I have an Ultra-10 that I want to add USB to. I bought a johnny-noname
USB2.0 card (think it might have been a 2-port belkin, didn't bother
taking too much notice of the model number or looking up the chipset) and
popped it in.
Then I decided I'd give Solaris-10 a rattle before installing Linux,
particularly because I wanted to fiddle with zones and with ZFS (which
it seems is delayed! bah!)
Anyway, I don't think the PCI card is being detected by the OS - really
weird because prtconf doesn't even list it.
I assumed a fresh install of Solaris 10 would reconfigure /devices and
then detect my card, but no sign of it. Nothing in dmesg or in any of the
message logs either.
I guess I'll try a debian bootdisk and see if it detects the card at all.
Is it likely my card is dead? Any hints on what might be the problem?
