2009-05-28 14:49:03     Where is the pflag driver in "make menuconfig"

I recently upgraded uclinux from 2006R2 to 2008R1.5-RC3. I could not find where to enable the PFlag driver in the configuration system. It used to be in the Kernel Configuration: Device drivers: Character devices.

 

Can anyone help? Thanks.

it'll be in the same place in the kernel menuconfig.  latest 2008R1 svn has integrated the simple-gpio driver and dropped the pflag driver.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks a lot. Two more questions:

 

1. It seems that the vendors/AnalogDevices/BF533-STAMP/device_table-min.txt file is used to create the device file nodes. There is also a file called device_table.txt in the same directory. Is there a way in the menuconfig to tell the system to use the later rather than the former? Right now, I copied the later over the fomer. I know that I can also do this by manually modifying the corresponding Makefile.

 

 

 

2. The following line in the device_table-min.txt is supposed to create nodes /dev/pf0 through /dev/pf15:

 

/dev/pf        c    664    0    0    253    0    0    1    16

 

but it did not. The system only created a node called /dev/pf. What is wrong here. The above line worked perfectly in the old release.

 

Thank you!

look under "Miscellaneous Configuration" for dynamic device nodes.  you might also have to tweak the default /etc/rc file as it assumes dynamic.

 

really though you should stop using static device nodes and just go with dynamic already.

Where is "Miscellaneous Configuration"? Where do I find more about this topic (any reference)? Thanks.
