19 Hi,
21 Related SCSI installed topic. Where are the drive dev nodes???
22 rc6-r9 iso boots ok on my AHA-2940UW system. Fdisk and mkreiserfs can't
23 find the drives. When I look in /dev the only entries for the SCSI
24 devices are:
26 /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/targetX/lun0 where X=0,1,5,6 for my 2 HD's and CD's.
28 Can't use these device entries to access the drives with fdisk or
29 mkreiserfs.
31 I seem to remember on rc5 that there was a /dev/disk/... set of nodes
32 what had the partitions.
34 Is there anyway to create these nodes in the iso image shell?
36 thanks,
