Hi! Just before I start, two notes: - I may be missing something. - I don't speak perl :-) On trying device-table.pl I found that instead of device nodes I got simple files as output. I have tried running as a normal user and as root, in both cases with and without fakeroot (even if it should not be necessary while using root). So I decided to take a look to the script. I found that running a line like device-table.pl::120 with fakeroot will create simple files, while running them as root they were proper device nodes. I then commented out lines [41-43] and 45. This time the script worked. Of course, I ran it as root. [further reading the script] And reading further I found the --no-fakeroot option. Also works as expected. I can make patches for the documentation to show this option. Kind regard, Lisandro. -- En los momentos de crisis, la imaginación es mas importante que el conocimiento.
