Description David Zeuthen 2004-04-11 18:29:01 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040312 Epiphany/1.1.12

Description of problem:
udev already ships with initscripts to rebuild /dev at boot but these
are not installed in the package.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install udev
2. see there is no initscripts for udev

Actual Results:  after reboot /dev still contains 18000 or so files.

Expected Results:  /dev should be minimal and only represent the
devices available in the system

Comment 1 David Zeuthen 2004-04-19 17:25:39 EDT
Oh, I forgot to mention that another issue with no initscripts is that
the udev database located at /dev/.udev.tdb is not initialised with
appropriate data. This means that udevinfo doesn't work as intended,
for example 

david@laptop:~/xdg-hacking/hal$ udevinfo -r -q name -p /block/hda

won't work which is a problem when using freedesktop.org hal.
