Topic: Where is mknod?

Hello.

I am trying to create a device node with mknod but mknod is not on my firmware, even though it is enabled with a * in busybox.

Is this normal?

I am running kamikaze r4548. Is this up to date?

Thanks!

Answer to my own question :
The make menuconfig from buildroot-ng root dir is not updating the busybox/.config file correctly. I had to set the mknod option by hand in that .config file to have it build correctly.

OpenWrt uses devfs; mknod is unnecessary

Re: Where is mknod?

devfs is broken on the wgt634u, as per ticket 666
