No /dev/i2c-0 entry after insmod i2c-dev


I am using a windriver Linux. I have built the I2c-core, i2c-i801 and i2c-dev drivers and they are getting inserted while booting. After boot up, there are sysfs entries in /sys/class/i2c-dev/i2c-0 and /sys/bus/i2c/i2c-0. But there is no entry in /dev. In dmesg, it shows a line:
i2c /dev entries driver
But it does not creates any entry in /dev. Any idea on this???

Thanks in advance,

I have solved the problem. The udev daemon was not getting started since the script that starting udev doesn't have execute permission. After setting execute permission to that daemon. It is working fine.
