Description Daniel Walsh 2004-04-07 23:50:02 EDT
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)
Comment 2 Harald Hoyer 2004-04-21 09:54:53 EDT
should be fixed now
