Hi, any ideas as to why gentoo would not create /dev/ entries for my hd's attached to a scsi bus? It detects my cd-rom fine (as /dev/sr0)

here is part of dmesg:

Have you "SCSI disk support" compiled in the kernel?

Best regards!

Having the same problem when I try to install from the 2006.0 CD on a PowerMac 8500 (OldWorld). No devices for my SCSI disks, although my CD-ROM is detected as sr0.

I believe it is a matter of the mesh driver (if I understand what I read over the net) not loading. BUT there is no mesh driver in the CD. modprobe mesh returns a "not found" message.

What can I do to overcome this?

EDIT: I found the solution in the forums here. The module is sd_mod, so
Code:
# modprobe sd_mod


is the command to get your disks on /dev/
