I am so close to getting this to work I am about to scream! (well, maybe I won't)
I now have the following situation:
I have sucessfully installed SunOS 4.1.1. and have SunView running.
Also I have an ancient driver I found on the internet user group here;
At long last I was able to get the driver in UUencoded format (finally figured out to send the text to myself in an email, with UUencodeing turned on)
I did finally get the driver files on my SparcStation II; The Lord bless me they worked!!
NOW -- I am stuck again. I cannot seem to reach the author of this famed driver, but I believe he lives in Colorado, and is 45. His name is Timothy Sesow. (rat hole)
I need to figure out the following:
I now have a device created nicely for me, which is so5a, so5b... so on to so5h.
That means there are partitions to these disks or something. I am not sure how I would mount this so I can look at the data on the disks.
REMEMBER: The disks are Magneto-Optical, and have data on them, so I cannot format them, but I may need to create a file system or something so I can read what data ALREADY exists on them. I am really not sure what I will find, but they were used to store the city of UKIAH's city records at one time 8-10 years ago.
I do know that they were mounted in a similar fasion to how I am trying to mount them today.
Other clues: I have already tried the following:
# mount /dev/so5a /modrive
It fails on this error:
mount: /dev/so5a on /modrive: No such device or address
mount: giving up on:
I tried it on the rest of a - h (so5a, so5b, etc...) and it gives the same error.
There are devices in the /dev directory. You get the following if you issue: # ls so*
s05 so5a so5b so5c so5d so5e so5f so5g so5h
Above all, I am on a deadline. I need resolution to this ASAP. I am already 3 mos into this project and I need to bring it to a close this week. (by months end)
If you have any things for me to try, by all means PLEASE do suggest it. (or ask me for more details about the situation)
