[altq 1012] Re: re: can't open altq device on NetBSD
This did not work for me. Changing the major number of the dev files
resulted in a new error:
altqd: ALTQ config file is /etc/altq.conf
altqd: can't open altq device: Device not configured
This is the same error I get if I change the altq device major numbers to a
different arbitrary number (I tried 93, picked randomly). Thus, I do not
believe that the problem you describe below is relevant to my case. My
firewall is not an Alpha... is yours? That may have been the case with you.
77 is the major number for NetBSD.alpha.
