hmm, i think i will have the same problem as well when trying to
package tpctl -- i was under the impression that using mknod was ok.
is that incorrect?
the sysklogd and sysvinit packages both use mknod in postinst.
at least that is what it looked like when i did:
grep mknod /var/lib/dpkg/info/*.p*
do you know of some other packages that have to create device files?
