My original problem description:
I have a Sparc-10 running Solaris 2.3 and I am experiencing the following
I have a copy of the SUN Workman software utility which enables audio CDs to
be played on the CD-ROM drive. After compiling it, I noticed that in order
to get it to work, I have to kill the volume manager (vold). The Workman
software works at this point but while I'm listening to the CD, the system,
begins to die a slow death and eventually hang. If I try to start the
program while vold is running I get:
"/dev/rdsk/c0t6d0s2: Device busy"
It was Dotty Pon (firstname.lastname@example.org) who gave me the helpful
hint about the the order of commands in the /etc/rmmount.conf file that
fixed the problem. In the 'Actions' section of the file, I had the mount
command for the file manager (cdrom) ahead of the Workman line. As a result,
the file manager would try to mount the audio CD as a volume. Inverting the
two lines did the trick:
action cdrom action_workman.so /export/home/chrisl/workman/workman
action cdrom action_filemgr.so
action floppy action_filemgr.so
To those of you who inquired about where to get a copy of this software, try
'ftp.hyperion.com' for the latest release. Thanks to Reggie Dugard
(email@example.com) and Steve Kilbane (firstname.lastname@example.org) for this info.
Once again, thanks to everyone that helped.
