Re: Confusion over device major:minor numbering...
dwarf, you are wrong. type+major+minor should be unique.
type is either block (b) or char (c).
it's ok for /dev/mem and /dev/ram0 to have the same major and minor
number : mem is a char device, ram0 is a block device.
for more information read Documentation/devices.txt of your favorite
note : there is a current development to make major and minor numbers
obsolete, reorganize /dev and create a dev filesystem for automatic
handling of devices. i try to implement a better idea.
