I have rebuilt the kernel (ISC 2.0.1) with osm installed
but no /dev/osm is created.
Apparently there is no /etc/conf/node.d/osm file.

Can anybody help me with major and minor numbers ?

On our AT&T 3B2 running SYS V R 3.2.1 there's a utility
called 'errint' for reading /dev/osm. 
Is this supposed to be standard in SYS V R 3.2?
I can't find it in ISC 386/ix.
