Description Mark McLoughlin 2006-02-17 07:24:41 EST
With mkinitrd CVS HEAD, I see the above warning (and for /dev/ram1 too)

What seems to be happening is that when you mount devpts, the ramdisk device
nodes (ram0 - ram15) automatically get created. I haven't been able to figure
out why ... :-)

Removing the two mknods seems to work fine

Patch also makes the /dev/ram link on the initramfs link to /dev/ram1 rather
than /dev/ram1 linking to non-existent /dev/ram
