Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 120371
udev overwriting /dev entries and loosing file context.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:39 EST
Description of problem:
udev is turned on by hotplug in the 4-6-2004 build and is overwriting
/dev/ directory. Several files written by it have the wrong file
context /dev/fd0, /dev/lp0, /dev/dsp
According to Notting udev should not be on by default and writing over
/dev. Also it should be maintaining the security context of files.
I put in a patch for this, but it does not seem to be being installed.
Not only does it overwrite several files in the /dev directory, it
also REMOVES them when it shuts down (like at reboot). Linux just
doesn't like it when /dev/null, /dev/hda* and /dev/tty* are missing :o)
should be fixed now
