Is it possible to move file from /dev to other directory?


Hi,

I tried to move the tty from /dev to other directory. For testing, I removed the tty5 from /dev and using mknod to create tty5 under other directory and link it back to the /dev. It looks ok, but when I reboot the system and tried to login using ctrl+Alt+F5 (tty5), I can not login any more, it always says :Login incorrect. Does anyone has such experience? Please help. Thanks
