talking about redirection to /dev/null creating an empty file which
gets overwritten with a device node when 'dev' is installed, or
something more serious like an application attempting to communicate

If its installed before the dev package the scriplets fail when its
being installed. It would fail to run without dev but thats a bit of a
I found this with a custom install builder for a small box, that
happened to do ssh before dev and got script errors
... fails how, exactly? Error message?
I'll try and find a box to rerun the test set on next week or two.
Its "low" priority for good reason tho
No response here.
Does it still apply now that we have the udev?
Please reopen if still needed.
