udev and tmpfs fail on custom kernel, docs misleading

view full story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – On boot, udev is giving a mount error. It appears to not have control of the /dev directory. From /etc/rc.d/rc.udev: >> mount -n -o mode=0775 -t tmpfs tmpfs /dev mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on tmpfs, missing codepage, or helper program, or other error (for several filesystems (e.g. nfs, cifs) you might need a /sbin/mount.<type> helper program) In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try dmesg | tail or so Trying to mount tmpfs in any other manner (HowTos)
