I’m trying to use the name_attach() call in one of my programs to register a global name so that I can make sure only 1 instance of my program ever runs.
However the name attach call fails with the error of file/directory does not exist.
Sure enough when I check under /dev there is no /name subdirectory. I can’t manually create one there either using mkdir as root.
So my question is, what deamon or initialization call do I need to make in order for the /dev/name/local directory to get created.
The sample code for name_attach doesn’t show anything extra getting started nor does it mention anything so I’m baffled as to why it does not exist.
