I have been messing around with tv out using my matrox card. The tutorial I mainly used said to use the command
mknod /dev/fusion/0 c 253 0
this worked for my older system using a 2.4 kernel(2.4 headers), but not my newer system using a 2.6(and 2.6 headers). For the newer system I had to use this command
mknod /dev/fusion/0 c 252 0 #notice the minor is a different number
notice the number, 252(I think this is the minor), where does that number come from?
Looks like on 2.4 you were creating a character device with a major number of 253 and, then, on 2.6 that changed to a major number of 252.
According to the "devices.txt" file in /usr/src/linux/Documentation, those number fall into the range, well, here's what's in the file:
thanks for the explanation.
