We have solaris 2.3 ,on SS5 .We had a problem of ps command hangs with no output. This problem is solved by  removing a the file /dev/bd.off which has a zero sympolic link .
Anyone there  explain to me how this file got created ? and why ps hangs on the presence of zero sympolic link in /dev ?

Thr bd stream module processes the  byte streams generated by the SunButtons and Sundials dialbox.
If ps hangs remove bd.off and boot -r
