I just installed OpenBSD 2.3 on my Sparc IPC (sun4c), which was previously
running Sparc Linux. I am very happy with it! It even seems to run faster now.
The only problem I have now is that I haven't been able to mount the Jaz disk
in which I stored my files. When the system comes up, messages show that the
system recognizes the device, and gives it the device name sd1. However, when
I try to mount the disk using mount_ext2fs, I get a "Device not configured"
error, no matter which partition I try to mount, except for partition "c", for
which I get an "Incorrect format" error. In all cases, the drive activity
light flashes a few times before the error, so at least I know that the
machine is communicating with the drive.
I formatted the Jaz disk from Linux, and the file system was created in
I have looked through the kernel configuration file to see if there is
something I am missing, but I can't find anything. It is supposed to be a SCSI
device anyway, isn't it? :-) Besides, I'm still using the GENERIC kernel,
which seems to have mostly everything enabled.
I will be very grateful for any ideas.
