Can somebody point me to info regarding /.dev. I have dig
in /usr/share/doc/udev and Google but found nothing.
$ mount | grep \\.dev
/dev on /.dev type unknown (rw,bind)
When udev starts, your real /dev is bind mounted to /.dev so you can
still access it for whatever reason. As you have noticed, wiping it out
removes your real /dev, which means that your system won't be able to
boot up to the point where it would normally start udev. :(
Some argue that this is one of the places where the old devfs is
superior to udev. ;)
