I frequently get the dev-mapper problem during compile.
I have no idea how to fix it. I tried doig the mkdev script for
device-mapper (from sistina), the lvm2 tools etc... but it
still complains. Till now, I've not been successful in trying out
LVM due to the above propblems.

But other than that, it's pretty safe to ignore

Now, if not mistaken I've faced this before. But for the life of 
me , I can't remember what I did to solve this.

If not mistaken, if you tried to mount an iso image like
mount -o loop /path/to/iso-image /mnt/iso

It'll give you the same issue.

could be you're missing something in the /dev/ filesystem. 

I can't remember. Can you try googling??
