Re: How to make kernel binary rpm with devfs enabled from src.rpmin RH9 ?

Hi! Arjan: Is that possible to turn on devfs if I can take my own risk ? I know the original kernel 2.4.20 from Linus DO support devfs, although it's experimental. If I use a simple ramdisk for /dev, what's the difference between it and devfs ? It's will be safer than devfs ? 1 I thought that devfs = "ramdisk + dev package".
