Re: missing /dev/fd/0 device nodes
The /dev/fd link exists on testing. And on sarge. And woody. And
probably potato before that.
No idea when it first came into being, but it isn't recent.
[BTW: If you're using udev, perhaps your udev config is messed up
Didn't do anything knowingly with udev. All I did was to first install
'testing' on a virgin system, changed the sources list from 'testing' to
'unstable', then ran aptitude to perform the upgrade. I then connected
my USB printer to this system, added it via the Web to CUPS, tried a
test print and found that printing silently fails. After some looking
around and enabling debug output in several places it became clear that
a foomatic script was failing because there was no /dev/fd/0 file.
So, if 'testing' has this symbolic link, it must have been removed
somehow by the upgrade procedure...
