After building kernel 3.2.13 and installing via RPM on my system, I have this problem:
There is no /dev/ptmx which the rest of my system is expecting. There is actually a /dev/tty/ptmx device though. How do I get this linked or created on bootup?
On all of my other kernels ( 2.6.X ), there are 255 /dev/tty character devices. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to create more with my new kernel.
What actually makes the tty devices? I can create them myself or through some scripts, but is this something that should be done when the /dev is mounted? Can I somehow build this into the kernel?
I thought it was udev that was responsible for this, but I haven't modified udev and only when I boot into 3.2.13 do the entries not exist and I see nothing indicating that udev isn't working on the newer kernel.
