Back on 21st March, Dragos Ionita reported a missing /dev/nvram in
I now think this is a side effect of udevstart being discontinued. I
believe that on other platforms using chroot we will get errors for a
missing /dev/hdX or /dev/sdX. Presumably, people who boot the temporary
system will already have adequate device files ?
It seems to me that we have at least the following options -
(i) somewhere in chapter 12, tell people who chrooted to bind /dev from
(ii) in chapter 12, people who chrooted can run a script like that
Alexander has suggested for LFS, which creates nodes for devices in
- for the second option, ppc will then need to create /dev/nvram in the
yaboot page of chapter 12, possibly some other arches may also need
other devices, I wouldn't know.
Disagreements, comments, preferences, other options ?
das eine Mal als TragÃ¶die, das andere Mal als Farce
