The rocketport devices (ttyR and cuaR) are the only MAKEDEV targets
that don't create the specials in the current working directory.
(Also, it's kind of lame to read the number of rocketport ports
from dmesg. If the system has been up very long, the autoconf
messages are long gone; using /var/run/dmesg.boot would be slightly
better. But it would probably be best to just create N specials,
thus allowing one to configure a filesystem in advance.)
Fix: Appended is a context diff to etc/MAKEDEV. It remove the /dev
prefixes. (My patch does not address the dmesg issue.)
RCS file: RCS/MAKEDEV,v
retrieving revision 1.1
# cd /mnt/dev
# ./MAKEDEV ttyR0 cuaR0
Then notice that the new specials end up in /dev, not /mnt/dev.
(Or especially how the specials that were in /dev now have default
my MFC reminder.
