Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 15785
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
/dev/netlink (c 36 3) is missing, and /dev/MAKEDEV doesn't
know how to create it. Sure, creating it is easy, but it should probably
go into dev and MAKEDEV packages.
I consider this an oversight as all netlink-related stuff are compiled in
in the kernels..
Fixed in 3.0.5-5.
Is it intended behaviour not to include /dev/netlink in dev package, only
That happens in RC1.
The definition has been added, but /dev/netlink will not be built by default.
As I'm not sure if this is by design, I'm reopening this.
Happens with MAKEDEV-3.0.6-5 (Gold release) too.
This was by design (netlink isn't in the current devices.txt), but I'll change
it for 3.1.0-8 and later.
