2009-04-22 13:26:07 Major Numbers in RTC and GPIO
ian davidson (UNITED KINGDOM)
It appears that the major numbers for the RTC and the GPIO are the same:
root:/> ls -l /dev
crw-rw-r-- 1 root root 253, 0 Mar 9 2009 /dev/pf0
crw-rw-r-- 1 root root 253, 1 Mar 9 2009 /dev/pf1
crw-r----- 1 root root 253, 0 Mar 9 2009 /dev/rtc
How can I either:
a) build the kernel without the pfx and pgx devices in (I have remove simple GPIO char device and make clean and make)
b) ensure that the major numbers are different

neither of those drivers exist anymore. creating device nodes manually is not the way to go.
2008R1.5 and trunk should do both.
