Re: Packaging a Debian System on RedHat



Dynamic detection and building of /dev tree will not work for me,
unfortunately!
This /dev tree is intended to be loaded on an embedded system that has
Debian.
I am building a debian linux system on RedHat (RHEL 4) and loading it on the
embedded box.

That is why I am trying to simulate the /dev tree that I will need on the
target Debian box.

Is there a way I can do this?
I made a /dev1/dev and created a tree. Will that work? The dd command
failed, so there must be something I am missing or doing wrong.

Thanks,
Supriya

I think you need to look at udev. There was a recent post about this.
RedHat dynamically builds the /dev tree based on actual hardware
detect rather than just having a tone of dev nodes precreated.

this might help:
