Simple codger question from the days of UNIX... Does Linux have character special files which correspond directly to a block special file? Back in my day 👴🏻 each disk in UNIX had both a block special and a character special file. Also, these special files were permanent inodes in the root file system.
I don't see anything like that; most of
/dev seems to be automatically generated as a virtual file system and I see nothing like
/dev/rsda1 that would correspond to my root file system (vg)
/dev/sda5. Has Linux eliminated the block/character pairs completely?
Please excuse if this is a dumb question!
