I've started testing coda on Solaris 7 sparc machines. Here are some

The client installed successfully on a Sparc5 and an Ultra1. 

However, on an ultra10 I got (during make install):

echo 'name="coda" parent="pseudo" instance=0;' >
chmod 644 /usr/kernel/drv/coda /usr/kernel/drv/coda.conf
add_drv coda
devfsadm: driver failed to attach: coda
Warning: Driver (coda) successfully added to system but failed to attach
gmake[1]: *** [real-install] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/home/bergerm/src/solaris-coda-0.03'
gmake: *** [install] Error 2

and the device /devices/pseudo/coda_at_0:coda is never created, which causes
venus to fail.

more to follow. I have some more machines and I'll test the server, too
