device naming


I'm using Linux since years and having some technical knowledge, but one thing I never was able to understand:
Look at this site: HOWTO
Well, I followed this instructions. I have the driver module, it seems to work well (dmesg gives much encouraging output), all seems fine. But for some I can't find a device named "/dev/mmcblk0p1".
Now, how can I find how the driver module names the device on my machine?

At least you need to know what are the major/minor number this device driver creates. With this number you can found the /dev/ entry using ls -l which shows the major and minor numbers in 5th and 6th fields.

I'm sorry, but I don't have a better answer.

Yes, I know...Did you check the driver documentation, looking for the major/minor numbers ? Or may be you can ask the developers for it.
