comment Shell prompt from initrd
@HamzaAbbad I take it back! If I try it on a different computer, it works perfectly. It's only the machine I actually need to use where it doesn't work. So maybe initrd is missing a keyboard driver or something?

comment Shell prompt from initrd
@HamzaAbbad That's a great suggestion. Unfortunately, I get exactly the same behavior (i.e., I can see the Bash prompt, but cannot type anything.)

comment How are “/dev” Linux files created?
@ArtB I have never seen a Unix that isn't Linux, so I can't comment authoritatively. However, I'm pretty certain they all have the concept of special files, and I think the major number / minor number stuff is universal. Not very sure what other kinds of special file are common though...
