Description Paul Osmialowski 2006-06-26 11:28:11 UTC
After recent update almost all devices from /dev tree has gone. It was very hard to repair the box to make baselayout downgrade possible. It happend only on ultrasparc machine (as I upgraded all my gentoos recently). I suspect recent changes to /etc/conf.d/rc were too pragmatic.

Please, don't restrict bugs without any reason. Also, emerge --info missing.

Comment 3 Paul Osmialowski 2006-06-26 13:13:53 UTC
To make things easier I'm copying here version informations after successfull downgrade:
ada ~ # emerge -pv baselayout

These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!

Comment 4 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2006-06-26 14:09:49 UTC
we changed the default RC_DEVICE_TARBALL value from "yes" to "no" in /etc/conf.d/rc

this change is sane and would cause /dev to contain a lot less device nodes
Comment 5 Paul Osmialowski 2011-03-05 15:40:24 UTC
I don't have this and any other Ultra1 machine anymore so no additional info will be provided.
