I compiled devfs support & auto-mount @ boot into the kernel and compiled the devfsd. The documentation for devfs instructs me to invoke devfsd upon startup - before anything else. I found /etc/rc.d/rc.sysvinit but am not sure this is the very first script. Is it? Also, devfs(d) does not seem to be picking up my usb mouse. What could be the problem?
P.S - On an unrelated side note (I do of course mean rant), I destroyed my gf's copy of win2k and replaced with mandrake 8. After screwing around w/Mandrake for a few days I decided it was nothing more than a pain in the GUI ass and promptly replaced it w/Slack. With all it's "helpful" GUI menus and whatnot it sure didn't help very much. I found it got in the way more than it did help me. I ended up having to edit the files myself anyways (which was a pain in the ass considering it didn't give me emacs or pico (I hate vi)).
