retaining /dev permission
I have just recompiled my kernel to 18.104.22.168.
I am running Mandrake 10.0, which I know uses the devfs to assign dev permissions etc.
I decided to not compile devfs into my kernel at all, since it is now depreciated and I wanted to try to use the new convention /dev/pty format.
I just want to know how to retain any permissions which I set in the /dev/ folder, because everytime I boot I do not have permission to access /dev/null and a few other important components tty's etc.
I can fix this easily enough, with chmod as su. But I would really love to be able to keep these settings everytime I boot. I could make a script that ran at boot time to alter these permissions, but I imagine there is a "proper" way to do it not a dodgy hack like that.
