Description Russell Coker 2004-09-26 08:52:46 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper: 
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.3; Linux) (KHTML, 
like Gecko) 
Description of problem: 
echo "mkdmnod" | /sbin/nash --quiet >/dev/null 2>&1 
Currently the above line in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit is used to 
create /dev/mapper/control because udev does not do so.  I believe 
this is wrong.  Only udev should be creating device nodes. 
Please make udev create /dev/mapper/control if the dm_mod module is 
loaded so that rc.sysinit does not need to do it. 
NB  This change is needed to allow improvements to the SE Linux 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
How reproducible: 
Steps to Reproduce: 
Comment out the mkdmnod line from rc.sysinit and observe that there 
is no /dev/mapper/control.

Medium-term, I'll aim to get libdevmapper to create it transparently.
