Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 132103
MAKEDEV attempts to do something which is not asked to do
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:48 EST
Description of problem:
While booting with UDEV_TMPFS=yes and selinux=0 I am getting
on a screen:
Making extra nodes: MAKEDEV: /dev/fd0: unable to reset file creation
MAKEDEV: /dev/fd1: unable to reset file creation context
..... (long list skipped ) .....
MAKEDEV: /dev/net/tun: unable to reset file creation context
MAKEDEV: /dev/nvidiactl: unable to reset file creation context
What "file creation context"? I have not only selinux=0 in
kernel boot parameters but even SELINUX=disabled in
/etc/sysconfig/selinux. While I do not know what would happen
if I would enable these in the current situation MAKEDEV
definitely should not complain.
A sort of a nasty workaround here is to do in /sbin/start_udev
make_extra_nodes >/dev/null 2>&1 && .....
instead of the current
make_extra_nodes && .....
but this would not help at all with later MAKEDEV invocations.
