First of all, I would like to say thanks to :
Hichael Morton,
Michael Connolly
Phillip Miller,

I built another Ultra 5 with Solaris 8 10-2001, then
installed the SunPCI software 1.3. The pkgadd ends
with a "succesfully" .And it works, at least I could
be able to create a C drive for Dos.

The following is part of the output of prtconf -D that
show the existence of the 400Mhz SunPCI card.

    pci, instance #1 (driver name: simba)
        pci108e,5043, instance #0 (driver name:

Then, perhaps the SUNPci software 1.3 has some
conflicted things with Solaris 9 ?

Anyway, thanks again to everybody.

The original question :
Hi all,

I just installed a SUNPCI 400Mhz on Ultra 5 with
Solaris 9.
Looking at Sun site, I installed the SunPci software

I have two questions:
1. How do I know if OBP recognizes the SUNPCI card ?
( I 've had touch /reconfigure and reboot )

2. When adding the package SUNWspci, I get the
following error:
[ verifying class <none> ]
## Executing postinstall script.
Warning: /etc/devlink.tab not updated correctly
         Perhaps the system OBP needs to be updated
Can not open the SunPCi device
  The device driver is not installed.
pkgadd: ERROR: postinstall script did not complete

Installation of <SUNWspci> partially failed.

I tried the software 2.3.1 and got similar error.

Please give me some advice,
