Exclamation A dialog box saying " inode missing" !!!!


Hi all,

I used Partimage two times to create FC image via knoppix.
The problem is i got the following message in message box .

Dialog box heading "I node missing"


" /dev/cloop0 inode doesn't exists.partimage can create it for you. you can also use the manual mknod command.Do you want this inode to be created for you now? "
yes (or) no.


I simply clicked yes .

What it means ?
Images which i already created will work properly when i restore it ?

Thanks in advance.

Files in /dev are special files creaked by the mknod command (IE when MAKEDEV is run, or I think udev does it on demands in some cases).

Anyway - it is not something to worry about, it just means that for whatever reason, that device node wasn't created.

I had a similar issue in Debian - they would only create /dev/ttyS0 through /dev/ttyS3 but my modem was on a pci card, and was /dev/ttyS4. So I had to make the node myself. Happens sometimes, udev is suppose to make it a little bit better.
