I just backed out my patch and it still fails. The problem is that udev is not
running when I do the installation. When the full path is given, there's no
problem during installation. This is not using anaconda, this is installing to a
test partition after building. You would never want udev to make entries into a
chroot test partition during install. Its fine when the system reboots to that
partition.

So what's the consensus? A quirk of my build system, or do you want to make
./MAKEDEV into a full path for raidtools? It should be simple enough to fix
raidtools to do this:

%post
cd /dev
%if [ -x ./MAKEDEV ] ; then
  ./MAKEDEV -m 16 md
%else
  /sbin/MAKEDEV -m 16 md
%fi

This solves it for old and new systems.

Thanks,
