Chapter 6 MAKEDEV seems to emphasis generic over genric-nopty. Granted,
successfully getting through chapter 5 should lead the reader to know that
they will need devpts in order to run the test in chapter 6, I see some
missing this. Also, there probably needs to be a writeup with mounting
proc for mounting devpts.
Chapter 5 can be a problem if your using LFS as the host built without
devpts (kernel had it built in, but LFS was built with MAKEDEV generic).
Mounting devpts fixed it.
The problem I have is that I don't know the cons of devpts, so it's hard
for me to say that you should go that way, but no testing doesn't work
