Description Bill Nottingham 2004-08-16 15:07:38 EDT
See bug 130016.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-08-18 17:29:11 EDT
Done in 7.62-1.
Comment 2 Stephen Tweedie 2004-10-13 17:01:27 EDT
And now it needs to come back for RHEL-4.  Sorry.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-13 17:29:19 EDT
Note that the raw command is broken by udev:

# raw /dev/raw/raw1 /dev/hda
Cannot locate raw device '/dev/raw/raw1' (No such file or directory)

We could:

a) have raw make the device node before opening it
b) have a dev.d script that makes /dev/raw/* when /dev/rawctl is made
(i.e., when the raw driver is registered)
c) something else?
Comment 5 Stephen Tweedie 2004-10-13 18:19:32 EDT
Setting this to depend on #130016 (util-linux): we need a new raw(8)
to be able to bind device nodes which have not yet been created in /dev/.
Comment 6 Tim Burke 2004-10-14 19:00:43 EDT
This is needed in RHEL4 B2. So adding to B2 blocker list bug #134551.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-10-19 00:04:20 EDT
Added in 7.93.1.EL-1.
Comment 8 Jay Turner 2004-12-04 15:26:44 EST
Moving this to the Blocker list so that I can close the B2 blocker.  Plus, it
didn't make it for B2 :-(
Comment 9 Jay Turner 2004-12-13 06:58:48 EST
Fix confirmed with initscripts-7.93.11.EL-1.  Closing out.
