No /dev/cciss/*

I am building a livecd using openSuse on SuseStudio to use as a rescue cd.

My problem is when trying to use either openSuse 11.* or Sles 11 as a livecd (build from Suse Studio minimal) is that (and here comes the hardware part) i do not get /dev/cciss devices instead i get /dev/sda devices and this is bad becuse i can not restore grub. I have tried to install HPs cciss driver but it had no effect. What can i do to get /dev/cciss devices?

It would be nice to be able to run grub-install /dev/cciss/c0d0

I do not know the amser, but I can give some information (that you may know allready about, but I can not see from your scanty description).

All in /dev is nowadays generated by udev. As long as there are no appropriate udev rules for the devices you have, the device special files you need will not be generated. The current rules are in /etc/udev/rules.d.

Found the error. Server is booted with hpsa module. (Hpsa does not not create /dev/cciss/) Did rmmod hpsa && modprobe cciss and now I have /dev/cciss/ :slight_smile:
