noflushd & devfs


I get the following error whenever I run apt-get to install any program:

Starting No Flush Daemon: Error: Your kernel is configured with devfs, but devfs is not
mounted anywhere. This means noflushd cannot work.
Please consult the noflushd README for details
invoke-rc.d: initscript noflushd, action "start" failed.
dpkg: error processing noflushd (--configure):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1
Errors were encountered while processing:
noflushd
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)


There is another thread where someone had the same problem but even after running

init 1
dpkg --force-remove-reinstreq -i /var/cache/apt/archives/noflushd_2.7.1-2_i386.deb

it still wouldn't work and he ended up installing slackware.

Anybody have a clue?

devfs should be mounted in your fstab if you are using devfs. Otherwise, remove support from your kernel and things will happen normally.
