Solaris Common Messages and Troubleshooting Guide

ln: cannot create /dev/fb: Read-only filesystem


During device reconfiguration at boot time, the system cannot link to the frame buffer because /dev is on a read-only file system.


Check that /dev/fb is a symbolic link to the hardware frame buffer, such as cgsix(7D) or tcx(7D). Ensure that the file system containing /dev is mounted read-write.
