Re: Linux on Amiga A600, a success story (in progress, with possible patch)

Hi Thorsten,

Might be the wrong /dev/rtc device - it should be major 254 minor 0

Actually, it should be /dev/rtc0 (according to my Debian system)
hwclock attempts to open /dev/rtc which is symlinked to rtc0 if udev is used.
and you can find out the correct major number like this:

root@ara5:~ # ll /dev/rtc*
crw------- 1 root root 254, 0 Dec 26 16:48 /dev/rtc0
root@ara5:~ # fgrep rtc /proc/devices
254 rtc

This is auto-created from devtmpfs (no udev here), FWIW.
With no helpers at all, the devices need to be static files present in /dev. The old makedev scripts (/dev/MAKEDEV) probably need to be overhauled to create the correct files to cover this case.
My copy on the Falcon will still create a misc device for RTC,
My ARAnyM command line contains devtmpfs.mount=1 coupled
with a few lines in /etc/rc.local:

(test -e /dev/fd || ln -s /proc/self/fd /dev/fd || :)
(test -e /dev/stdin || ln -s /proc/self/fd/0 /dev/stdin || :)
(test -e /dev/stdout || ln -s /proc/self/fd/1 /dev/stdout || :)
(test -e /dev/stderr || ln -s /proc/self/fd/2 /dev/stderr || :)
rc.local hacks are always possible as a last resort :-) Good one, though.
