-S] [-T[{text,data}] addr]
       [-V prefix] [-X] [file...]

I tried to use the ld.diff file (that came with the CheckerV0.3)
to make a new ld.so
, but it seemed wildly different
than the ld.c file the diff file was compared against (the ld.diff
file starts it's changes at line 1154, and the ld.so.c file
for ld.so.1.9l.4 has only 458 lines.

Can you help/ any suggestions ?

Thanks,

--Carl

1. Missing '.' and '..' directories

Hello all!!!

This is an interesting problem....  I have a client that somehow has deleted
the '.' and '..' entries in several directories.  I can create and remove
entries in
these directories, but I am unable to 'l'ist anything (gives an error
message that "l: cannot get the working directory: Not a directory (error
20)", I cannot
rm -r * from one layer down because it says that the directory is not empty...

BTW, this is SCO 3.2V5.0.2

Any ideas????

Mark
