Description MATSUURA Takanori 2000-07-16 00:41:24 EDT
What's "ad?" devices?
"adb" is confricted with macintosh "adb" device.

Both are written in /etc/makedev.d/linux-2.2.x.
Comment 1 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-17 10:00:49 EDT
The linux-2.2.x file is written almost directly from the devices.txt
file distributed with the kernel.  I'll have to look into what's going
on there....
Comment 2 Nalin Dahyabhai 2000-07-18 10:25:43 EDT
Email from the devices.txt maintainer indicates that ACSI devices weren't
officially given the names they use, so I've commented them out.  This will
show up in MAKEDEV-3.0.4-3 and later.
