Hi all,

I am using a 2.4.30 kernel for my MIPS embedded processor. The kernel can
start up properly but the tty0 doesn't exist under /dev. I have already
enable the virtual console during kernel configuration. is it something
configure not properly for the kernel?? Anyone can help??

Thanks in advance,

Hi Louis,

The problem is that you didn't create the special file /dev/tty0. Create it with the mknod command :
# mknod /dev/tty0 c 4 0
Then put the good rights, for example:
# chmod 640 /dev/tty0
That should do it...
