You get the error message: No such device or address




This error can occur in quite a lot of situations.

loop: can't open device /dev/loop0: No such device or address
capi not installed - No such device or address
grep: /etc/apache2/logs/fcgidsock/<number>: No such device or address
linux submountd: mount failure, No such device or address
stty: : No such device or address
mt: /dev/st0: No such device or address

In the most situations, the device or socket does not exist. Check if the device exists, or if you have the modules loaded.
