Given all of the 2.4 issues, we really should have a 2.2 kernel in the tree, and
probably it's own profile. I'm not sure of the status of devfs wrt the 2.2
series; has anybody tested current Gentoo w/o devfs to make sure everything is
Okay, it's easy enough to compile a 2.2 kernel w/ devfs compiled in.
Unfortunately, tmpfs doesn't exist. It wouldn't be hard to modify
/sbin/rc so that a ramdisk is created if the tmpfs mount fails, but
I don't know that it can be mounted on /dev/shm since devfs won't create
it. At least, when I tried to mount it it failed. Any suggestions?
Karltk wants a 2.0 kernel, too. Thank goodness UML is working for me!
It looks like /sbin/rc needs to be edited to mount a ramdisk instead
of tmpfs, and runscript.sh will need to have the mount point modified.
Done. Needs the forthcoming baselayout to work properly.
