mknod: xxx: Operation not permitted



Hi,

Trying to create a char-device as ordinary user, results into this:
# mknod /var/tmp/bla-1.0.0/etc/udev/devices/bla01 c 212 0
mknod: `/var/tmp/bla-1.0.0/etc/udev/devices/bla01': Operation not permitted

Any explanation for this behavior?

Is it mknod trying to be overly clever or is it an selinux bug (This is
on a FC3 system with selinux-policy-targeted)?

This issue prevents one from being able to build rpms containing special
devices as ordinary users.

Ralf
