I have previously reported an inability to get my amd Freebsd 6.1 system to recognize a drive and am wondering if it is because the relevant device node is not in /dev. having said that I am unsure of what I need to be looking for or how to create it.
here are the drives I have got:
(NB Physical Location is is what I use to identify the machine bay in which it is located!)
Western Digital WD2000JD Physical location A SATA
ad0 is a Western Digital WD2000JB-00KFA0 08.05J08 Physical location B IDE ata-0master UDMA100
ad4 is a Seagate ST3160827AS 3.42 ata2 -master SATA150
acd0 is a CDRW <LITE-ON CD-RW SOHR-5239S/2s03> at ata0-slave UDMA33
IDE Channel 0 Master WDC WD2000JB
IDE Channel 0 Slave LITE-ON CD-RW SOHR
IDE Channel 1Master [None]
IDE Channel 1 Slave [None]
IDE Channel 2 Master [None]
IDE Channel 3 Master WDC WD2000JD
IDE Channel 4 Master [None]
IDE Channel 5 Master ST3160827As
In /dev I have ad0, ad0s1 & ad0s1a >thru e
da0 & da1
I do not gave any others that appear to be relevant to drives.
1. What device node names need to be in /dev.
2. How do I create any missing ones.
I have looked at the man pages but I find them a bit terse for my understanding
