Unknown major/minor Devtype - IBM DeskStar 120 GB

Post by Jens Mande » Mon, 26 Aug 2002 22:49:27



I 'm trying to make an IBM DeskStar with 120 GB unter FreeBSD 4.6 runing.
Partitioning the harddrive with fdisk under /stand/sysinstall worked. But
when I tryed to craete a label it failed with the message: "Unknown
major/minor Devtype ".
The harddrive is noticed as
"ad0: 117800MB <IC35L120AVVA07-0> [239340/16/63] at ata0-master UDMA33" at
bootup.

Is it possible that the harddisk is not supported in the FreeBSD-release I
use?
How can i solve the problem?

1. Solaris 8 intel support for 75 Gb IBM deskstar

Anyone out there managed to format a 75 Gb drive under Solaris 8?

Specifically an IBM deskstar 75GXP.

If so can you send me your drive parameters......
