The only sarcastic comment in that was the last sentence. The rest was
deadly serious. I always thought that an LFS system should be usable,
and I don't see anywhere in the book that mandates a user "MUST" go on
to BLFS to make their system usable. If the goal of the book is to
create an intentionally broken/unusable system then that needs
addressing very quickly IMO.
The main concern I have about your proposal about dynamic device
creation being a BLFS topic is consistency. What is so different about
those types of devices that mean that LFS shouldn't cater for them -
after all, it's not like they're uncommon in this day and age. Like I
said before, I believe all devices need to be treated equally. So, IMO,
they either all get created in LFS *or* they all get created in BLFS. I
personally couldn't care less which book they go in.
