How do I add a /dev/rrtS? I have 6 physical com port on my machine, but
Debian only see 4 of them. I use the command MAKEDEV but they do not

from /dev.static/dev to the /dev, but still, my setserial keep saying my
ttySx do not exist.
In Etch, /dev is managed by udev which wants to create device nodes on
the fly. Entries in /dev are not persistent any more. You could create
your own /usr/local/dev to contain your persistent device notes, or you
could add the appropriate mknod commands to /etc/init.d/rc.local .
